Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

Interview

I had the best experience ever. The interview was too easy and open for any discussion. It was two audit partners who spoke to me. I have heard the similar experience from another friend if mine too. They asked mostly behavioral questions and went over my resume. Prepare stories about leadership experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had one in office interview and met with an audit partner and a senior audit manager. Both were extremely hospitable, but they seemed uninterested in the conversation and were not interested in small talk. This was for the government audit group located in Oak Brook, IL. The Senior Audit Manager attempted to give life advice in regards to public accounting.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Met them at career fair, submit my resume. Had an on campus interview with 2 senior managers, back-to-back, 30 mins each. They play good cop bad cop. One goes through your resume, one is more on conversational basis. Just make sure to come up with a lot of questions cause they expect you to have questions. Got invited to a prenight event at Top Golf Dallas, which was very nice. They divide you up in groups of 6, 3 candidates, 3 staffs are in each group. The office visit cool, they held a panel discussion, you have chances to ask questions. Then they interview you, similar to on campus interview, 2 30 mins interviews back-to-back. Office tour, presentations, and then took you out for lunch( they also offer breakfast too btw). Gave each candidate a bag of gift, with cupcakes, a mug, and also a Starbucks gift card. Overall very nice office visit, they give out a positive vibe.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview, an on-campus interview with two people, then a final phone interview. One of the on-campus interviews was behavioral-based but other than that it was very conversational. After I received an offer I had an office visit and had a great time learning about the firm and the people I would be working with.

    Interview

    Applied through on campus recruiting. Pre-night event at a bar near campus. First round = back-to-back interviews with 2 people. Pretty chill. All behavioural questions. Heard back in around 1.5 weeks with an invitation for office visit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath.

    Interview

    I talked to them at career fair, submitted my resume. I was then invited via email to a pre-night and the interview. The interview was one hour long, with a partner and a senior manager. The partner was rude and cut me at 1 question (no time constraint). This company is not professional at all, during the pre-night one of the senior staff walks out in the middle of a conversation with no explanation with a smirk on his face. This company claims diversity but are miles away from it.

    Interview Questions

    • This company is extremely unprofessional. The people who interview have a predetermined list of questions and circle a question that is related to what is on your resume. They will ask for a time management (prioritize task) and many group related behavioral questions. The questions are tough due to the staff thinking they're BIG4 when they're light years away from that. You will never be Big4 with that attitude, for one, BIG4 has people personalities which Crowe does not!   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Dallas, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was really smooth and quick. I had a phone interview 2 weeks prior to the office visit. At the office visit we met with managers and got a chance to talk to staff about their experience. Overall they people are amazing, which is what sets apart Crowe from other firms. After the office visit I was offered a full time position within a week. Looking forward to becoming a part of this great firm.
