    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BDO USA (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my university and through their online application. Within about a week after applying I was granted an on campus interview, which was 30 minutes. The on campus interview was with a partner. Most of the questions asked were regarding my resume and accomplishments. I was also asked about my grades in my accounting classes. About a week or to later I was granted an office interview. The interview was a couple of beginning with lunch, then an office tour, then a panel where current employees talked about their experiences and candidates asked questions, then finally two separate interviews lasting about 30 minutes each. These interviews were with partners and managers. My interviews didn't feel like interviews at all. They were more like conversations. These interviews are to make sure that you're a good fit for the firm and that the firm is a good fit for you. Nothing scary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at BDO USA (Seattle, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Interviews with local partners and then senior regional partner if available. Everyone appeared very unprepared with one interviewer appearing to almost fall asleep. Turns out the poor interview process should have been a red flag not to accept the job.

    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.
