    Tax Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Andersen Tax (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    First I applied online but quickly got a rejection email.

    Then I applied again, but this time had an internal referral send my resume. Within a week I got an email with the Chicago recruiter to set up a phone interview with her.

    Me and the recruiter had a phone interview which lasted about 20 minutes. She forwarded my file to the LA recruiter. The LA recruiter then emailed me a few days later with a time and date to have a phone screening interview with a director in the OC office.

    The phone screening interview with the director lasted about 30 minutes and went well.

    A few days after that the LA recruiter emails me the time and date for my in-person interview. The interview lasted 3 hours. First I was in the conference room with a director, then I had a 40 minute coffee session with two associates, then I returned to the conference room to speak with the managing director.

    My interview was in December around the holidays when a lot of people are out of the office so it took a few weeks before getting my final result.

    The whole process from sending my first application to getting the result was about 3 months long.

    Through the whole process everyone I spoke to was very friendly. They just want to gauge your interest and your ability to handle a tough schedule during the busy seasons (this came up a lot).

    *HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS PREPARED AHEAD OF TIME BECAUSE YOU WILL BE THERE A LONG TIME AND YOU NEED TO HAVE TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT. ESPECIALLY IN THE COFFEE SESSION THEY RELY ON YOU TO ASK THE QUESTIONS AND YOU HAVE TO AVOID AWKWARD SILENCES. EVEN IN THE NORMAL INTERVIEW PART THEY FREQUENTLY JUST SAY: "SO WHAT QUESTIONS DO YOU HAVE?"

    Interview Questions

      -What kind of work environment do you like?
      -How do you handle stressful situations?
      -During the coffee session they expect you to ask most of the questions, which they answer and leads to conversation.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Andersen Tax (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    It was a 2 round interview question. The first round was extremely easy and simple. I was done in 5 minutes. They just asked "tell me about yourself." Gave them my 2 minute pitch and was told that I moved on to my second round. The second round encompasses a 5 hour interview process. We got there and was given a tour of office, lunch, and then interviews with 4 employees of the company: Managing director, 2 Directors, and an Associate. Pretty easy and laid back. Awesome company to work for.
