    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal, nice guy, but really did not ask me anything about myself, but more about whether I would be willing to fill out tax returns. Did not ask me about my excellent education, my knowledge of the tax code, my experience at my prior law firm, or anything else that is important in determining whether to hire a prospective employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about my interest in preparing tax returns and my experience with them. Sounded like they wanted a glorified accountant. Not what I applied for. Somewhat misleading.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Because it sounded like a very boring position with no upside.
