I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Grant Thornton, LLP in January 2013.
Interview Details – I applied for the position at the end of November. After periodically checking on their website to see the status of my application, I received an email requesting a phone interview in mid-January. Within 2 days we had a time set up for 2 days later (so a 4 day span). I was called by the regional recruiter who was located in PA I believe (the position was in NYC). It started off as standard fare: walk me through your resume and experience, etc. It then took an odd turn, when I feel the interviewer was sort of delving too much into my personal matters and underplaying a position I had because it was an unpaid internship- (uh, sorry I wanted experience in my desired field?!). I was actually asked, "well what do you do for money then?" and when I came up with some reply it was as if he still wouldn't let go (I'm a tough cookie, but judgement dripping from his voice-ugh) . Interviewer then told that the hiring manager might want someone with more experience, but that I'd hear back from them.... sure. I had written them off after the vibes from that call and good thing, because they eventually filled the position- I at least would have expected a rejection message; overall it was professional enough.
