    Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Had a 30-min interview on campus with a Senior and was invited for an in-office interview. Their San Francisco office is absolutely stunning! In-office interview consisted of three 30-min interviews and all were conversational. Like what most have written, they are just trying to get to know you as a person, whether you'll fit in their culture or not. I didn't get an offer so maybe i don't belong there...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Two step process 1 person interview on campus and then office visit with three interviewers. You just have a big culture and age gap from students and associates in Houston. Makes for an awkward, very critical management. Did not enjoy the interview at all, as the interviewers really do not know how to engage in an enjoyable conversation (due to their old age).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2015.

    Interview

    The location I applied for had a great office environment. I had two interviews which lasted a little over an hour (total). It felt like we were having a conversation rather than an interview. They wanted to get to know me and see if my character would be a fit for their team. We found common interests and carried conversations through that. My suggestion is to research the company and ask as many questions as you can. That way you can get a better understanding if they're a great fit for you, and vice-versa. After the interview was over, I was given a quick tour of the office and an opportunity to meet other employees. Everyone was really nice and welcoming. A week later, HR emailed me my acceptance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    First round: on-campus - 30 minute interview (behavioral based questions)
    Second round: McGladrey office - two 30 minute interviews (behavioral based questions)

    Questions were pretty basic. Know how to walk through your resume and give details about the positions you have been apart of/currently hold. For the most part, the interviews felt very conversational as opposed to Q & A.
