    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at BKD in October 2014.

    Interview

    Started with an on-campus interview. Informal interview that consisted of your typical questions regarding your previous experiences and leadership qualities. Go in relaxed since chances are the BKD employee you are talking to is very friendly and wants you to not be nervous as well. Next step was an office visit where you interview with 2 partners or directors, and also go through some presentations telling you more about BKD. My offer came the day after my visit.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a little about yourself   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Brought up any questions or concerns that I had. Personally asked about PTO since I have a wedding coming up, and they were very much willing to work with you. Don't be afraid to ask the hard questions if you have any. If you were offered, they like you and want you to work with them. They will be willing to negotiate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BKD (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Recruiting is typically completed through an on campus interviewing process and then a second round of interviews at the office to which you'll be assigned. The initial interviews are very laid back and the recruiter is very knowledgeable and extremely down to earth. They do not employees the "STAR" process (ie. Tell me a time when...} but the questions are more aimed at who you are and if you'll be a good fit with the firm. They are very aware that training for audit is on the job and not just something you learn in college. If you are successful with the first round of interviews, you will be asked to come for an office visit. Nearly everyone who is invited for an office visit will be extended an offer, unless you rub the partners the wrong way. You will meet with three partners or senior managers the day of the office visit. Indianapolis the officer visit is a great experience. They ask you to come into town the afternoon on the day before your interviews, there will be an event (typically a private tour of Lucas Oil Stadium) and then a dinner with many of the partners from the office. After dinner the staff and seniors will take you out for another event, typically something fun with drinks. The next day is interview day and if you get an offer, it will be in your hand before you leave for the day. If I remember correctly there is personality test as well at one of the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • They don't focus on technical expertise type questions or as noted above on STAR questions. Much of the focus is on your resume, so be sure it is in top form. This is a firm that wants to utilize your past experiences and involvements to determine what kind of employee you will be.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    This is your first job so there is little negotiation. Top recruit will get a signing bonus which they call a "education bonus".

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BKD (Houston, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Management and Partners are very polite, overall BKD gives off a good vibe. I've researched the company and it appears the biggest CON is that you have to work extremely hard, though isn't this to be expected in any position? Should anything less be expected? I believe this is a PRO, staying busy/working hard allows for personal growth on many level, this is surely a PRO in my opinion. I understand that I am just an outsider looking in, but my first impression is that BKD would make a great employer and has a lot to offer those willing to work hard for a living.
