Audit Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Houston, TX) in September 2008.

Interview

I was greeted by one of the HR assistants and was given an interview schedule for the morning, as I was meeting with one of the partners, a manager, and a senior associate. The interviews were pretty standard, and I was asked about my previous work experience, the types of clients that I'd worked with, industries that I was interested in, and how I preferred to be managed. The interviewers were friendly, and I felt comfortable talking with them.

    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Tampa, FL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    First round was on campus - pleasant and easy. Then a dinner with the partner and staff and other applicants before the second round of interviews in the office. Received an offer pretty quickly from the partner, but he did not take kindly to the fact that I was awaiting other offers. I eventually declined for a better opportunity and was treated extremely rudely by the partner when calling to decline. Glad I didn't join.

    • No difficult questions - just normal HR soft skill questions   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Better opportunities (big 4) and rude, smug partner.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Houston, TX) in November 2010.

    Interview

    This was a very good interview experience. The whole process was neatly done and very professional. Although the company is close to being Big 4, the staff and partners were very friendly and tried to make the interview as comfortable as possible. The only problem is that there's a lot of competition, but that's not the company's problem. It was a very easy going and fun interview. It's a buddy system where you shown around by an employee while the interview process is going on. You are interviewed by 3 people and then go to the lunch with the staff. Afterward, you have an ice cream social back at the end office and have an ending interview with one of the 3 people you spoke with.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Miami, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was through the university and took about 5 to 6 weeks.

    There was an accounting fair where a whole range of accounting firms were present from Big 4 to small, local firms. I met with a managing director and a partner of the firm. They were very nice and I enjoyed their company.

    There were also several events where we met with other professionals of the firm. I had my first round of interviews at the university for about 30 minutes. I met with a manager. He was very professional and we spoke about a variety of topics about myself, my resume, both of our experiences.

    The second round interviews were at the office. We had a pre-interview social. I met with other professionals of the firm, as well. The next day were office interviews and lunch. I had two office interviews, both 30 minutes. I interviewed with a partner and director of the firm. Both of them went very well. It was certainly more relaxed and talking more about myself, my resume, and experiences. After the interviews, we went out to lunch with two professionals of the firm. It was a great experience and learned more about the firm through their experiences. They said that offers would be sent out the following week. However, I received notice of my offer two days after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions. Nothing that is out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate.
