    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Grant Thornton (New Orleans, LA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Grant Thornton recruited me from my college campus. The night before the interview we went to dinner and I spoke with several employees. The employees did not ask technical questions and were trying to gage who I was as a person. The next day I had an interview with the employees who were not at my table. The interview was behavioral and fairly simple. There were no technical questions. Most questions were asking why I chose that particular office, why I wanted to do audit, what activities I had partcipated in college, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Grant Thornton (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied twice. First, through an employee referral but got rejected due to my visa status. Three months later, I tried again by depositing my CV on their website. Few hours later, I got a phone call -- this mainly consists of screening questions. I was then scheduled the next day for an interiview with an Assistant Manger. Questions mainly involved IAS and IFRS technicalites. Later in the afternoon, I got scheduled for another interview with a Manager on the next day. This interview again is about the accounting standards, though I was also asked about risk assessments and audit procedure. The next day, I was scheduled for the final interview with an Audit Partner. Only a few behavioral questions were asked.
