    Intern Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was more of a get to know me and what I have to offer as apposed to a set questionnaire asked by the interviewer. First round will typically be with the division that you are applying for and then second rounds consist of two similar interviews with either a manager or partner of the office you applied to. A key role as the interviewee was getting to know the individuals you would be working with and fitting into the "McGladrey" culture.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    McGladrey Talent Executives continuously interview candidates for open positions. More often than not these positions are posted in preparation for an upcoming engagement sale. They are very slow in execution of the interview process until a staffing need has been established via a sold engagement. Once a need has been established they will hire whomever is in front of them. If you would like to work at McGladrey befriend your Talent Executive, if he or she is impressed by you - he or she will put you in front of the appropriate person, tell you what you need to know, and hand hold you through the process.
