    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Plante Moran.

    Interview

    The interview process began with an on campus job fair where I was informed they only accept applicants with a 3.5/4 gpa. With lower than a 3.5 I was called back for an on campus interview with two interviewers. After that I was called back for an off campus interview at a location about 40 miles away. I went through two interviews and a presentation. I also was given a buddy who I had met at the job fair and I shared many similar experiences with. The day concluded with being taken out to lunch with other applicants and their buddys. I was also generously compensated for travel.

    Interview

    Started by talking to recruiters at a college accounting career fair and then talked to them again at the business wide career fair the next day. Applied on college career resource and got accepted for an on campus interview. The interview was only thirty minutes with two staff accountants asking me behavioral based interview questions. It was not too difficult.

The office visit was long, but ended with food and conversation.
