    Proposal Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springfield, MO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BKD (Springfield, MO).

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions. Asked about prior experience and how it related to position. It was relatively standard, but then there was no follow up. I reached out and was send an email by the recruiter which came across as dismissive. It left a bad taste in my mouth.

    While our processes differ a bit from office to office, there is a shared theme of seeking culture fit. It must have been a competitive group - keep an eye out for future openings!

    Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oak Brook, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BKD (Oak Brook, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round interview occurred on-campus. Second round was at their Chicago headquarters in Oak Brook. Easy interview and conversational. BKD recently acquired Wolf & Co. which is now their Chicago office. Through talks with partners I got the impression that the merger has not gone smoothly and their seems to be a struggle for an identity. Process was unorganized and communication was lacking.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at BKD (Dallas, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Process took about 1 week and I applied through a recruiter. There was about 5 people in the interview asking me questions. It was mostly behavoral questions onsite and mostly technical questions on the phone. Any full stack developer can pass the phone screening but the onsite behavoral question onsite are much more challenging. make sure you study the company before you go the the onsite interview. The onsite interview lasted about 90 minutes. It seemed like they already had there mind made up on another candidate. I had a long lecture on integrity, values and work ethics that came out of there employee manual. They mentioned they want their software developers to participate in meetings. I am guessing past employees refused to participate in meetings. It seemed thay wanted someone that is extroverted, out going and not shy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BKD (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with BKD on campus after applying online. There were no technical questions, and very few behavioral questions, if any. The interview was mostly conversational, with one of the firm's partner's, and lasted about 30 minutes. Questions were very broad. First, the interviewer told me about their background and then asked about mine, it was purely conversational from there, aside from the obligatory,"Why BKD?"

    Tax Senior Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BKD (Dallas, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had a telephone interview first with the recruiting manager and then with one partner, after which I was invited to an in-person interview. It was a very good interview in terms of my being able to thoroughly vet the opportunity and their being able to get a good handle on my background, experience and skills, and career goals. However, subsequent to the interview, I received neither an offer nor a rejection; they simply went dark, despite a couple of follow ups on my part to the recruiter. This was disappointing on several levels.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BKD.

    Interview

    On-campus interview, lots of behavioral question. It felt like the interviewer kept trying to catch me in a lie, which was off-putting. It's a great company, but I wouldn't want to work there if that is what the culture is like.

    I had a phone interview first, and then they contacted me to come in for an office visit.

The office visit interviews were very conversational, the lunch is also part of the interview, the associates are asked to review you during the lunch.
