    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at McGladrey LLP (Schaumburg, IL) in September 2007.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very simple. The recruiter that came to my university was also a college friend. He was able to turn my resume in. After that, their human resource department contacted me with a list of times to come up to Schaumburg and I was able to select a time that worked with my college schedule. Once I was there for my interview, everyone was very relaxed and were not intimidating at all. Once in the interview I could immediately tell the work culture was exactly what I pictured myself working in.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There were no reasons to negotiate. Salary level and bonus exceeded my expectations and other offers I received from other companies.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at McGladrey LLP (New York, NY) in November 2007.

    Interview

    I first had a brief phone interview because RSM didn't recruit at my college.

    When I came to the in-person interview they had a group of 10 'interviewees' and we had an open discussion for several minutes with the head of the NY office. After that we had 2 one-on-one interviews with different partners where they asked us the basic questions like - 'tell me about yourself', and 'why did you choose accounting'. After that we regrouped and went to lunch with everyone. I received a phone call later that day with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was a standard offer given to everyone with no room for negotiation.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in November 2008.

    Interview

    Applied through their online system. HR missed the boat on contacting me, but seemed like an accident. Eventually setup an interview, which was a process of 3 1-on-1's. Everyone was very friendly, got a decent look at the work environment in the office. Was not able to 1-on-1 with one of the employees, and did a phone interview instead afterwords. Seemed like a good place to work, everyone said good things about the work-life balance there as well.
