Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Colliers International in February 2008.

Interview Details

The company posted an ad on Craigslist. After the initial meeting, a basic accounting skills test was given (written, calculator allowed). As long as you know your accounting equation, how to create journal entries, and basic accounting principles (no prior period adjustments, accrual based vs. cash based accounting, and general ledger principles) you should do fine. From my observation, how you perform on the test will determine the difficulty of the portfolio assigned to you. The second interview is much easier - you will most likely go to lunch with staff members for an informal meeting where your personality will be (indirectly) assessed.

As for the people, office, and work culture - pleasant, overall. I'd say the value of desirable work qualities are in this order: 1. The ability to get along and be pleasant (no matter what), 2. To form as many important connections as possible, 3. To understand how to communicate with the executives (think "chain of command"), 4. Determine all the "inter-relationships" between executives/staff (Asian and Hawaiian culture has a huge influence).

Interview Questions
  • There are really no "difficult" or "unexpected" questions asked. It is pretty standard - what is your relevant experience, what can you bring to the company, and what is your general personality?   Answer Question
