Accounting Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Accountemps (Walnut Creek, CA) in August 2016.

Interview

Lots of job postings that are not available when you finally get to someone live. Seems like a gimmick to get people to give your their resumes. I would also get emails from them saying we have something that starts in two days...are you available? To which I would immediately respond, yes and then they would say that they would keep me posted and I would never hear from them. A complete waste of time.

    Interview

    Relatively simple through Skype. I was contacted about a month after submitting an online application for one of their "made up" positions that they use to accumulate a pool of readily available workers. There was a quick phobe screening and the next day a Skype video interview.

    Interview

    Worse experience ever! First guy called me without introduce himself. He was rude while I tried to ask which company he's calling from, I just want to make sure he is not a scam call. I'm sure normal person wouldn't have a problem explaining who you are when you call someone you do not know. However, this guy just got weirder, got more frustrated, and started to whisper so he can say something mean. I got his name by tricked him to give me his email address, then I call the company to report about this guy. They said this never happened before (oh sure) and set me up with another person for the interview.
    The interview was set for exact date/time. Guess what? The interviewer cancel on me right at the interview time. Just cancel like that. She rescheduled the appointment for a few hours after. She was late and that is the last time I gave this company a chance.

    "No respect, No manner and very unprofessional."

    Interview Questions

    • More of just selling how big their company is. The interviewer just talked like a robot. Didn't really care much about my skills.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accountemps (Oakland, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. The recruiter just asked questions about the work experience listed on my resume. Next I was just asked about how much I was looking to get paid. As an entry level accountant, I said $18-20/hour but was told that realistically it would be somewhere around $15/hour to begin with.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accountemps (Troy, MI) in March 2015.

    It was really easy. You go to the office with your resume or portfolio the will pUT you with a recruiter. The recruiter will the interview you and evaluate you skills. There is also testing involved. But after that is done they call you with an assignment once they find something that matches your skill set and then you interview with the company you will be working for.
