    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CliftonLarsonAllen (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me and I expressed interest given the type of job and the salary range. I needed to fill out a lengthy on line application and take three subject matter tests which each took about an hours. I was invited to interview in person and spoke to two individuals at the first visit. I was then invited to come for a second round. All interviewees were very professional and answered all my questions. About 1.5 weeks later, the recruiter called and made a job offer. The salary was on the lowest end of the range quoted. I declined based on the salary and they came back with a small amount more, but not enough to entice me. Besides salary, I couldn't tell who my supervisor would be, and apparently, there are no supervisors. Everyone gets a coach.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CliftonLarsonAllen (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    On campus interview was a 30 minute interview, mostly behavioral. Pretty basic.
    Second round in-office was 4 30 minute interviews + lunch with staff. These interviews were also behavioral, but each had a different focus (leadership, time-management, involvement, future). I felt the interviews went really well, but sadly I received a decline email about 1.5 weeks later. I am not sure were I misstepped. As a note, I am international and would need sponsorship for work visa.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CliftonLarsonAllen (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Met with two Clifton employees separately. After a few minutes of getting to know each other the interviewer asked me some routine questions and then asked more specifically about my work experiences and goals. The second interviewer was much more personable. We spent more time talking about what we had in common and, as far as my work experience, my familiarity with SAS and other computer programs like Excel and how I felt about making presentations in front of groups and interacting with customers. I told her about my experience as a waiter but I didn't think this impressed her.

    Interview Process Was Horrible!! Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CliftonLarsonAllen (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 1 manager that told me the incorrect PTO and didn't find out until later that it was less PTO. I must say I was dissappointed with that. Then I was told I had to market myself after I was verbally hired to even get a client. They send me out to a client and I was not even paid for it. I thought what did I get myself into with this company? The marketing didn't go well because I was stressed out thinking about what a terrible place that I just committed to. The job never transpired and I was sort of glad. I was lied to on several occasions by managers. The hiring manager told me that they had 3 jobs for me and possibly more. They didn't have one. I took another job. I'm smarter than that to work for this group of people.

    Reasons for Declining

    Liars. They said they had clients and they didn't have nothing concrete. The clients were only potential. Nothing was guaranteed.
