    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Andersen Tax (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR to actually come into the office for pre screen interview rather than conduct over the phone. I met with a manager who was nice. Went over my resume and asked a few questions. Then met with the HR contact who had emailed me. She had her mind made up when she walked into the room so there really wasn't much I could do to leave her with a positive impression of me. Was contacted a week later by the same HR contact that They decided not to move forward. Not disappointed as the position really wasn't a god fit. Would have preferred to just have done the pre screen over the phone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Andersen Tax (McLean, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied via college job search engine after the job fair where I met the company representative. I found out that company held on campus interviews. I applied to interview on the campus. After that I was invited and attended back to back in office interview with 4 people on the recruiting day. Interviewers were managers and above (directors and managing directors). Also I attended a panel Q&A with a group of other interviewees. I thought that company is in need of new hires and the ratio of offers should be reasonably high.

    A senior managing director from WTAS came to my University to speak to us about potentially working for his firm. I spoke with him after the info session and e-mailed him later that day.
