    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

    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.
