IT Risk Auditor Interview

IT Risk Auditor

Interviewed at Crowe Horwath

Interview Details – The interview process started with an initial phone screen by Human Resources, followed by a technical phone screen by a manager. Then, a half-day onsite series of interviews with four different personnel was scheduled.

Interview Question – During my onsite interview, I was taken to lunch and was asked a number of inappropriate personal questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I did not feel comfortable with the personnel I met, and the overall vibe of the company. The Chinese partner I spoke with seemed very pretentious and lacking in depth, while the rest of the interviewers seemed too shallow. Eerie, indeed.
