    Audit Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was okay. Did not ask too many questions. More on prior experience and future goals/plans. However, when I followed up, the recruiters were not answering my emails. Not heard of them again after more than a month, so I am not sure if the process is really slow or they just decided that I will not go through. An email that I am not be considered already would be very much helpful.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Stamford, CT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The initial process went well. I spoke with talent acquisition and the hiring manager the same week. The hiring manager wanted to schedule a third interview which she had me schedule through her assistant. Her assistant only got back to me once. When I contacted talent acquisition they told me ti " hang tight, we have to do some reviews" that " hang tight" turned into a MONTH of waiting. When I followed up I was told " Sorry I thought the emails went out automatically. We have already hired for this position"
    It is terrible to give a potential employee hope but to leave them waiting a whole month without any follow-up. It also felt like management and talent acquisition didnt really know what the each other was doing or communicating.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Bloomington, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a resume drop. Once you were accepted for an on campus interview, there was a networking event and then the on campus interview. My interviewer had told me he usually doesn't give interviews. There were very few behavioral questions and no technical questions. He mostly asked about how the Big4 were recruiting on campus and had me ask him questions. I felt as though this interviewer didn't give me a chance to highlight my skills; he mostly seemed concerned with other professional service competitors hiring practices. It was very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any questions for me? How did our pre-night compare to the Big4?   Answer Question

    Tax Senior Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Tacoma, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn then through McGladrey's website. I was an out-of-state applicant so it took very long to get to the interview process. About two months after applying, I received an email from their recruiter. She called me for a interview screening-things went well during this phone screen. About two weeks later, I was set up on a Skype interview with the Partner/Directors. I guess that went well because they gave me an offer less than a week later. The process was quick after the two months of screening my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a tax difficulty you had with a client and how did you solve the problem.   Answer Question
