    The interview process has gone very smoothly. I am interviewing for an entry-level position and had the first round of interviews at my school. I have been invited back for an office visit and will be taking it next week. They have had numerous social events before the interviews that I have attended and it has been an enjoyable process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Met GT at a job fair, everyone at the booth was extremely friendly and approachable. I handed my resume to them, and within the week I received an email inviting me to 1st round of interviews. I gladly accepted and met with a manager for an interview. Waited for about another week and received an invite to 2nd round of interview. This one lasted 4 hours, but it was a great experience! They really eased you into anything and I was never uncomfortable!

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in October 2014.

    Interview

    Did on-campus recruiting. I knew some alum that went to my school prior to interviewing and started getting to know the recruiter maybe a year before applying. I was invited to a first round interview at school, pre-event socials, and finally a second round interview at the office which consisted of 3 interviews and lunch with some professionals. On offer day, I got a phone call at 8am from a partner to let me know that I will be receiving an offer.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Reno, NV) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process started when I met the recruiter at an on campus event. First was an on campus interview with an audit manager where she asked a few basic interview questions but we mostly talked about my interests and what I did for extracurricular activities while in school. Next was the in office interview, I had two interviews in the office one with a partner and the other with a manager. The partner was very relaxed and wanted to know more about me and what my plans were for my career. The manager was very busy finishing an audit for a big client, she asked me 3 questions and didn't want to talk much longer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (McLean, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There were two back to back 30 minute on campus interviews. They were not doing office interview, and extended offers a few days after the on campus interview. Everything was very laid back. Everyone from the greeters to the interviewers were happy to be there and were extremely personable. Pre-interview reception the night before was really good too.

    Interview

    They were focused on personality mainly. No technical questions. As long as you don't screw up, you'll likely get an offer. They try to cater to you as an interviewee, but treat you awfully afterwards.
