    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Grant Thornton International in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process begins with a telephone screening asking some basic questions regarding your academic history, motives for joining the accounting profession, basic impressions of GT, and your choice and reasoning as to either tax or audit. Once approved, you are invited to the local office along with a group of other applicants. An HR representative gives you a tour of the offices and the individual interviews begin shortly thereafter. The interview process is conducted in rounds where each applicant is passed between individual managers and partners of either tax or audit. To the best of my memory, I interviewed with at least 3 individuals. At the end of the day, accepted applicants are discreetly asked to remain behind and are given a formal written offer with a tiered bonus package depending on the date of acceptance.

    Meet and greet held the night before for candidates at local restaurant. On-campus interview the following day. Interviewers seemed disinterested about even being there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Grant Thornton International in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    THe interview from start to finish was a smooth process, however there was a slight issue with communication. I had to chase the employer a couple of times to speed up the process. Furthermore the numerical and verbal reasoning tests were quite difficult although retakes are possible for strong candidates.
