    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.

    Application

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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 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.
