    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Grant Thornton in January 2017.

    Interview

    Straight forward, it was a digital interview so the questions were pre recorded but they were competency based so not too difficult to prepare for. I found it uncomfortable to speak in the digital interview which was my downfall

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Started with an online application, with a series of questions which were aligned with their behavioral capabilities, fairly straight forward process. Then a digital interview, which involved recording yourself and answering questions within a specific time frame. This also included a written answer to one of the questions, overall took about 20 minutes. Did not progress after this stage.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    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!

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    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
