    Audit Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in November 2016.

    Interview

    Got through to the digital interview, was a bit weird just talking to myself as this was the first I had done. Question came up on screen, had 2 mins to prep then 2 mins to record a answer. 1 10 minute writing element which I didnt expect. Found out a few days I had been unsuccessful, I thought it had gone ok. 2 weeks later got a feedback call from them, said my interview was good just stronger candidates and wanted more detail on examples. however I felt like I couldn't add more detail with the 2 minute limit in case of getting cut of mid speaking. Before the digital interview they made it clear that they do follow up calls if they want more detail, so getting that the only feedback they could give me was i needed more detail confused me a bit.
