I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in November 2013.
Interview Details – The process was through my University's OCR process. Each one of us interviewed with a partner and senior manager on campus for 30 minutes a piece. Each had different approach to their interviews. The partner was more technical and specific while the senior manager wanted to get more of a feel of your personality and how your brain clicks. It was formal vs informal to say it best. It was actually not stressful at all. This was for the NYC office, so I'm not sure how other offices administer their OCR process. 2 weeks later we got called in for an official office visit where we had a very informal interview with a partner and then had lunch. There wasn't anything intense or intimidating about the whole process. They really try to sell themselves as a contrast to the Big 4.
Interview Question – There wasn't anything that stood out as difficult, but a question that surprised me was, "What makes you different from each one of your classmates?" I had a good answer as I have lots of experience in many different fields, but it wasn't something that I expected Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Crowe Horwath.
Interview Details – Two interviews, back to back. First interview was more of a go through resume and behavioral. Second was more conversational.

Interview Details – Communication with recruiter was very pleasant and prompt. Interview was not nerve-racking at all and I felt like it was more of a discussion with the partner. I had a great impression of the office environment. I received an answer within a few days of my interview. Staff at the firm were welcoming and open to answering any questions.
Interview Question – the questions were all manageable ones Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in June 2012.
Interview Details – 2 interviews, thought everyone was passionate about what they do and I thought they did a great job of selling the firm. Most important thing is to be able to explain why you want to work for them as opposed to big 4.
The process took 3 days - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in April 2012.
Interview Details – Received an offer to interview through the career website at school. Went in for the on campus interviews and had 2 behavioral. Invited for an office visit which consisted of a discussion, not really a true interview, and a lot of presentations about the firm. Rather easy and laid back. Was surprised there was no technical interview as every other company I worked for had one. Seemed more focused on whether you would "be fun" to work with rather than your skill level.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself. Not school, not background, but you. What makes you you? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in November 2011.
Interview Details – The two people I interviewed with were really nice and willing to answer any questions I had about Crowe. I initially applied online and received a call from a recruiter a few days later to schedule an interview. It consisted of two 1:1 interviews where they asked mostly behavioral type questions.. "Tell me a time when..." If you're confident in your answers, and know how to tie in different situations into your answers you'll do fine.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in October 2011.
Interview Details –
The university I attended had a Pre-Recruiting process in place which is where I meet the firm, talked with a couple of employees and passed on my resume. From this process I got an on campus interview. The interview consisted of 2, 1-on-1 interviews with managers at the firm. They asked some personality questions, some scenario/behavioral based questions but overall it seemed like they just wanted to get to know you. I balance between professionalism as well as more relaxed conversation but each person is different just like each firm is different. You really want to be as much like a professional "yourself" as you can. If you are fake the entire time and they cannot tell, then you may end up with a firm you don't even like. Not everyone is right for every firm, you really need to find a firm that fits well with you and you with them.
After the on-campus interview I had a technical phone interview regarding computer applications I have used in the past.
My perceptions of the people are great so far! It is a large firm with great talent so you will be expected to work efficient and hard. The people are great and fit very well with my personality. The office in Grand Rapids is excellent, right down town with plenty or things to do after work. Busy season is busy season, you work a lot.
Hope this helps!
