    Senior Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a role in the NY office, the recruiter was based out of the Wisconsin office. After our interview she said she would get back to me the following week on my status. When I didn't hear from her that next week I sent a follow-up email and received no response. It's okay if I wasn't selected for the position. But to not hear back from the recruiter at all after she said she would get back to me and after I sent a follow-up seems a bit rude; no rejection, no feedback. Glad I don't treat my candidates like that.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting center. Received an email shortly after saying I would be given a phone interview. The phone interview was fairly basic and nothing out of the ordinary was asked. (Why their company, why tax/audit, etc. etc.). A few days later I was told I would need to come down for an in office interview. Interviewed with two partners, and they were very conversational interviews. Heard back a few days later with an offer. Always have many questions prepared to ask the interviewers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (Milwaukee, WI) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was recruited through my university, had an on campus interview and was given an offer two to three days after my interview. I told them that I was unsure and still waiting to hear back from another firm. Baker Tilly then offered to take me out to lunch, give me a tour of their office, etc. Touring their office and meeting with some of the people is what sold me to accept.

    I didn't negotiate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview with a manager discussing the role, what it was about, and how my experiences could be used to help in the position. Also had to discuss knowledge of the role and field. The interview was much better then with other regional firms or firms of similar size. They really care about making sure they have a qualified candidate.
