Audit Senior Associate Interview

Audit Senior Associate
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in July 2011.

Interview Details – For this position, it is important to understand that you are a commodity. The interviewers will not be asking technical questions about the most recent accounting standard or what kind of accounting treatment a lease should get. They are interested in finding someone with a positive attitude, a CPA (or a plan to achieve it), and someone that they will enjoy working with (as you will be working with them some very late nights).

Interview Question – There really were no curveballs thrown at me. Like any other interview, it is important to be prepared for the question, "why are you interested in us?" and "why are you leaving your current job?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I interviewed with three of the four big accounting firms. When I decided to go with Deloitte, I asked them to match the highest offer I received, and they did. For this position, there is not much wiggle room, but if you are a hot commodity, they are willing to up your base salary a couple of thousand.

Very Difficult Interview

Audit Senior Associate Interview

Audit Senior Associate
Orlando, FL

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

Interview Details – You have to constantly call the recruiting manager and show you are interested all the time. Unless you take the initiative, they will dismiss your resume. You have to do your homework about the company and the position you are applying for; many times the recruiting manager has no idea of the details of the position, and to your advantage, that shows interest.

Reason for Declining – Since the recruiter knew less than me about the position, it turned out it wasn't for my city. I had to decline because I can't move and it was too far away to commute.

Interview Details – Came into the office and had a one on one interview with 2 different partners, as well as a senior manager. I was later taken out to dinner with 2 staff members that i would be working with in order to get a feel for the company. The questions with partners were not difficult, they just wanted to get to know me as a person.

Audit Senior Associate

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Deloitte in August 2011.

Interview Details – Firstly got a phone call from HR, kinda like a phone screening; then went to the site for two 1:1 interviews - one partner & one director. The next day got a phone call to ask for another phone interview with another partner who's not on this site. Two days later, HR called and said "congratulation!". All questions are behavior-related. Plus - must be very familar with the resume.
