    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Grant Thornton in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Grant Thornton does a great job recruiting at nearby universities by conducting on-campus information sessions, recruiting events, and job interviews. This enabled students with a heavy senior year workload to compete for good post-graduate job opportunities by not having to travel and miss classes. There was plenty of information shared with students during the information sessions, and the interview process and communications were very clear and professional.

    Interview Questions
    • We had a group interview where 6 interview candidates were given a problem to solve together while interviewers took notes and observed how candidates communicated and worked toward a solution as a team under a time limit.   View Answer
