    Interview

    It was awkward and my interviewer was late and seemed uninterested. I never got a call or an email afterwards. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cotton & Co. (Alexandria, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very organized and professional.
    Spoke with the HR staff, Accounting Manager, and Partner during the on-site interview.
    Feedback received in less than two weeks from the interview.
    I didn't get the job, which was disappointing but I have no bitter feelings towards the organization. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and considerate during the process. I've spoken with a few different CPA firms and often they are snobby. The staff at Cotton and Company are refreshinglying down to earth, and most importantly, professional.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cotton & Co. (Alexandria, VA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through the website. Heard back from HR the same day. Discussed my background and scheduled an interview over the phone. Met with staffing partner and manager for first interview at the office a week later. Was very conversational and not much on technical background. The interview went well and the staffing partner was going to consider what project to put me on. Called back for a second interview a few weeks later with managing partner and another manager for same type of interview. Received and accepted the offer about a week later. Very quick and painless process. Cotton requires all employees to have or be able to acquire at least a Secret federal clearance so be prepared to submit a detailed background investigation form covering at least the last 7 years of your life.
