    Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accounting Principals in March 2015.

    Interview

    The initial interview was a one on one discussion with a recruitment manager. They basically ask about your background such as education and work history. They also seek to find out what your interests are so that they can "pair you with the best hiring company". In ending, based on the positions you are interested in, they will let you know if you have to do a proficiency test. In my case this was an excel proficiency test. There is a basic test and an advanced one that is given after. On completion of the tests, they let you know your score.

    Very standard interview process. No questions came as too much of a surprise. It was first a phone interview, followed by an in person. The in person recruiter was very nice and chipper.
