    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (New Haven, CT) in March 2015.

    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.

    • The questions were fairly simple and it was more conversational rather than an actual interview. One thing that I would strongly advise is that make sure you know your resume front and back, and also be ready to talk about ALL of the things that you have listed on your resume.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Bronx, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to interview after meeting representatives at my school's career fair. Interview was super relaxed and conversational. Took about 30 min, half of which was the interviewer telling me about himself and the program itself. He gave me time to ask any questions I had, so make sure you have questions prepared. He made jokes and was very nice, so it wasn't intimidating at all.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    McGladrey Talent Executives continuously interview candidates for open positions. More often than not these positions are posted in preparation for an upcoming engagement sale. They are very slow in execution of the interview process until a staffing need has been established via a sold engagement. Once a need has been established they will hire whomever is in front of them. If you would like to work at McGladrey befriend your Talent Executive, if he or she is impressed by you - he or she will put you in front of the appropriate person, tell you what you need to know, and hand hold you through the process.
