Staff Accountant Interview

Staff Accountant
Portland, OR

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in August 2010.

Interview Details – Resume was submitted by a senior manager of another office to them.I then interviewed with 3 different people, each for 30 minutes and the third one was with the managing partner.

Interview Question – Nothing really hard- each interviewer asked different questions but all were about me or from my resume. No questions were hard/tricky/unexpected or testing your knowledge.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate because I needed a job and the salary seemed fair.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in June 2013.

Interview Details – The initial phone interview for the position went very well. Standard get-to-know-you questions, but the recruiter was very pleasant and I felt like we were having a nice conversation. The in-person interview was a different story. I had a one-on-one interview which was a similar pleasant experience. It was, unfortunately, followed by an interview with two ladies who were very cold and unpleasant. I felt they didn't give me a chance from the moment they saw me for whatever reason (maybe they didn't like my blouse?) and answering their questions was uncomfortable. I knew I didn't want to work at that company after speaking with them.

Interview Question – How do we know you're not just going to quit as soon as you get a job in your field?   Answer Question

Valuation Analyst Interview

Valuation Analyst
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in September 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online after being referred by classmate in grad school. Had a one hour phone interview with the corporate recruiter in Seattle. She was very friendly and very thorough in trying to figure out my story. I did a lot of explaining my career path and why I wanted the job. I got asked for an in-person interview in the Portland, OR office. The in-person interview was actually three 20-30 minute interviews back-to-back with the managers in the department I would be working in. Again, all polite and friendly, albeit repetitive, just getting to know me. Had I gotten through the round (I didn't), there would have been another round of interviews with the partners.

Interview Question – How would you go about performing a valuation on (my former small non-public company)?   View Answers (2)

On-campus: 30 minute Interview with a partner on campus. The questions were strictly behavioral and we spent sometime chatting about my resume then concluded with questions for the interviewer.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in June 2008.

Staff Accountant Interview

Staff Accountant
Portland, OR

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in November 2011.

Interview Details – I applied through campus recruiting. The first interview took place on campus two weeks after my application was submitted. Two weeks later, I was invited to the second interview, which was at their main office. It was about four hours long started with a brief presentation about the firm, and followed by four 1:1 interviews with managers, senior managers, and partners. A post-interview social event was hosted to give candidates a chance to meet other people at the firm. Overall, everyone was very nice and friendly and the interview process is well-organized.

Senior Auditor Interview

Senior Auditor
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in June 2010.

Interview Details – HR was very responsive and helpful on setting up multiple interviews in different offices. Standard phone screen with the recruiter within a day of applying. First face to face interview within a week; subsequent face to face soon thereafter. Conditional offer out within 3 weeks of the initial application submission. Interview process was more 'how well do you fit into our culture' than technical. Heavy emphasis however on leadership skills and ability to juggle multiple engagements at once.

Interview Question – How much travel are you willing to do?   View Answer

Navigate Your Career Conference Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Moss Adams LLP in April 2010.

Interview Details – As I waited for the interview in my career center, I chatted with a recruiter who asked me about my interests, what classes I was taking, what I had done the previous weekend, etc. Then, I was called in to an interview room to have a formal interview with another recruiter. She asked about my resume, my interests. Pretty standard.
