    Interview

    It was simple, nothing too complicated. They just went through your resume. They ask you to talk about yourself, and besides that it was just like having a normal conversation with a friend.

    Account Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Multiple phone and in-person interviews. After dragging out the process out for five months, and after a final round interview with five stakeholders, I received no response or update of any type from HR or the hiring manager. They spoke a great deal about their wonderful culture, however in my experience their treatment of me as a candidate speaks volumes over the rhetoric.

    Interview Questions

    • Exactly how would I help them with business development? This is not part of the role. Many other questions were asked, fishing for my ideas and taking notes.   Answer Question

    Summer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Hamden, CT) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Overall disappointed. I know people who have gotten into the program with less qualifications than me. I'm a personable person, and the back-to-back interviews with the recruiter and a partner went well. It was essentially a conversation between us that flowed seamlessly, both seemed like they had a good time, and I was shocked when I didn't receive an invitation to the program.

    Not sure much else I could say. It's a summer program, and when I'm interviewing for the big-4 and already gotten to later rounds for other firms, it's probably because they didn't like me.

    Interview

    I applied through my universities job site and networked at the career fair. I was invited for an onsite "visit" interview, even though I did not do an on-campus interview.

    Application

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

    Interview

    There were several recruiting events with a more casual feel and fun atmosphere followed by a more formal interview process. There were a lot of lunches and dinners. I got to meet the people I would be working closely with as opposed to just HR personnel.
