Accountant Interview

Reading, PA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at ParenteBeard in November 2009.

Interview Details – I sent an e-mail to the HR contact on the website and was scheduled for an interview almost immediately. About a week later I met with the HR director and had a 1:1 interview in their main office. The interview questions were standard - why did you attend your college, why did you choose accounting, why this company, what are your hobbies, etc. There were no technical questions. Got an offer the next week.

Accounting Interview


I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ParenteBeard in October 2009.

Interview Details – They asked fairly general questions. They asked what your top three skills are, what was your best/worst job experience, name a time when you had to think on your feet, etc. They then asked questions about your resume, explain what you did for a certain job, how it helped, and how it is related to the job field.

Interview Question – Tell me about a boss you did not get along with or didn't like and how you handled that situation.   Answer Question
