    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very quick turnaround. Had a phone interview with a recruiter by the end of the call received an invitation to interview on site. The interview on site was strictly behavioral and was more like a conversation than an interview. I enjoyed the conversations I had with managing directors and a partner.
