    Interview Details

    I applied through campus job board. Before the first interview, there was a social night, where you could have a chance to talk with the interviewers. They were the directors in each departments and they were very happy to get you to know more about Crowe. The first interview was a back-to-back interview, 30 mins for each. One is basically behavioral questions and the other one is technical questions. Three weeks later, an one and half day company visit with a final interview.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a school career fair. Was contacted 2 weeks later saying I had been selected for an on-campus interview. Attended a pre-interview dinner the night before where there was an opportunity to mingle, meet your interviewers, and also a short presentation. The interview was the following day and was an hour long, back to back with 2 partners. They played "good cop, bad cop" as there was one interviewer that asked behavioral questions and filled out a form and another that just talked to you about your resume, questions you had, and was much more conversational. Overall, easy interview process.

    Reasons 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.
