    Winter Tax Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    In the year prior to submitting my application online, I made contact with several people in the office. After submitting the application, I was selected for a phone interview. The second round of interviews took place in the office and consisted of three one-on-one interviews with partners and senior managers, lunch with a staff and a senior, and an optional evening reception with all the candidates and numerous employees and partners.
    The whole process was very businesslike and professional but not intimidating. I felt very comfortable with everyone involved in the process as well as with what I saw of the office culture.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Manager/Supervisor I met with was arrogant and had a horrible attitude. She asked condescending questions and kept telling me what I would need to be doing. We talked a bit about marketing, and I mentioned how it's so important to stay on top of the new apps or trends in online marketing these days. She says "Oh you won't have time to do that because you'll have DEADLINES." Like she was already upset with me and I don't even work for her yet. She tried to stress me out about the position and how important it was. I never stress, and never panic, so she was getting frustrated. I will never work for that woman.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a Contractor Company. The Contractor was not the most helpful, but once I was in the position that ceased to be an issue. I was hired 'Full Time' about a year after working at Moss Adams. I received a small raise for being onboarded.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received call to go in for an interview within 2 day. I then had 4 interviews back to back in 1 day. They were very quick to decide, which is a big plus, I received my offer letter within 3 business days after the interview. Over all the hiring and interviewing process was very efficient and painless. I wouldn't recommend going through staffing agency.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through college recruiting and applied to a tax staff position on their website. I flew in for a social event where you are in a room with partners and senior managers and 30+ other students. The interview was held on the next day. There are four 30-minute interviews with partners/managers (you will meet one at a time) and a chat session/office tour with another partner/manager. After that, you will wait for a week or so to hear from them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected question; I got general interview questions. You just need to be able to chat comfortably and have fun. They will probably ask what you like to do outside of work.   Answer Question

    Senior Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was not a typical interview. There were not really any questions about what I did or situations I had experienced in the past. The interview was about getting to understand the firm and the position and determining if I was a good fit for the firm and the firm was a good fit for me. Overall, the interview was one of the better more relaxed interviews I have been on. The interview lasted four hours and involved 7 individuals, but was very informal and pleasant.

    Interview Questions
    • There were not any real questions in the interview. It was a conversation and dialogue to gauge interest and understanding about the position.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Received another offer at the same time that I felt I needed to accept in order to reach my career goals at the time. If I had not received the other offer I would have accepted the offer from Moss Adams. The people truly were very friendly and great to meet with.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP.

    Interview Details

    On campus interviews, then second round in the office. Generally very nice, somewhat disorganized in communicating with candidates about travel and reimbursement for expenses. In house interview was a presentation and 3 interviews and an in house lunch. Gave the offer early and the deadline to accept (with an extension) was before inhouse interviews ended with other competing accounting firms, this puts candidates in an awkward position

    Interview Questions
    • Make sure to have a lot of questions to ask the partners. I had an entire interview where all they wanted was for me to ask questions. No technical questions or behavioral questions. Just went over the resume and wanted to know about CPA. Again, have a lot of questions.   Answer Question
