    Accounting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR in which past work experience was discussed. This was followed by an office interview that had four parts. The office interview you'll have a couple of interviews with various levels within the firm. The first will be with a recruiting/HR person. It's the kind of an interview to help get you in the zone and calm you down. The next will be with a manager or director. They will either be from Tax or Audit. After that you'll have an interview with a partner who will be in Audit or Tax, usually whatever the manager/director wasn't in. Finally you'll have a lunch interview with associates.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Frank, Rimerman +Co., LLP (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career portal. The company approved my resume, cover letter, and transcript and I received notification from the career portal that I had been selected for the on-campus interview.

    The on-campus interview was stress-free. I was held in a waiting room with a second-year associate and made small talk until my interview began. Getting to know one of the employees before my interview helped to alleviate any nervousness I had going into the whole process. The actual interview began with the classic 'tell me about yourself' question and then a quick run-down of my resume. After that, I asked the questions I had prepared and we talked about company history and current operations, clients, and company culture/vision.

    About a week later I received a email from the recruiter saying I had been selected for the on-site office interview. There were no problems scheduling my visit - the firm paid for all of my travel, lodging, and food expenses for the duration of my stay.

    An associate picked me up from the airport, took me to dinner, and then dropped me off at the hotel. In the morning, I was shuttled to the office and interviewed with a senior manager. This interview was a little more formal than the on-campus interview with a few more behavioral questions. Still very conversational in nature.

    I then went to lunch with two second-year associates and another candidate. After lunch I interviewed with a partner and this was the most formal interview, but still maintained a somewhat conversational tone. Nothing beyond behavioral questions and questions about my goals, interests, etc.

    I received my offer via email in the terminal of my home airport.
    Overall a great experience!
