Audit Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BDO USA (Miami, FL) in March 2017.

Interview

I was sent an email saying I was selected for an interview in two weeks. No phone calls. I was sent another email with details needed four days before interview. I had to book a flight and hotel for this interview so I found it weird that I wouldn't at least get a phone call or some personable contact. Everything felt a little unprofessional. After the group lunch, I did very well on the three conversational interviews. They said we would know the outcome in two weeks, that didnt happen. A few weeks later after playing phone tag with a partner who didnt interview me said that the job was competitive and because I hadn't done a public accounting internship I wasn't what they were looking for, but he would see if another location would take me. I felt insulted and strung along. I wonder why they made me travel so far if they could easily see on my resume I didn't have the experience they were looking for and no matter how well I interviewed I wasnt getting an offer.
 Overall, very unprofessional and I'm glad I don't work there, just sorry I traveled for it.

    I got an email from HR to schedule a time to do a phone interview. It took 15 minutes. Easy question, what is your major strength? What is your weakness? Tell me about your background. Describe a time you have hard to face in group. What do you know about the company? Then, I got the chance to schedule second interview in main office.

    For students to even get an interview, they must attend networking events throughout the recruiting season. This will increase the chance to get an interview. First round of interviews is at your school. One on one, mostly behavioral questions. Second round is at the office and consist of 4 separate interviews with managers and partners.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BDO USA (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was an on campus interview with one of the audit seniors for 20 mins. The audit senior asked few questions related to my personal interests instead of my past work experiences. Felt like they want to learn what you would do outside of work just like your college application essay.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BDO USA (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Simple conversation
    Nothing much around 30 minutes, asking questions instead of answering.
    Not a traditional behavior interview you would expect, more of a relaxed conversation.
    No hard questions, but you need to prepare for it.

    Very friendly and welcoming. Informal questioning. They ask what type of situation you have been in and what you did.
