    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Eide Bailly (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    when i was in the interview they wanted to see if i would fit in to their culture. It was more a get to know you type of questions a few scenarios on what would you do? They know that you are a student and that you might not have a lot of experience so they go along with what you know and build from there. They are looking for people who would excel if they were left alone to do a job and for someone that could find an answer without having to be micro managed in order to make sure they get it done.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Eide Bailly (Boise, ID) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was pretty casual and conversational. It was a one on one interview and none of the questions were difficult. During the second round interview, I met with HR to go over the benefits package and then was taken over to the panel interview. The second interview was a panel of three consisting of partners and managers. They were all very nice and the questions were typical. Afterwards I was given a tour of their office and was invited out for a social night.

    In total, from the application to offer acceptance, the entire process has taken 5 1/2 weeks. The first interview was on a Monday and I was notified of the second interview by Friday that same week.
    After the second round and the social night, I was contacted the following day about an offer and given a week to consider the decision.

    After speaking with a former instructor, I became aware that first year hires are not normally given the opportunity to negotiate salary, nor are they expected to negotiate. I went ahead and accepted the 48,000 base salary, which is really great in the Boise area for a first year hire with no real experience. However, my instructor had mentioned that the law is changing for 2017 that says that professionals paid less than 47,000 must be paid for overtime which is why the offer is 48,000 with no overtime pay. Otherwise the base salary would be around 42,000.

    Anyway, from my impression, this firm seems like a great place to work.

    Best of luck to those reading this and preparing for interviews with Eide Bailey. :)

    Tax Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eide Bailly (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They were very nice and pleasant to talk to and the process was fairly routine. A couple of questions I wasn't totally prepared for, but then I haven't done very many high level interviews (phone screen.) My lack of a positive experience is that the interviewer insisted that she would get back to me in a day or two (after I asked her about the hiring process) and tell me if I was going on to the next level. After over a week of nothing I emailed her and got the reply that they had decided to continue with some others. I'm worried about missing their reply and they could care less. However, I was probably naive to believe that they would call when they said they would because I think I will be back with this same review for another company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Eide Bailly.

    Interview

    There was an on-campus interview, a meet and greet night, and then in office interviews one on one with 3 partners/managers and the administrative person. They would sometimes ask questions from the paper but for the most part it was very conversational. The only negative was how long it took for them to get back about an offer.
