Interview Question – There wasn't any really difficult questions. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Kaplan in January 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter in early December 2012 for a phone interview and didn't hear back from them until mid-January for a personal interview with two Senior Accountants. The interview was quite casual, where the interviewers asked a series of behavioral questions and then questions based on what was on my resume. The interview lasted about an hour then I received a call from them on my way home to schedule an interview with the department's VP for the following week. The questions asked by the VP were mostly behavioral and also included questions regarding concerns I had about my ability to complete the tasks that will be required. I was told towards the end of the interview that they will make a decision the following week however I didn't hear back from them within the time frame mentioned and saw a few days later that the position was re-posted on the company's website. They called me with an offer about two weeks after my last interview.
Interview Question – Of the three candidates we are selecting from, why should we hire you? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The salary offered for the position was higher than expected however I received a higher offer from another company.
