    Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn regarding an opening with Grant Thornton. I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter that went well. I then did a phone interview with the overall program director that also went well. My third interview was with the person who I would have directly reported to. I was told that following that interview, I would be invited to meet with leadership and executives in person as well as some additional team members. After a somewhat lengthy phone interview process, I was never contacted again. After two attempts to reach the recruiter who sourced me, I gave up trying to touch base. I was really disappointed that I never received any more communication from the company letting me know why I was not selected to go any further in the process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    I did an on-campus interview. It was the quickest interview of my life, he only asked me five questions and then asked if I had any questions for him. It lasted less than 20 minutes total. The questions were generally to be expected ("what have been your favorite classes?" "where do you see yourself in x years?") and then a couple behavioral questions.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    First call was with an outside Recruiter. He was great and thought I was a strong candidate based on cultural fit as well as professional experience. The second round was another phone call, this time directly with a member of the consulting team, more culture fit and "tell us about yourself and your background" questions. The last round was an intensive 3-hour in-person process. First hour was with two Consultants who walked through my CV and probed every project and previous job. Very detailed. 2nd hour was a case study with two consultants. No prep time and the case was given orally. Needed to identify weaknesses in the P&L (they had one when I asked) and make recomendations on whether or not to drop a product line. I was then given a 2nd case study focusing on change management and workforce augmentation. The last hour was with the VP. He came off like he didn't want to be there and was annoyed I was wasting his time.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend. Had a phone interview that covered basic interests and fit. Then had an on-site interview with 2 managers, and went out to lunch with members from the RAS team. The interviews were good conversations, fairly straightforward, nothing to trip you up. Bring questions for them after the conversation is winding down.

    After that i was asked to join the full team for a happy hour, and it seemed like a good fit. i was not offered the job immediately due to a hiring hault, but after nearly 3 months, i was offered the position.
