    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kearney & Company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kearney & Company in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my campus career center and was invited for an on campus interview. A few weeks later I was invited to an open house at their Alexandria office. There were about 8 other college interviewees. Kearney paid for hotel and parking and dinner the night before the interviews. The day of the interviews we were given a presentation on the benefits of mission of the company. From there we had three one on one interviews with senior management. About two weeks later Kearney started the background check process and two weeks after that I received an offer.

    Staff II Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kearney & Company in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty painless. I had a phone interview first and knew that since Kearney was a CPA firm and I was not a CPA, I had to communicate my desire to become one in the immediate future. I came in, met with the recruiter, he walked me around and we discussed the job, my qualifications, etc. Pretty normal stuff. I met with two other staff II accountants (auditors) and asked questions about their job, challenges they faced coming in, etc. Again, pretty standard stuff. It took a while before I got an offer, I guess they were waiting on a spot to open up for an audit, but once it did, the offer came out quickly and I was hired.

    Interview Questions
    • I always hate the "what is your biggest weakness" question. My biggest weakness answer is always the same, public speaking.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation at the Staff II level.
