    Audit Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Grant Thornton (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Like most public accounting firms, interviews began on my college campus. Once I made it past that stage, there were four 30 minute interviews at the office I had applied for. They also had an optional (highly suggest you intend, though) "pre-night" event at a local restaurant. This gave you an opportunity to get to know more of the staff, so you can get the feel if the company is the right fit for you outside of the office.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview process. Two rounds, mainly behavioral questions with some situational questions and questions about working in a team setting. Very friendly interviewers who were happy to answer any questions or concerns I had about the position and seemed to have positive feelings about working at Grant Thornton. I would definitely prepare basic accounting concepts but overall mainly focused on behavioral questions.

He asked questions about my resume for the most part. I talked about my background, why I chose the school I did, my major, why consulting etc. I got invited within a week to come to the office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Grant Thornton in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my University recruiting. I had an interview with a partner and it was very easy and informative. The night before the interview we had dinner at a nice restaurant in town and we spoke with associates and partners and it made the interview process the next day a lot easier knowing who we would be meeting. Then I was asked for a second office interview and before that we had a social event with more associates and other recruits that would be at the office visit and we bowled and talked with the associates. Then we had the office visit and we were toured around and there were 2 interviews, one with a senior associate and one with a director. Once again very conversational easy interviews. The office visit also included a lunch with associates. I was called the next day with an offer! I loved the firm I just had another offer that I felt was a better fit for me.

    I applied online – interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Phone Interview first and then interview in person. Never got to the second step though.

    They were very nice. Phone interview are basic general questions to weed people out, which I know now.
