    Interview

    There was nothing too unexpected. Most of the interview was somewhat more conversational than a question and answer type of interview. Within two weeks (about a week an a half), was invited to a second round interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BDO USA (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    In the Philadelphia office, the whole process took about a month. First round interviews were on campus. Second round was in office. They connected us within two weeks of our offers. Behavioral questions, very relaxed, regular interviews. There was a panel so you could ask different ranks of employees questions. They took us all out to lunch afterward. Great people, nice office.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BDO USA (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Everyone was really nice and friendly and just seemed to want to get to know you as opposed to just a bunch of behavioral or technical questions. Being yourself and having prepared interview answers that you know helps a lot. Also, try and find something in common between you and your interviewer or an interesting fact that you can tell them so they remember you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BDO USA.

    Interview

    They call you first, then a phone interview. I personally had to wait 45 minutes to realize the recruiter wasn't going to call me. I then called her and she said she had to make it short because she was running late. I have no experience with the firm, but I figure it says a lot about how the firm treats their employees.
