    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I 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.
