    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Aronson (Rockville, MD) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening, followed by a Skype interview, concluding with a series of interviews in person on site. In person interviews were conducted on a "interview day" with a bunch of other candidates. I got to meet managers, associates, partners, and HR personnel.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aronson (Rockville, MD) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career website. Someone from HR will call to screen, ask why Aronson, why a regional versus big four, other basic questions. If you do well, you'll do a Skype interview with a manager - more basic behavioral questions. After that (if you do well) is an office tour with 3 interviews - again more basic behavioral stuff. They are very open to questions. By my last interview, I had been milked dry of any questions I could've asked.

    They were very flexible with my other offers in terms of timeline. Competitive salary and benefits. Loved the office, the people, and general atmosphere.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aronson.

    Interview

    After a phone interview I was invited for an office interview with 3-4 people back-to-back. Most of the people asked me basic behavioral questions but one guy asked me to do a few journal entries. I felt pretty good about the interview and the HR guy told me they would make a decision the next week. I haven't heard back from then since (now 2 months later). It was highly unprofessional and discourteous of them not to tell me their decision.

    Interview Questions

    Internship Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The entire process was extremely smooth. There is a lot you will have to go through, filling out questionnaires, essay questions, application, phone interview and then an interview with three of their employees. I had class and they were able to accomodate a skype interview so that I would not have to miss important classes. Every person I have interacted with was extremely helpful and friendly. Response time was very quick as well, I am glad I had gotten to know this company better.

    Very effective, only had two phone interviews since I was not close to Rockville. Recruiters were nice and gave more of a behavioral interview. Heard back fairly quickly in regards to movement forward, which I was given.

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard, and the people I spoke with were friendly. I was given an office tour, and the overall environment seemed nice. There is free parking. However, the recruiter repeatedly asked for my salary history despite me declining to share. This was disrespectful and intrusive. It was too obvious that they were aiming to make the lowest possible offer candidates would be willing to accept.
