Tax Intern Interview

Tax Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cherry Bekaert in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through my school. It took a few weeks. Once transcripts were sent, they scheduled an interview. There were roughly 15 people there when I showed up. They took us to a nice lunch. After, we each had two 30 minute interviews with two different partners. Very casual interview. They allowed me plenty of time to ask questions and get to know about them and their firm.

Interview Question – I didn't think there were any difficult or unexpected questions. They just wanted to get to know me and see if I would fit into their workplace and what I where I wanted to be in a few years career wise.   Answer Question

Audit Intern Interview

Audit Intern
Roanoke, VA

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cherry Bekaert in July 2012.

Interview Details – They contacted me about 3 weeks before the intended week that the interview was for. They asked me to get back to them asap about my availability that week. I emailed them back within the hour and never heard anything about when the interview was. I emailed them the Sunday before and they emailed me back saying that my interview was the next day at 8:00 am. I never heard whether it was an Audit position or Tax. Not having all that information before really put a damper on the interview. They asked pretty simple easy questions.

Interview Question – What were your likes and dislikes from working in public and corporate accounting.   Answer Question

Senior Associate Interview

Senior Associate
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cherry Bekaert in September 2009.

Interview Details – I caught them at a very busy time so it appeared that they were a little bit more disorganized at first. They started with an initial phone interview which went very well. After the phone interview there was a call back where an in-person interview was scheduled. Between the phone interview and in-person interview there is a personality test to be completed. The in-person interview consists of meeting with the HR individual and 3 senior level employees.

One thing you do want to keep in mind is that they will informally ask employees at your old firm (whether they are your reference or not) for an informal review of your background.

Interview Question – Very detailed questions about working with clients and other staff?   Answer Question
