    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    On campus interview. The interview was quite simple. The only questioned asked was "tell me about yourself?"

    I know I answered the question well! I felt that by the time my interview came up, the recruiter who was a manger had already chosen someone else for the second round.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Just resume and behavior based questions. As an accounting major at an accredited accounting school, all the big firms recruit really hard. After some networking, I had an interview for their leadership conference in New York and then Florida. I couldn't attend the conference in Florida but I still received an offer to be a full year intern. You really just have to network hard and be passionate about the job being offered.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grant Thornton (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I have gotten in touch with a recruiter and she set me up with a Super Day after a quick phone screen. The phone screen was mostly behavioral questions, so it wasn't difficult. At the Super Day, everyone met in their conference room where breakfast was served and everyone introduced themselves. A partner also came in and talked about future plans for the firm. The interview process was a breeze. It was 3 30 minute interviews with 1 break thrown in there. Again, it was mostly behavioral questions. After, the candidates were treated out for lunch with fellow associates and experienced associates. It was good to know them more on a personal level, without the professional mindset.
