    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email within a day or two to set up a phone screening. The phone screening was about a 45 minute phone call with a recruiter just asking typical interview questions (strengths, weaknesses, experience). A few days later I was informed my resume would be forwarded to the branch I applied at. I haven't been contacted by the branch yet (about a week ago).

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt.

    Interview

    Had an intial telephone interview, where recruiter went over my past experience and skills. Thought the questions were pertinent, and felt I responded "spot on". Told I would be contacted on a particular day for a follow-up for an in person meeting. Person never contacted me; I sent a follow-up email expressing continued interest, as I never received initial feedback. Received a standard "we won't be considering you" e-mail reply.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt.

    Interview

    Got contacted for an on-campus interview which consisted of behavioral questions and other questions about how I work in teams. The next day was invited for the in-house interviews. The in-house interview consisted of a 30 minute basic accounting test then 3 one-on-one interviews with tax managers then lunch with 3 tax staff. The in-house interview as a whole was really easy. The recruiters really treat everyone with respect and value each one of their candidates.
