    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    The interview was an hour long with two one-on-one 30 minute interviews. One was mostly behavioral and definitely more structured while the other was purely conversational. The interviewers were either partners or managers at the firm. They both seemed interested in getting to know me and in both interviews we talked about our hobbies/activities outside of school/work.

    Application

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

    Interview

    On campus interviews that were stacked on each other. That was nice to have to work around school schedule. Questions were speedy and robotic. Hardly looked up to look at me, even when the interviewer asked a question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in November 2017.

    Interview

    Met at my school's career fair. Chatted with some of the professionals and eventually got invited to an office visit/ interview. Overall, they were very friendly and it was fairly laid back, probably due to the office being a bit smaller. Usually behavioral questions are asked, but it was really just conversation.
