    Interview

    Very relaxed feel the entire process. They want to find people that fit well with their culture, so the interviews are more conversation style. They want to hear you talk about yourself, your experiences in work, school, and life.

    Phone interview with Talent Aquisition Manager. Went well.
    In person interviews with the HR Director, HR Manager, peer to this role, Head.of People and Culture, two Practice Partners, 3 separate face to face interviews. I was supposed to meet the Head of the Office but was cancelled after meetings with both partners. They didn't feel I had enough experience and I have almost 20 years, really?

    I was interviewed by two managers, each for 30 minutes. They mostly asked me behavioral questions and then talked about whatever I was willing to bring up. The environment in both interviews was lax.

    Interview

    It had a pre-interview dinner the day before the interview. About 8 tables, including both tax and audit. The interview in the next day was 30 minutes, kind of laid-back. Need to take a office visit interview next week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (Dallas, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very causal and conversational. They were genuinely interested in getting to know you as a person. It was nice because you already knew the person interviewing you from the pre interview dinner the night before.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a single 30 minute interview at college, then at office visit I participated in 3 30 minute interviews. The interviews were conversational and they told me after lunch their decision, which was different from every other firm I interviewed with, who called within 2 weeks or sent an email. Grant Thornton were straight shooters, I can confidently say truely care about helping their employees grow.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I chose not to negotiate, because I was happy that they picked me to intern with them. After the internship process I may choose to negotiate, if they extend a full time offer.
