    BAS Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly laid back interview process that consisted of two rounds: one thirty-minute interview and two back to back thirty-minute interviews. The first interview was with a manager who asked me to walk them through my resume, along with some other fit questions. The second two interviews were much more like conversations and are used to gauge how you will fit in with the teams with whom you will be working.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was fairly straightforward as far as accounting interviews go - phone screening, a morning interview process, complete with in-person interviews with the partners and education about the company and culture, a lunch, and an after-work social event. Keep in mind that each piece is part of the interview. Some people don't realize that and lose the job offer because of things said at the lunch or social events.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly basic behavioral questions, but the second interview was all about one partner's upcoming presentation. Though, I got the feeling from discussing interview questions with others, that my experience was unique there.   Answer Question
