    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BDO USA.

    Interview

    Applied online and had a phone screening to start the process. After the phone interview, I was invited into the office to speak with two managers. Both managers were very easy to speak to and just wanted to find out about your background and skills. Interviews were conversational and pleasant. About a week and a half later, I received a phone call with a job offer.

    Resume review (submitted online) and then a short on campus interview with someone who worked in a local office.

    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.

    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.
