    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at McGladrey LLP (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    There were three interviews, one screening on the phone, an initial in person interview, and a follow up interview in person. You'll meet nearly everyone you'll be working for to make sure you're a good fit for your team and the company. I think I met at least six people through my interviewing process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    Overall a great interview process. HR was extremely helpful and the interview process had no case component which allowed you to really express who you are and why you're a good fit.

    Round 1: In office: Three consecutive 30-45 minute interviews (Associate, Manager, Director). Mainly asking why you want to work there over other firms (important to note middle market)
    - A good reason for the middle market is that you are put on meaningful projects that you won't get in boutique firms, but get exposure to decision makers which you might not get at a large firm.

    Round 2: Confirmation email with another Director
    - Overall very friendly environment

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    There was an interview on campus after many meetings through networking events. I had never met the person interviewing me prior to the interview. Attending the events was definitely worth it though to grasp the culture of the firm.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    I went in for an office interview and met with a partner for about an hour. It was a very warm environment and the staff were nice. I thought I would have more interviews but only spoke with the partner. I was asked typical interview questions more than behavioral, which surprised me. Afterwards, I probably asked the partner 8-10 questions but he seemed impressed that I did my research and I was curious about the firm's culture.

    Got the call later that day that I got the position.

    Interview

    A professor e-mailed all accounting majors with specifications for applying. I sent my resume and cover letter, which were passed on to a McGladrey recruiter. Within 4 weeks, I had an interview at the nearest McGladrey office. The interview was more of a conversation. No traditional behavioral questions were asked. I'd recommend having losts of questions or the conversation may trail off. Also, make sure to be informed about the company.
