Interview Details

Campus interview which was all behavioral, then in the office for 3 thirty minute grill sessions from two managers and the practice partner. Pretty standard stuff, just a resume run through, career motivations, what you think you can do to add value to client work, etc. No business case or brain teasers.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview Details

    First I had an on campus 1:1, then on site for 3 1:1's. Everyone was very nice, and focused mostly on interpersonal skills, with a bit of technical questioning. The offer was made promptly after the interview cycle, within a week or so. Plenty of transparency throughout.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Grant Thornton in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was more informal at first, then culminated by meeting with 3 of the senior staff as well as the recruiter. I really liked the fact that the process was focused on how I would fit with the team personally and professionally. They really respected the fact that I am capable of learning quickly and they were very honest about the work load I could expect. There was no sugar coating.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Grant Thornton in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college and was selected for on campus interview. The interview itself was pretty easy, conversational and no behavioral questions. They just just wanted to determine how well you would fit with the company. If you are invited for an interview, try to make an impression and demonstrate your professionalism and personality.
