    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Overall, easy interview. They are more concerned with liking you than if you will make a good employee.
    The first in person interview was for the wrong position. No one would fess up to how that happened. They requested a second in house interview two weeks later, where I met with the same department and was asked the same questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. First round--on campus. Second round--office visit with three interviewers.

    It's important to make a good impression at events during the pre-interview stage. Getting to know the firm and the people handling recruiting at career fairs and social events goes a long way towards doing well during more formal interviews. I had already established a good report with my first-round interviewer at prior events, so the actual interview went very smoothly.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Interviews were mainly behavioral.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP (South Florida, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    On campus interview was with a partner, typical behavior questions. Shortly after I was invited to office visit. About 40 of us were interviewing, 3 back to back 30 min interviews. I thought they went well, almost entirely conversational, the last of the 3 definitely went less smooth than the others. Got a 'thanks but no thanks' email a few days later.
