    Interview

    I interviewed for the business consultant position. The first round was a behavioral on campus interview that was very conversational. Nothing technical or too difficult. The second round was at their office in Chicago. Again, the interviews were very relaxed and conversational. Nothing tricky or difficult.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Charlotte, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was a recruited through my campus.

    I dropped my resume and was selected for an interview. The night before my interview GT held a social and I was able to meet my interviewer. The next day I was able to walk into my interview already knowing the man across the table and had more of a conversation and overview of GT culture and opportunities.
    I was then invited to an office visit. Again, there was a social the night before and I was able to interact with other GT advisory associates, managers, and partners. The next day I was given a tour of the office and had 3 more interviews.

    Interview

    1st round interview on campus that went alright. The manager that interviewed me did not seem like I was the right fit for the role and kept talking about switching me to another practice, which she ended up doing. The process was also extremely drawn out and I was left in the dark. I had to follow-up with the recruiter (who is an angel by the way, shout out to her!) multiple times until I was told that I did not advance to the final round.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    30 minute one-on-one interview at my school, then was asked back to Grant Thornton for a second interview process. I met with three other senior associates for three separate 30-minute interviews. We sat in a conference room with other applicants and a few senior associates if we had a gap in between interviews. I got there at 9am, then had to wait 2 hours before my next 2 interviews, which were back to back. The associates sitting with us in the conference room asked us some interviews "off the record" but it was clear that answers were important.

    After speaking to recruiters at the my school's career fair, I applied to the Advisory Associate's position through my schools career website.

The process itself consisted of 2 back-to-back, half hour interviews. One was with a senior manager and the other was with a manager. There were specific questions about experiences on my resume as well as behavioral interview questions.
