Audit Assistant Interview

Audit Assistant
Fresno, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.

Interview Details – I asked my professor about the Deloitte office in Fresno, CA. He called someone at their office on Tuesday morning. Within 30 minutes they emailed me asking me to meet them for coffee that Saturday. I was offered the job at that interview.

I don't think this is a normal experience, I have a GPA of 3.95 and they were very impressed. Also, a professor referral goes a long way, and he was an amazing professor.

Interview Question – None - very informal interview.   Answer Question

Audit Assistant Interview

Audit Assistant
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2010.

Interview Details – Started the interview process by submitting my resume through the college portal for public accounting interviews. The Big Four accounting firms then came to campus & selected the candidates they wanted to interview. Initial interviews were held with the Recruiting person who either passed you through to the real interviews or declined any further progress. Once you made the next round there was typically a night-time social followed by 3 interviews the at the company office the next day. After my office interviews, I was notified the next day that I received an offer.
