    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midland, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midland, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Weaver in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I gave my resume to Weaver at our university job fair in September an email about 4 weeks later for scheduling a phone interview. I conducted a phone interview which was really simple. The questions were mostly about my future plans, when I plan to graduate,and when I plan to sit for the CPA exam. It didn't even really feel like a screening/interview she talked to me like I was one of her besties. She told me I would hear something within a week of the call regarding an in office interview, unfortunately I didn't hear back from Weaver until about 2 and a half weeks later. I ended up calling Weaver and they informed me that they would like to schedule me for an office interview. After I called them they were very proactive on making sure I was taken care of. The in office interview was interesting, I was supposed to interview with 3 different individuals but ended up being interviewed by associate managers. They asked me just questions about my resume and future plans once again, nothing out of the ordinary. I wasn't sure if I was going to get an offer since one of my friends that had interviewed there earlier that day knew one of the partners, but thankfully they offered me the internship . I'm set to start my internship spring of 2015. It would be nice to intern at a Big 4 firm but I live in the Permian Basin and they are the largest firm here by far, so I'm excited for the opportunity. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality at the firm. I hope this helps whoever is reading this.

    Interview Questions
    • I wasn't asked any difficult questions. My friends was asked questions about financial accounting and tax. I have a fairly decent solid resume with 2 other internships at leading companies in the energy industry, so I'm guessing that might be why I wasn't asked those questions. That's my guess.   Answer Question

    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Weaver.

    Interview Details

    They usually do two interviews. The second interview is in-office and you meet with 3 or 4 Weaver associates/managers/partners. Everyone is very nice and they even give you lunch afterwards. However, compared to other firms, the pay is lower (around 50k coming out of college) and the benefits are not that great. (no PPO health insurance) But I do hear that the work-life balance is much better at Weaver compared to other firms so it really depends on what you are looking for.

    Audit Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Weaver in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume through my school's job portal, and did about a thirty minute interview, including questions I asked the recruiter. The recruiter was fairly laid back and personable. Although I didn't get an offer, the interview process was not uncomfortable. It was about a month from the time I submitted my resume until the actual interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty standard -- "How do you think the skills you've developed will contribute to your success at Weaver?", etc. Basically, they want to know how well you will fit in with the culture (which my recruiter called a "good old boy's network," although that means different things to different people), and how you can contribute to the firm.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Weaver in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Weaver contacted me after meeting them at a job fair. Everything was fairly routine. I was flown to Dallas to interview. The questions were normal and consisted of "What do you know about Tax Accounting?". Then at the end they had a trick question, "How many ridges are on a quarter?". Most everyone knows the answer is I have know idea. I was flown home and then contacted a few different times, then received an offer, but declined to a better offer.
