    I interviewed with a partner. He was really nice and made me feel less nervous after a brief self-introduction. He basically went through my resume and asked some basic questions like what grades you got in Immediate acct / how can you apply past experiences to this position. The whole process took less than 30 minutes; I thought I was going to be asked more behavioral questions but no.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at CohnReznick (Fairfax, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was emailed saying that I had an interview with them. I was instructed to fill out their questionnaire (link was provided in the email), and also bring a copy of my transcript and the questionnaire to the interview. The interview was one on one with on of their auditing staff, and was actually pretty relaxed. The questions were pretty basic interview questions like "what was a setback you faced and how did you react to it" or "a specific project that you were successful on, and how did you achieve that success".

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly basic, but the most unexpected was "provide an example outside of school that you were faced with a problem and how did you solve it?" LIke I said they were straightforward questions that didn't really involve any acccounting or business related skills.   Answer Question

    Experienced Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CohnReznick (Bethesda, MD).

    Interview

    initial contact through HR Recruiter on the phone- asked basic questions about resume, what i was looking for in a job, etc.
    interview- 2 partners & 1 manager: fairly straight forward, nothing out of the ordinary, took about 1.5 hours, partners asked very similar questions but in separate interviews. manager asked more technical questions, however it turns out that he was one of the more technical managers. asked a lot about what certifications you are looking to obtain (typical for an accounting/consulting firm)

    partners are easy to talk to and make you comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • one partner had me ask questions the entire time, so be prepared to have a lot of questions, and not just the standard 1-2 that you ask at the end. be prepared to be able to speak on anything on your resume   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiated salary but was tough; i was able to stand firm as i had a job at the time. management did not seem to want to budge on their initial offer which was quite low. have heard from others that they would not budge at all and accepted a low offer
