Winter Internship Interview

Winter Internship

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

Interview Details – I attended the pathways summer program. the final day was broken down into 2 thirty minute one on one interviews with managers from your preferred line of practice. The first interview was a very easy going conversational style get to know you talk. No technical questions were asked in either interview. The second was slightly more difficult because this manager was in charge of the specific line of practice you were interested in and was looking for a slightly more precise and perhaps technical answer as to why you preferred one division over the other.

Interview Question – none. more or less "tell me about yourself/background and how you got into accounting" and shoot from there.   View Answer

Audit Associate Interview

Audit Associate

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

Interview Details – I had two interviews, one with a manager one with a partner. All companies are about the same, the interview only took a few hours with a tour, 2 interviews, and lunch. Big 4 interviews are like 2 days of meet and greet, activities, etc. This was short.

Interview Question – Why do you like this more than a Big 4?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Absolutely no room to negotiate, you either take it or get lost.

Interview Details – Recruited through career fair on campus. Second interview in 2 years. First interview in 2011 for an internship, second interview in 2012 for a full time position. Both times the interviewer who was a partner told me he was referring me for a second interview. Never got a second interview or even an email stating that I was declined. Very unprofessional company.
