    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in May 2017.

    Interview

    J'ai répondu à une annonce à la suite de laquelle une personne des ressources humaines m'a contacte tres rapidement. Premier entretien de qualification RH dans la semaine qui a suivi, plutot positif de part est d'autre. J'ai été séduit par la présentation de l'entreprise qui correspondait à l'idée que je m'en été faite. Passage à la seconde étape avec un entretien avec le responsable hiérarchique. L'entretien a été planifié un mois plus tard et repoussé à deux reprises. Ce deuxième entretien m'a laissé une très désagréable impression. Beaucoup de question en terme de méthodologie et d'organisation. Au cours de l'entretien, le manager précise que le poste a été rouvert car la personne embauchée précédemment n'avait pas convenu. A la suite duquel je n'ai plus eu du tout de nouvelles.

They also let you explain and defend your answer. It was a great experience all in all. The next day, I received a phone call regarding the final interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied for a marketing position that required several more years of experience that I didn't have but I thought it would be worth a shot to apply anyways. The recruiter reached out to me to schedule a phone screen interview and invited me to a 1.5 hour on-site interview at the very end of the phone call. I had a pleasant discussion with 2 people - the hiring manager and 1 was someone I would work with. Hiring manager mentioned that there would be a 2nd on-site if I was selected to move forward. Recruiter said she would follow-up after the interview and never did.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Phone interview with someone from HR. The beginning of the conversation went well when discussing my background and experience but once we discussed salary requirements the conversation was cut short. I had mentioned to HR that the salary was low compared to the market average for this type of position and she ended the conversation there. I did not even get a chance to ask questions about the position.
