    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First round interviews were on campus. Typically the recruiting manager and an Alumni (senior or partner) are the interviewers for that. Second round interview is at the office. It was an awesome experience, they take you to lunch, then afterwords you meet with 4 interviewers. Afterwords they have a social with food and drinks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview for the position went very well. Standard get-to-know-you questions, but the recruiter was very pleasant and I felt like we were having a nice conversation. The in-person interview was a different story. I had a one-on-one interview which was a similar pleasant experience. It was, unfortunately, followed by an interview with two ladies who were very cold and unpleasant. I felt they didn't give me a chance from the moment they saw me for whatever reason (maybe they didn't like my blouse?) and answering their questions was uncomfortable. I knew I didn't want to work at that company after speaking with them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of an on-campus interview and in-office interviews.

    On-campus: 30 minute Interview with a partner on campus. The questions were strictly behavioral and we spent sometime chatting about my resume then concluded with questions for the interviewer.

    In-office interview: Went out to breakfast with 4 staff members(1st year staff-manager) and then interviewed with 4 partners for 30 minutes each. The interviews were straightforward and focused on my resume and behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online after being referred by classmate in grad school. Had a one hour phone interview with the corporate recruiter in Seattle. She was very friendly and very thorough in trying to figure out my story. I did a lot of explaining my career path and why I wanted the job. I got asked for an in-person interview in the Portland, OR office. The in-person interview was actually three 20-30 minute interviews back-to-back with the managers in the department I would be working in. Again, all polite and friendly, albeit repetitive, just getting to know me. Had I gotten through the round (I didn't), there would have been another round of interviews with the partners.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting. The first interview took place on campus two weeks after my application was submitted. Two weeks later, I was invited to the second interview, which was at their main office. It was about four hours long started with a brief presentation about the firm, and followed by four 1:1 interviews with managers, senior managers, and partners. A post-interview social event was hosted to give candidates a chance to meet other people at the firm. Overall, everyone was very nice and friendly and the interview process is well-organized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Portland, OR) in June 2010.

    Interview

    HR was very responsive and helpful on setting up multiple interviews in different offices. Standard phone screen with the recruiter within a day of applying. First face to face interview within a week; subsequent face to face soon thereafter. Conditional offer out within 3 weeks of the initial application submission. Interview process was more 'how well do you fit into our culture' than technical. Heavy emphasis however on leadership skills and ability to juggle multiple engagements at once.

    Interview

    As I waited for the interview in my career center, I chatted with a recruiter who asked me about my interests, what classes I was taking, what I had done the previous weekend, etc. Then, I was called in to an interview room to have a formal interview with another recruiter. She asked about my resume, my interests. Pretty standard.
