    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clark Schaefer Hackett.

    Interview

    Interview was very laid back and conversational, all of the people that were there (the principle shareholder, a couple managers, and staff I and II's) already had seen my resume and so the interview seemed to be more about getting a feel of me as a person rather than trying to assess if I was intelligent/hardworking/dedicated enough to work there (the resume had already spoken to that).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Staff Accountant I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clark Schaefer Hackett (Columbus, OH) in July 2013.

    Interview

    This was the most relaxed and laid back (yet still professional) interview I have ever been on. Met with several employees, two seniors, two managers, a staff II, and a shareholder before getting the offer. Two in-office interviews before getting the offer. I felt that they asked relevant questions and nothing too off the wall, which was extremely refreshing. I could tell just by the way the interviews had gone that the work culture and overall atmosphere of the firm was very upbeat. Most of the questions were very conversational and natural which really allowed me to be myself and not have to think of a rehearsed answer. Overall, I had a really great feeling about the firm and I am glad that I accepted the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • When you're under a lot of pressure and tight deadlines, how do you manage your stress level?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not feel a need to negotiate because I was given an extremely competitive base salary. Employees are definitely fairly compensated.

    Tax Senior Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Clark Schaefer Hackett (Columbus, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy going from the recruiter to my morning filled with back to back interviews. Everyone was so nice and they really made me feel welcomed. I haven't interviewed in a long time so I was nervous but I didn't need to be because the interviewers were all very down to earth and didn't try to trick me up with any strange questions. The company recruiter is probably the nicest recruiter I've ever dealt with and that was very refreshing!

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't get a whole lot of technical questions (which was nice bc I prepared like I needed to retake the CPA exam). One that I remember is: What accounts do I focus on when preparing financials or a tax return.   1 Answer
