    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Straightforward and laidback. Mostly behavioral questions. Interviewer was particularly interested in my extracurricular activities and spent a good portion talking about it. After that, the interview asked me about my past work experience and what I did within each company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The recruiter was really nice. The questions were very open ended though. Sometimes the intent of the question was unclear and asking questions didn't provide much more information. I wasn't super prepared, so I was left wondering if I answered the question well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was unorganized. Initially, the process went smooth and I received a call that I had gotten an offer. After a couple of weeks I checked up and still didn't receive it. Recently, GT asked me if I was "still interested" and I said yes and I haven't heard back and that was two weeks ago. Their public sector is ok tho lol

    I had the on-campus interview at my university. I was invited back for an interview in their local office. I was later offered the position, and I accepted the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    For the internship, I first had a 30 minute behavioral style interview on campus. Then, I had an individual office visit in Dallas where I had three interviews with partners. There were some behavioral questions for the office visit, but most of the conversations were personality fit. HR got back to me very quickly after the first round, but the office took a while to coordinate my office visit.
