Easy Interview

Application

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 college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Williamsburg, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back. I scheduled the interview through campus recruiting, and I had two 30-minute interviews. Both interviewers really tried to make the process more conversational, and the questions were mostly behavioral. They ask about your interests, why you think you suit the position, etc. They were very friendly and courteous, and all of the employees seemed to have good relationships with one another.

    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

    Unable to negotiate, even though I had other offers.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    For the Associate level, Grant Thornton generally hires through on campus recruiting. However, it is possible to meet hiring managers in different service lines by pursuing networking events such as professional organizations.

    Interview Questions

    • My interview process had several fit questions one would expect such as: strength and weakness; provide an example of when you went over and beyond on a project; please discuss a time when you had to overcome diversity to accomplish your goal; what is your greatest accomplishment, and discuss; discuss any team projects you have (ties into other questions); On this team project, how did you manage someone who did not complete their assignment   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had two on campus interviews before I received an offer. Both were behavioral. They were focused on how well you worked in teams and the candidates particular interest. I was then flown out to the home office to met managers and associates and others who recently received offers. The culture was warm and vibrant. Grant Thornton seemed like a good place to work. I was sold after the office visit. I later accepted the offer a week later.

    Interview

    Campus interview which was all behavioral, then in the office for 3 thirty minute grill sessions from two managers and the practice partner. Pretty standard stuff, just a resume run through, career motivations, what you think you can do to add value to client work, etc. No business case or brain teasers.

    Negotiation

    No real wiggle room without another offer in hand

    Interview

    First I had an on campus 1:1, then on site for 3 1:1's. Everyone was very nice, and focused mostly on interpersonal skills, with a bit of technical questioning. The offer was made promptly after the interview cycle, within a week or so. Plenty of transparency throughout.
