I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

Interview

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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Resume was sent over by family member. Initially contacted by recruiter who conducted a phone interview. Then a face to face interview was setup. Face to face interview was conducted one and then an offer was given the next day. Very smooth process. I would advise anyone going in to brush up on their interview skills and to have as much information on the Firm as possible. It is a partnership so information is somewhat limited.

    Interview Questions

    • Not a terribly difficult interview. Not the easiest, but certainly not the hardest I had.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I did OCR interview. 30 min with HR and 30 min with an Audit partner. The pre-night reception was worth going, just to mingle with the current employees in a not-so-formal environment and get to know your interviewers. I didn't get the offer but love the culture, people are very nice and laid-back.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't prepare my questions. the interview with partner was more like a conversation but instead I was too nervous. Just relax and enjoy the conversation, you will be fine.   Answer Question

    Application

    I interviewed at Grant Thornton in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was okay. It had two parts: phone and then in-person. The questions were pretty standard questions, mostly behavioural ones. In terms of time length, the phone interview was around 20 minutes. They give you a time from of when they would call but not an exact time so you're just there waiting.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time when you had to juggle multiple responsibilities.   Answer Question
