Audit Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in November 2017.

Interview

Met at my school's career fair. Chatted with some of the professionals and eventually got invited to an office visit/ interview. Overall, they were very friendly and it was fairly laid back, probably due to the office being a bit smaller. Usually behavioral questions are asked, but it was really just conversation.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Seamless process from on-campus interview to office visit. Spoke with three individuals - one recruiting, one manager and one partner. All questions were behavioral in nature, and it was much more a conversation than skills assessment to get an idea if you were a good fit with the firm. Was asked to walk through resume during the interview as well.

    • Describe a time you were challenged in a group/team setting, and the resulting solution.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was unorganized. Initially, the process went smooth and I received a call that I had gotten an offer. After a couple of weeks I checked up and still didn't receive it. Recently, GT asked me if I was "still interested" and I said yes and I haven't heard back and that was two weeks ago. Their public sector is ok tho lol

    Interview

    I had the on-campus interview at my university. I was invited back for an interview in their local office. I was later offered the position, and I accepted the offer. It was a very straight forward process from the beginning. The recruiters kept us informed with everything that would take place.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I attended a Meet the Firms event in San Francisco and submitted my resume after getting face time with a recruiter and several associates. I was invited for a first interview and met with a senior manager. I was then invited to a social dinner and all-day office visit interview.
    The social dinner was a great opportunity for all candidates (interns, full-time, audit, tax) to meet entry level associates who can relate a little more to the candidates and offer their viewpoints on office culture and opportunities. The interview itself was not bad, and Grant Thornton was very welcoming and I definitely would have worked there if I had not accepted an offer elsewhere.
    My tip would be to really genuinely get to know everyone during the interview process. Don't consider it an interrogation, because it's an opportunity for you to interview the firm as much of it is vice versa.
    From what I've noticed, the interviewers genuinely want to get to know you so try building rapport with them before/during/after the interview!
