Interview Details – On campus, the review process begins at the career fair, so first impressions matter. GPA and relevant experience are very important factors. We are also looking at personality and whether or not you know what Risk Assurance actually does (we like people who know what they want to do in their life). After the career fair, there are on the on-campus behavioral interview, followed by offer to on-site interview. If you do the on-site interview, know that you will be judged during your pre-interview dinner and by your host when you arrive - so always remain focused. The on-site interview is behavioral with managers, directors and a partner. Know that if you make it that far, they know your smart - they want to test your character and behavior.
Interview Question – During these interviews, I never saw any questions about technical skills or knowledge. If you make it to the interview, they know you meet the technical qualification. What distinguishes one big four company to another is its people. So in addition to being smart, you need to be personable and able to communicate comfortably in stressful moments. Some of the partners like to ask random questions about failures or difficulties you encountered to gauge how you work under pressure. Aside from that, its fairly routine. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Risk Assurance is accept/reject. At the time there was no negotiation phase.

Interview Details – First started out with getting through the screening and getting a first round interview on campus. The day before the interview they have a pre-night session which in my opinion is better than the pre-night of other Big 4's. The first round interview was very basic and conversational (go through resume, basic behavioral questions). Heard back 4 business days later to invite me to office visit. Took 3 business days after office visit to get offer.
