    Tax Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kieckhafer Schiffer (Irvine, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was basically like 5 mini interviews, in a sense (each one was 30 minutes, but the lunch was about an hour and a half), and it lasted for about 4 hours:
    1. Interview with the Senior Tax manager (the guy I interviewed with was on track for become Partner)
    2. Next was the Tax supervisor
    3. Went to lunch with two tax staff
    4. One of the partners
    5. Another partner

    BE PREPARED TO ASK QUESTIONS, questions that will then allow you to somehow explain and sell yourself, and your objectives. They hardly asked me any questions, and it was more like, "So you heard the Internship process and duties, what questions do you have for me? In a sense, it was an easy interview, but I was not prepared for it.

    Interview Questions

    • The first interview with the Senior Tax manager asked me "Tell me a time where you succeeded in a high pressure situation."
      Other than that, he pretty much went over the duties and responsibilities and what to expect from the internship. Tax supervisor kind of asked some questions based off my resume. The lunch was the most chill because it's with two staff who were just there to kind of mellow the mood.

      Then when I got to the partners, they both literally said, "So, you've heard the whole Intern process and responsibilities, do you have any questions for me?" That was literally how the last two 30 minute sessions went about, which threw me off because I was so prepared to answer questions and sell myself, and not be the one to ask questions and still sell myself.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kieckhafer Schiffer in October 2014.

    Interview

    I learned about this great company when I attended a Meet the Firms event. I approached Mr. Scott, one of the partners, and introduced myself. The next day, I received a call from Mr. Scott to invite me to an interview. The interview in very casual and I just interviewed with one partner. I felt like it was just a conversation. He did not attacked me with a lot and tricky questions like other employers tend to do. After the interview was over, I was invited for lunch with three other employees from different levels.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kieckhafer Schiffer (Irvine, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I went to Meet the Firms and met a partner, manger, and senior. I got an email inviting me for lunch, an office tour, and interview. When I got to the firm I had interviews with two different partners. One interview was casual, and the other one was more intense, which has to do more with the partner style. I was walked around the office and introduced to many associates at the firm. Then I went to lunch with the original partner, manager, and senior, that I met.
