    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Alexandria, VA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed right out of college. Behavioral, technical, and happy hour interview. Don't be fooled, the happy hour is an interview. Partners and other interviewers were fairly casual, and made me feel at ease. Relative to big four interviews, Grant Thornton's was much less nerve wracking. I did not feel like I was being challenged.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Not overly difficult. If you've been selected to interview you know that you at least meet the strict requirements for employment. Usually the interview consists of three separate interviews with manager to partner level employees at the firm. They ask general questions provided by human resources and are free to mix in questions of their own. Overall, the interview process was daunting at first, but ended up being rather easy.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Alexandria, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, interviewed on client site a week later, and was hired the next day. More often than not though, prospective employees would be brought to GT corporate first to have a face to face.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Normally a recruiter will contact you. Referral is the best way. The interview process entails a meeting with a Manager and a Partner. The interview process can take up to 2 hours. Grant Thornton looks for motivated individuals with the right attitude. As long as you can display those qualities, the skillset and past experience can be worked with the recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Will sometimes ask you a question in regards to particular skills and experience that you might not have experience in. They want to see how confident you are in answering the question and your honesty. Not knowing is not a negative.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    All negotiations are dealt through the recruiter. Although they compensate well for your experience, they will not budge too much on there final offer.

    Interview

    Great experience during the interview. The interviewer was great and really knew a lot about the company. They also provided real on-the-job examples of experiences with clients and kept open communication throughout the process. The only con was that I did not get the opportunity for salary negotiation.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Rosslyn, VA).

    Interview

    My process is much longer than the usual ones. I applied for a position maybe last year and received a call from a recruiter but that's where it ended.

    They kept my resume on file and earlier this year I applied for another job. I spoke to a recruiter on the phone and 2-3 managers as well. I was then called to meet a manager in person which went well. About 3 weeks later, I received an offer and was extremely happy :-)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Met with two managers who were seemingly pulled out of the closest offices...asked very boilerplate questions, and I have not seen them since. At the time, there was no specific project for me to roll on to.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Unable to negotiate, even though I had other offers.
