Accounting Internship Interview

Accounting Internship

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in October 2012.

Interview Details – The recruitment process was that similar to one of the big four accounting firms. They provided a meet and greet event the day before the interview to get to know the employees a little. I met the firm at an event held at my university and I love everyone that I met with. I was then invited to an interview, which included a meet and greet the day before.

Interview Question – I didn't think that they asked anything that was particularly difficult. Just your average interview questions while trying to remain personable.   Answer Question

Tax Staff Interview

Tax Staff
Knoxville, TN

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in September 2009.

Interview Details – Campus interview through a career fair, behavioral interview was the norm with them, but have since changed to more casual process, typically done by a manager or sr. manager and only got to meet the partner at the office visit, the process was slow and I had to hold off a few other offers since this was the job I wanted.

Interview Question – Give my an example of a time when you had to deliver bad news to somebody.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – None, it was my first job

IT Manager Interview

IT Manager
Oak Brook, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Crowe Horwath in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interviews were easy, they need to hire competent people and will ask you to describe skills, experiences, projects, etc. Know your game and you will get through it. I knew more than the technical interviewers, so was actually fun. Background check was extremely thorough, any skeletons in the closet will be found if you aren't professional.

Interview Question – My interview was so easy, there was not a difficult or unexpected question although the onsite interview took a full day.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase, they had a range with a limit, I asked for the limit and got it.
