    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a great experience. First time that I met the people of this company was in an event( A day with Moss Adams-just a networking event, I forget the event name), there is the hint: making sure that you've talk with everyone in that event. I had my first round interview in the company, it was informational. Second interview(final round)still in the company, but 19 other candidates were there with me. Don't be nervous, just show them your personality-be yourself is extremely important. Showing your qualifications and preparing enough for those behavior questions. There were so many questions that I never heard before, when I was in the interviews. So, my advise is never copy other's words, because if you were trying to remember the answers, things become worse and worse. I never prepare answers for those type of questions, because no one wants to hire a robot.

    IT Audit Staff Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was straightforward. I applied cold via their HR site, was contacted by a sourcer who set up a "Skype" interview with HR. Interviewed with HR, and then scheduled a day of short phone interviews, and 1 in-person interview at a nearby coffee shop. After that was invited for a day of in-house interviews with the same people, did an office tour, got taken out to a fancy lunch, and had an interview with the group's practice leader. Because the team is small, everyone knows each other, and has fluidity in working with other IT audit staff from other offices.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about Moss Adams?, Why Moss Adams? What are you looking to do in your career? What was the biggest challenge you've faced? What do you do in your free time? A lot of the interview process is you asking them questions, that show how much you know and what your values are. The firm appears to be very values based (or at least the team I was interested in was)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (San Francisco, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Campus interview- went well, just aim at having a conversation with the interviewer. Briefly goes over your resume to explain the stuff on it/ elaborate on it.

    2nd Interview- Flew me into San Francisco's office from my school at UCSB. Paid for flight and hotel. Had a reception the 1st day where you meet and talk with people who are currently working at Moss Adams. Could be your interviewer the next day. The 2nd day you get 3 thirty minute interviews with senior staff or management. They also take you out to lunch or coffee before with other staff before or after your interview.

    The environment is friendly, very team work built. Be prepared with questions and answers. The people were overall friendly and they take about two weeks to get back to you.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me about yourself"
      "Provide examples of leadership qualities"

      Not difficult questions but two out of my three interviewers asked that. I don't know if I got an offer or not because I just had my interview last week.

    Receptionist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (San Francisco, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Originally had a 30 minute phone screen, most were standard questions such as why I left my last job, salary requirements and behavioral questions like how I dealt with a difficult colleague. A timeframe was given for when a decision would be made and I was contacted within that time to invite me for a face to face interview. The interview was 30 minutes with the hiring manager and then an hour for skills testing. This was a screening interview and the hiring manager described in detail the position and the partner needs.

    I was notified via phone the next day that my candidacy would not be moving forward. While somewhat disappointing, it is rare that a company is so prompt in notifying unsuccessful candidates. It is all too common for companies not to notify the unsuccessful candidates. I do appreciate the courtesy and professionalism extended to me.
