The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Grant Thornton International in October 2010.
Interview Details – Applied through university and received a chance to meet with two partners and the recruiter at their federal practice. There were three other candidates there, but I was the only one with an IT related background. Recruiter talked about positions, career progression, company, etc. First partner asked what my background/strengths were. Second partner asked about what I was interested in to see if I would stay long term - I mentioned IT security, which is a stable and growing field, especially at GT.

The process took a day - interviewed at Grant Thornton International in July 2009.
Interview Details – Interviewed with 3 different senior employees and lastly, the recruiter. The actual time they spent asking me questions was about 20% and the rest is them asking you if you have any questions, so preparing to ask questions is key. The more I spoke with each of the interviewers, the more I liked the company. They asked team questions (teams that worked well & why, teams with conflict & strategies to overcome the conflict). Really, the direction of the interview is up to the interviewee. My impression is that they expected you to be prepared to present yourself, your skills and experience even without prompting from them. Just because they don't ask, doesn't mean you don't say want you want them to know.
