    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was only one interview. So, I met with the Tax Manager and we had a conversation type interview. It was really relaxed, and I think they were seeing if I could just sit down and have a conversation. There were some questions, but they were all very basic and expected.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a university job posting and was contacted for an on-campus interview. The interview was purely behavioral. Was later contacted for an on-site interview at their office in Boston. The employees were very nice; we were given a brief orientation by the C-level executives and a private tour by one of the leaders of the company. The interviews were also purely behavioral, with only one question about one of my previous job experiences catching me off guard. Overall, a good interviewing experience.

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

    Interview Details

    On campus interview for their office in NY. They have a no stress interview which means they don't ask you questions. So unless you have a really awesome partner you can gel with the interview can get really awkward. My best advice is just to let them do all the talking.

    Negotiation Details
    I should have asked for more. As a college student I knew what other students were getting, and my offer was in the range. But I worked my way through college while holding down several part-time jobs and had prior accounting experience at a private company. If I had emphasized my experience level, I would have set myself apart from the other student recruits.

    Tax Senior Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got the phone call from the recruiter almost the day after I applied for the position online. The recruiter asked some basic questions such as background, job expectation, summary of past experience, totaled 15 minutes. After I told her that I was scheduled for an on-site interview the next week, she scheduled an interview with them immediately.
    The interview was with two directors and one partner. One director seemed pretty serious at the beginning. No specific technical questions or behavior questions asked. Just briefly talking about my past experience, career interests, etc. Another director was more doing the promotion of the company, talking about how great it was to work for this company. Also tried to feel your personality. Finally the partner interview was a bit rough. He came in telling me having not looked at my resume, and asked me to tell him about myself. Tips is to stay calm when interviewer showed less interests in you. He also asked about how I supervised other accountants, some projects I worked on, research skills, etc. He showed more interests as our conversation progressed. I got an offer about three days later.
