    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview process. First round--on campus. Second round--office visit with three interviewers.

    It's important to make a good impression at events during the pre-interview stage. Getting to know the firm and the people handling recruiting at career fairs and social events goes a long way towards doing well during more formal interviews. I had already established a good report with my first-round interviewer at prior events, so the actual interview went very smoothly.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Interviews were mainly behavioral.   View Answer

    Senior IT Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview Details

    Applied for job stand alone through their careers website. Was contacted at first through email, followed by a standard HR phone interview. This was more informative for myself, and a few simple questions of what I am looking for. This was followed by a phone interview with the Director and manager of the open position. Some more information about the position, and began some quick technical talk on certain points in my resume.

    A few days later I was contacted to come in for an on-site interview. The interview itself was again very casual and was split into 3 separate portions each with one person. No loops or case questions, and each person did a very good job of selling to me which is always refreshing.

    Interview Questions
    • No case questions, not even the standard lines of 'greatest strengths', etc. I was questioned on certain technical points on my resume, but only to the extent of walk me through your experiences with x, y, and z.   Answer Question

    Only went through one interview - they seemed to take candidates who did not do as well in school as the Big 4 liked, which was beneficial. Just because someone is book smart does not mean that they can do their job well.
