    Interview

    Very straight forward interview about past job experience. Prepare to sell yourself as already having experience and not merely as being willing to acquire it. Smart to have CPA or EA designation.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The entire process was drawn out and non-transparent. I applied online. Spoke with the recruiter briefly, who had terrible follow up skills. Then I was scheduled and spoke with one person and then nearly 3 weeks later, I spoke with someone else. The first interviewer was laid back and polite. The 2nd I detected was jealous of my background and saw me as a threat. I emailed the recruiter to follow up and heard radio silence. I then logged into the system and saw i was no longer being considered. Considering I had all the requirements for the role, I am not sure why I even spoke to the 2nd person and not the hiring manager. BDO is not big 4 but they certainly have the same nasty and unethical hiring practices.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BDO USA (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied through our school's career website for their internship spots. Three days after the application deadline, I got a notification that I was chosen to interview for the company. There was a pre-interview dinner with the other interviewees and partners. It was fun and it was just about the partners and students getting comfortable with each other. The interview the next day was in the campus. Both partners were really approachable and helpful. They mostly asked about the things on my resume and based their questions there. Just like other interviews, they are going to ask you if you have questions for them. Make sure you have a couple ones ready. They got back three weeks later through email that they didn't choose me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BDO USA in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and immediately got an e-mail from HR the day after. Had 5 interviews (4 over the phone, 1 face-to-face). The most challenging aspect of the interview was to get schedules aligned and prompt communication. as it seems like most, if not all, of the interviewers were in a transition phase and/or travelling. HR, however, was always friendly and while it was difficult to get in motion, they ultimately were apologetic when they weren't as prompt and they remained transparent when they could. The process spanned over 3 months.

    30 minute interview. Very laid back. We talked about my resume and about BDO. The lady was kind of awkward, but in the end I had a positive experience. I was not a huge fan of the 1 on 1 setting.
