    Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Alexandria, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was highly detailed and I met with 8 different managers and senior managers over the course of three in person interviews before being hired. The managers I interviewed with were excellent. They asked me questions that were targeted to understand how I think and problem solve and what type of team player I am. All the questions were very fair and I do not think anyone was trying to intentionally ask anything that would throw you off balance, just direct questions that helped them get to know you. The personal exchanges I had with the various managers during this process where also very positive. It was actually a "fun" interview process.

    Advisory Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rainham, London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Rainham, London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Simple Internet Interview. The fact that it was in fact an interview that was recorded over webcam and you only had one opportunity to record your answer was a bit daunting. You are given time to prepare however, but i feel like you need to be ready to accept that it will not feel like your talking to someone, therefore you should use the opportunity provided to prepare adequately.
