Staff Accountant Interview

Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2014.

Interview

One screening phone call and a face-to-face with two hiring managers. It was an extremely easy interview, the two mangers were pleasant and really interested in hearing about my interest in the company. I received a phone call two days later asking for information for a background check and than an offer was extended. Everyone was up front about the salary during the interview. Overall one of the easier and painless experiences in finding a job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Quick to schedule and move the process along. They were friendly; however, one of the interviewers was a bit more pecimistic about the fit implying I was overqualified and wouldn't stick around. This made me second guess wether it was an appropriate fit and I passed on the final interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.

    Interview

    I applied online and a week later I got an email from the Director of Finance to schedule an in person interview the next week. Comes the interview and it was very different than what I expected. It was very casual and not intimidating which was very nice because interviews make me very anxious. Talked to the Director of Finance and told them about myself, why I wanted a job in accounting. The thing that really threw me off was there were no technical questions or any typical behavioral questions, just a explanation of the company and the accounting department. The whole interview was more like a regular conversation. A week later I got a call with an offer and gave information for a background check. I wasn't able to start until a few weeks and they were okay with that which was also nice. The company cares a lot about personality and being yourself. The pay is not as high as I hoped, but it is a good job to get experience right after college.
