    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Started with phone screens with HR, followed by an informal meeting with a team lead, which resulted in an in-person. Met and interviewed (for a half day) with multiple team members, including leadership, to discuss my background and why I would be a good fit.

    It was one 30 minute interview with a Senior Staff member. It was very conversation oriented and questions were not too technical. They look for you to have a general understanding of client based work and how things are done on the consultant side.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath.

    Interview

    Two back to back interviews with tax partners, each was about 30 minutes. The first interview was mainly the tax partner asking me questions off my resume. Some questions included what was my favorite/least favorite course and why, why tax, questions about the accounting firm I had interned at, why my GPA was low, etc. Second interview consisted just of the tax partner telling me that it was my time to basically interview him. Overall, definitely enjoyed the environment that Crowe provided, as well as the people there. I had attended a social earlier that week as well and everyone was just extremely personable and approachable. Unfortunately I was looking for a full time offer and they would only offer me an internship so I had to deny.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Crowe Horwath (Tampa, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    On campus interview after career fair. I did two 30 minute interviews. Conversational type interview. Asked to explain things on my resume. After the interview I never heard back. I emailed them thank yous and follow ups but got nothing but crickets. I thought that was unprofessional. I really liked Crowe and they were my first choice but not hearing anything, one way or the other, was very off putting. I was at least expecting a canned "thank you but we have went with other candidates" email. You are a professional firm dealing with professionals, please act that way.
