Internal Audit Consultant Interview

Internal Audit Consultant
Dallas, TX

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in May 2008.

Interview Details – At my school, they basically interview anyone with a GPA greater than 3.25. They have a first round interview and make their cuts in one day, then have second round interviews, both on campus. They make another cut then invite recruits to a site visit. The site visit was another two interviews and a skills/personality test. They give a few presentations and take everyone to a really nice lunch/dinner.

Interview Question – Why would your accounting background give you an edge in consulting?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I received a few offers that were higher or that had signing bonuses. I even scanned some of the offer letters to my recruiter and she did not budge with the offer. I think this happened to me because I go to a school that's not a 'key' school for recruiting.

London, England (UK)

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Protiviti in April 2012.

Interview Details – Due to my location, I had to take a phone interview, rather than meet in person.
2:1 interview with a manager and associate director.

Friendly and easy going competency based interview. Very focused on the firms culture.

Make sure to focus on any internal audit work you have completed. Moving from external to internal audit could be tough.

Make sure to research the 'Protiviti story' and ask some good questions at the end.

Internal Audit Consultant Interview

Internal Audit Consultant

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Protiviti in February 2008.

Interview Details – The interview consisted of a review of my background in Internal Audit and External Audit work. It also consisted of situational questions in which you are asked about an experience, how you handled it, and the outcome. Interviews were done with several individuals at all levels of experience.
The poeple are very good to work with but be ready for long hours and plenty of politics.

Interview Question – Tell me a situtation in which there was conflict and how you handled it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was very little room for negotiation. Salaries and bonuses are set on policies and the company won't go outside of policy unless you interview for a higher position. the salaries are not bad but to get your bonus is difficult.
