    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straightforward. Two back-to-back 30 minute interviewers on campus. One was conversational and the other was pretty to the script. Both were fairly simple questions and they really to try to stress their casual environment that many millennial employees would prefer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Miami, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I first interviewed on campus. It was a back to back interview, first with a Partner, who asked behavioral questions, and the second with a Senior Manager that felt more like a conversation than an actual interview. Both interviewers were the kindest, and explained to me everything I asked about the firm.
    I got an email on the following week inviting me to the on-site interview at the Fort Lauderdale office. On the day of the interview, they prepared a breakfast buffet and after that there was a presentation with partners, managers, and recruiters. After that, they divide you in groups of 5 to 6. My group stayed listening to the staff and senior staff panel. There is a Q&A where everyone got to participate. We, then, were called for the interviews and my interviewer was a partner who I had a very pleasant conversation with. After that, we took a tour around the office and then, headed to lunch with Crowe's employees, from staff to senior managers.

    Tampa: Had a series of 3 interviews. First one started at 10:45, followed by an office tour & a lunch with the audit staff. Then two more interviews. They didnt ask many questions, except the first interviewer asked why should he hire me. Other than that, they just talked about the company, what they expect of me, and wanted to know if I had any questions for them. Very nice people & audit staff; still waiting for a call back. They said it might take a week. I had the interview Friday and it is Wednesday morning at the moment.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus' career center portal. Later in March, I was contacted about a phone interview with the regional recruiter. In April, I found out I made it to the next stage of the process, which was a lunch interview with staff from the local office along with another candidate. (Someone from the local office called me to arrange that). I didn't hear anything for several weeks about whether I was accepted into the Learn2Lead program. I emailed the recruiter and they got back to me letting me know I hadn't been selected for the program.

    Talking with a recruiter over the phone and then a few weeks later was invited to meet with 3 senior managers in one afternoon.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Austin, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, very relaxed. Asked mostly behavioral questions and was more concerned if I could hold a conversation and had well-phrased responses than technical knowledge of the industry. He/she also valued the knowledge I had about the company and wanted to see that I had done my research and actually valued the company. Overall a pretty positive experience!
