    STS R&D Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BDO USA (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through the website and emailed back for a phone interview coordinated by Campus Recruiter with STS Manager. The manager was 20 minutes late calling and with broken english or poor communication just threw a word salad together and asked if that was ok. Sure. Followed by questions like what did you do with your degree? How come you don't have a job? Why do you want to work for BDO? How do you know about BDO? She was unprepared and didn't prepare questions. Didn't even look at the resume she had. Poorly conducted interview and haven't been this frustrated with the company before.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. Tell me a little more about __ role at ___. How come you applied to BDO? What interest do you have in accounting? What are you career goals? I see you have a degree in ___ what are you doing with your degree now that you're graduated?   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BDO USA.

    Interview

    Resume review (submitted online) and then a short on campus interview with someone who worked in a local office. Basic questions including strengths and weaknesses, behavioral questions and where you see yourself in your career next year, in 5 years, etc. Very casual and the woman who interviewed me was pleasant to talk with.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The application process sucks. BDO hr found me via Linkedin and I was interested in an open position in New York. Then hr gave me NY hr's contact info. I scheduled a phone interview with NY hr. He did not call me on time and the phone call is very casual. I told him my background and he showed interest. But they are not interested in hiring people who need h1b transfer.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied through college campus portal and was invited for on campus interviews with two partners from the audit practice.

    Audit Associate Interview

    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.
