    Audit Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Plante Moran in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus. Went to the office 2-3 weeks later. Interviewed with a partner, an HR person, and a manager. Nothing difficult. The chicago office is really nice and they are renovating it even more. It was much nicer than some of the big 4 firms I have seen (E&Y and PwC).

    Reasons for Declining

    I have not technically declined yet. But I have 2 other offers and 2 more office visits coming up. But they are not on the top of my list right now. It has nothing to do with the firm. Plante is a great place and the people are really exceptional. But for me, it is my long term goals. I want to work for a fortune 100 corporation and Plante is not the right place to start your career when that's where you want to end up.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Plante Moran.

    Interview Details

    Included a career fair, then online application. Before first interview they held a pre interview dinner that you should definitely go to for networking purposes. The first interview was very relaxed but involved some behavioral questions. 2nd round interviews were much more casual, with two of the three interviews being basically conversations. The other one involved just a couple behavioral questions. All interviews lasted roughly 35-40 minutes.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Plante Moran in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR via a referral. HR interviewed first for qualifications and basic salary review. then met with 3 members of senior management in 1 hour blocks. Process was efficient, people were very personable. No set script or set of questions, mostly a conversation that centered in cultural fit (a big consideration for them), qualifications, and some " what would you do" type scenarios.

    I understood that personality tests would follow, but did not progress to that step.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing particularly difficult in the questions. Again, very much geared towards my approach to work.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Plante Moran.

    Interview Details

    First, I had an on-campus interview with a recruiter. This interview was behavioral-based. They did not offer me an internship at that point, but invited me to participate in their "Challenge" Summer Leadership program, which was a great experience. Plante Moran contacted me about a week following the event to schedule an office interview. The office visit was more laid-back and conversational than the on-campus interview. I met with the managing partner and two managers. I also went out to lunch with two staff members. I was contacted a few days later with the internship offer.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Plante Moran in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through the career fair at my school. Initially, the firm wasn't on my radar and I thought they had no interest in me. However, a few weeks later, I received an email requesting me to set up an interview time. When I arrived at the on-campus interview, I met with two current entry-level staff members. They were very nice and kept me at ease about the initial interview that was to come. I proceeded to the initial interview were I was asked basic behavioral questions.

     I was later offered a second interview at the Plante Moran campus. When I arrived, I was brought into a conference room with other candidates. We met with our "buddy" for the day. The firm managing partner gave a nice welcoming speech and we were off to our interviews. I met with two senior staff members and a partner. The senior members seemed to be very focused on behavior based questions although I don't believe I was asked more than 4 per person. The partner was more focused on getting to know me personally.

    After my three interviews, my buddy for the day took me to lunch at the Skyline Club. It was a very nice lunch and the staff told us what they thought about the firm. It was a really honest depiction of life at the firm. The lunch featured about 60 people, 30 current staff and 30 candidates interviewing for many positions throughout. All the staff were under one year in experience. After lunch, we headed out and awaited our calls.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Plante Moran.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then a couple weeks later sent a message to a partner in the department expressing my interest. Applied for another position online and got a call a week or two later. Recruiter was very helpful and positive. After first interview, recruiter called and explained there were multiple positions that they were considering me for and genuninly wanted to guide me towards the better fit for a second interview. Process was very timely. I started 2 months after the first call.

    All interviews had 2-3 people in them, a staff, associate and partner. There is also an assessment, not hard.

    The questions were typical, and more of a conversation, they are not trying to put a lot of pressure on you, and there are no cases.
