    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Chicago, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online for a position and was actually up-sold to another one. A couple of conversations with HR/recruiting, followed by two with two different national directors. No difficult questions, even talked salary expectations. Then silence. No emails returned. No calls returned. No courtesy shown whatsoever. Not what I would expect from a company that purports to be in professional services. No professionalism.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews. Met with Partners, other Directors. discussions circled around current experience, expectations and specific skill sets. It's a small team so personality fit was closely looked at.

    Interview process was straightforward and nothing out of the ordinary. Feedback was provided quickly and next steps was coordinated quickly by the recruiter.

    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    In response to my applying to an online posting for a senior consulting role, a recruiter reached out to me and we subsequently had an interview via phone. The recruiter expressed a high level of interest in my qualifications and indicated that the next step would be presenting my information to the hiring principal with a follow-up phone interview to likely follow.

    After several days, I simply received an impersonal, system-generated, take-a-hike email from their endearing "applicant tracking system". Look: I get the idea that canned emails can be used to respond to candidates who did not slip past the claws of the ATS. However, once the organization has engaged a limited number of candidates to move forward, professional communication throughout the process are the standard, regardless of the outcome. Judging by the background of those at GT in similar roles, it seems I was a bit over-qualified for this role. And that's fine. But at this point in the process, I would expect the recruiter to either pick up the phone or at least send a personally written email to this effect instead of opting to hide behind the HR firewall and lazily launching an ATS drone strike.

    This may have been an isolated instance, but it caused me to wonder as to whether this is in any way reflective of the culture and decorum within the organization.
