    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cherry Bekaert (Raleigh, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible and Unprofessional. My interviewer started off the interview by telling me, it would be cut short. He was also driving, so the service on his end was horrible. He expressed that due to the fairness of the interview process we should rescheduale. The interviewer only told me about the position, did not ask my any questions regarding my experience before the connect fell through. The day before the rescheduled interview, I received an email that stated that based on the interview, even though there wasn't much clarity, the interviewer learned enough about me to determine that he wanted to proceed with other candidates. To me, this was extremely unprofessional especially since I was not asked any questions regarding my experience. I felt I was not given a chance to give an interview. It was disappointing, that potential candidates are treated the way they are. I will not be applying for any more positions in this company.

    Senior Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cherry Bekaert (Raleigh, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position on LinkedIn and the same week had an initial phone interview with a recruiter. It was a standard interview asking about experience, salary requirements, etc. I then had a second phone interview with who would have been my supervisor 2 weeks later. That was less of an interview and more of an explanation of the position. I was selected for a formal in-person interview. The recruiter followed up with an agenda which included 5 separate interviews, each lasting 30 minutes. The agenda had changed the day before the interview but I was not supplied with the new agenda. I ended up interviewing with 6 separate people, 3 of which were attorneys, and it went very well. I was shown around office, offered drinks and snacks, explained about benefits, and even introduced to members of the team around the office. Overall a great interview experience, disappointed I didn't receive an offer but it was good practice I suppose. I hope the person they selected works out for them.

    Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cherry Bekaert (Tampa, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through school after job fair. Was selected for the on campus interviews. Did a night before meet and greet at a local bar/restaurant. Interviewed with a partner and manager at the same time. Nothing too complicated. Then went to the in office interviews. Three 30 min interviews. Two partners and one manager. Some behavioral questions, mostly talking about my resume. Then out to lunch with some staff. I did not get an offer. My thought is it was because of my age and that I have children. I am much older than the other candidates. They have a very young staff and it felt sort of like a frat house culture. They were very professional but acted young. All of the firms activities seem to revolve around alcohol. Again, not inappropriate just not what I was looking for. They say they are looking for leadership experience, just not too much experience for an intern. If you're a young guy who likes beer, this is the firm for you.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cherry Bekaert.

    Interview

    After my summer internship, I was offered a full time job one week after end of my internship, starting next year. The process for internship interview was very straightforward, I had one on campus interview, then was called up for an office visit. They were very flexible about which location I could go to, which was nice. The office visit consisted of an overnight stay - dinner, then breakfast next day, then 3 interviews (partner, senior manager, senior), then a lunch before leaving. I had a host the whole time that showed me where to go and answered general questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cherry Bekaert (Richmond, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Ugh. An agonizing hour of behavioral questions, most of which made me wonder "What does this have to do with anything?" I can't wait for this trend to end and interviews once again focus on the actual job.

    I was so relieved when it ended that I found myself hoping they wouldn't contact me again. They didn't.
