Interview Process Was Horrible!! Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at LarsonAllen in June 2012.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 1 manager that told me the incorrect PTO and didn't find out until later that it was less PTO. I must say I was dissappointed with that. Then I was told I had to market myself after I was verbally hired to even get a client. They send me out to a client and I was not even paid for it. I thought what did I get myself into with this company? The marketing didn't go well because I was stressed out thinking about what a terrible place that I just committed to. The job never transpired and I was sort of glad. I was lied to on several occasions by managers. The hiring manager told me that they had 3 jobs for me and possibly more. They didn't have one. I took another job. I'm smarter than that to work for this group of people.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult which is scary.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Liars. They said they had clients and they didn't have nothing concrete. The clients were only potential. Nothing was guaranteed.

Staff Accountant Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LarsonAllen in October 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process began after meeting LarsonAllen at an Accounting and Auditing Student conference. I introduced myself to one of their representatives and we spoke for a minute or two and I left him with my resume.

A few weeks later I was contacted by LarsonAllen proposing a phone interview of which eventually happened and lasted about 10-15 minutes with them primarily explaining the position and asking behavioral/situational questions.

I was then offered an opportunity to interview in office the following week. I meet and interviewed 1 on 1 back to back with four individuals. Once was a recruiting coordinator, another a manager, and then two principals. The questions were again all behavioral or situational, but it felt like they just wanted to chat about me and get to know me and how I would fit in.
