    IT Audit Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Chicago, IL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    First round was two 1:1 behavioral interviews. I interviewed with a senior manager and the campus recruiter. It was very simple and some of the questions were asked in both interviews. I got a call back the next day inviting me to a 2nd round interview.

    The 2nd round interview was at the office. It was only 1 interview, but mostly was a conversation about the position. It is a pretty easy process as long as you know your skills and express them.

    Winter Audit Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    On campus interview was two half hour interviewers. Asked really bizarre questions and my interviewer tried to write down everything I was saying. I kind of got turned off by that and started spewing out STAR because I think she was required to write in that format. Got a call a few hours later that invited me to second round. Office visit was 8:30-3pm but I only had one interview with a person that started a few months ago. Some people interviewed with partners and managers but for some reason I didn't. The day started with a presentation for a couple of hours then one interview then lunch then office tour then panel discussion. It was way too long and everyone was way too tired (maybe it was due to the large lunch). Got an offer a couple hours later. Really nice people but the interview process was odd compared to big 4.

    Interview Questions

    • In second round interview, they asked me to rate my excel, word, powerpoint, and access on a scale from 1-5.. really now?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I have another big 4 offer. Offer was very competitive.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Oak Brook, IL) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Received an offer to interview through the career website at school. Went in for the on campus interviews and had 2 behavioral. Invited for an office visit which consisted of a discussion, not really a true interview, and a lot of presentations about the firm. Rather easy and laid back. Was surprised there was no technical interview as every other company I worked for had one. Seemed more focused on whether you would "be fun" to work with rather than your skill level.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. Not school, not background, but you. What makes you you?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Oak Brook, IL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interviews were easy, they need to hire competent people and will ask you to describe skills, experiences, projects, etc. Know your game and you will get through it. I knew more than the technical interviewers, so was actually fun. Background check was extremely thorough, any skeletons in the closet will be found if you aren't professional.

    • My interview was so easy, there was not a difficult or unexpected question although the onsite interview took a full day.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, they had a range with a limit, I asked for the limit and got it.
