    Audit Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at CohnReznick (Fairfax, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was emailed saying that I had an interview with them. I was instructed to fill out their questionnaire (link was provided in the email), and also bring a copy of my transcript and the questionnaire to the interview. The interview was one on one with on of their auditing staff, and was actually pretty relaxed. The questions were pretty basic interview questions like "what was a setback you faced and how did you react to it" or "a specific project that you were successful on, and how did you achieve that success".

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly basic, but the most unexpected was "provide an example outside of school that you were faced with a problem and how did you solve it?" LIke I said they were straightforward questions that didn't really involve any acccounting or business related skills.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CohnReznick (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    initial contact through HR Recruiter on the phone- asked basic questions about resume, what i was looking for in a job, etc.
    interview- 2 partners & 1 manager: fairly straight forward, nothing out of the ordinary, took about 1.5 hours, partners asked very similar questions but in separate interviews. manager asked more technical questions, however it turns out that he was one of the more technical managers. asked a lot about what certifications you are looking to obtain (typical for an accounting/consulting firm)

    partners are easy to talk to and make you comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • one partner had me ask questions the entire time, so be prepared to have a lot of questions, and not just the standard 1-2 that you ask at the end. be prepared to be able to speak on anything on your resume   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiated salary but was tough; i was able to stand firm as i had a job at the time. management did not seem to want to budge on their initial offer which was quite low. have heard from others that they would not budge at all and accepted a low offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CohnReznick (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    People at reznick are definitely interested in how smart you are, but resumes that jump out at partners are a well balanced one. Someone who gets good grades (3.0 is good) is involved in school (fraternity, clubs, volunteer events) has a part time job and then can back all of these things up goes a long way. My personality definitely won me this job.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CohnReznick (Bethesda, MD) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Super easy interview with very inexperienced interviewers. If you've interviewed before, you can excel at this interview. They really just want to tell you about them, not ask behavioral questions or anything. One partner asked me what I was looking for. When I said a place that I could give some input and feel a part of a team, she became excited. The HR interview was with a woman who talked so fast "Are you ready if we make you an offer today?" My answer was "No, I need more time. I want to make the right decision."

    Interview Questions

    • This might seem like a joke for an EA, but "I don't want someone to tell my clients I'm at the hair salon, even if I am. They should be told I'm out of the office at a meeting. And I don't want them to know when I go to the bathroom."   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They basically offered the job for higher than I had been told and said "this is a final offer, we've gone much higher than we thought we could." That was honest. I negotiated about certain days off (during the week between Christmas and New Year) and felt like an idiot because it was NO problem getting those days and getting them in writing. I also wanted specifics on what the benefits would cost me as I'd had a bad experience with another firm who would not tell me. That was also NO problem. I was very impressed, to be honest. The only strange thing about the next phase was that they didn't check references or my background until AFTER I accepted the offer. But, they expected me to give notice BEFORE their background check was complete. (I refused to do so, even though I had nothing to hide -- and apparently, with a little bit of assertiveness, that was okay.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CohnReznick (Bethesda, MD) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through on-campus recruiting. I had a half-hour phone interview with the HR before my on-site interviews, which were 1:1 with 2 managers and a partner. The whole process including the hiring decision took no more than 2 weeks. The questions were ALL behavioral. None of the questions were too difficult. They mostly want to make sure you'll get along with others and you are willing to put in extra hours during the busy season.
