    Summer Leadership Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (Tucson, AZ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed by a partner, very casual, no behavioral question, just trying to know you.

    They seriously treat this externship program as 1st round of the long term hiring process so they want to see your willingness to relocate to the Bay Area and work for them.

    Accounting Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was only asked about why did I choose accounting, during the interview. The Interviewer had no other questions, therefore I tried to engage her in a conversation to show that I was interested in Frank,Rimerman + Co. LLP. There were many questions I asked about the companies objectives, expectation of newly hires, and their client base.
    I found it highly suspicious that I was emailed by 2 other recruiters to set up to meet with one recruiter that never contacted me.

    Application

    I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (Santa Barbara, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Much more conversational than I expected, which I enjoyed. The interviewer, a campus recruiter, just wanted to get to know you better, which made it much more relaxing. No behavioral questions or any of that typical interview routine stuff. From application submission to hearing back, the entire process took a little more than two weeks.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP.

    Interview

    Pretty informal and easier than most interviews. Very low-stress and actually quite enjoyable. From what I have heard, all the interviewers are pretty relaxed. The leadership program itself was better than most - less focused on the firm itself and more focused on the participants as individuals. Less stiff than the big 4.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was not at all impressed. I believe that it truly has to do with the person in HR who interviewed me. It's too bad that talented candidates aren't being given a fair chance because of the idiotic gate keeperes.

    My interviewer was quite rude. My time was scheduled for 30 minutes but she spent only 15 minutes with me. I got the overwhelming impression that candidates were already pre-selected and I was there only out of formality. She had my resume in front of her and it seemed as though she was looking at it for the first time. Her questions (see below) were terrible. After only a couple of moronic questions she asked me if I had any questions for her.

    I tried to show off my knowledge of the company by incorporating my research into questions to get to know her genuine interest with the firm. She was not pleased. She actually responded very rudely telling me that she doesn't work in accounting and she is "just in HR". Geeze, I know that! I was trying to be polite, seeing as how you didn't do your job to come up with any real questions to ask me!!!!!

    I still followed protocol and sent her a follow-up thank you message, to which I received a very disingenuine and impersonal we-don't-want-you reply, which actually stated that the process was "fair" [oh, the irony!].

    Interview Questions

    • 1. What is this [referring to my degree]?
      2. How did you get this job? It sounds easy. [yes, that truly is what was said]
