    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Yakima, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Met for coffee at the Yakima WA office to talk about current job opportunities and the hiring process. I was given a tour of the Yakima office. Was not introduced to too many employees during the tour. The HR representative was very positive during the entire interview. No stressful questions. She did tell me that I had missed the fall hiring dates. She also told me to qualify for another interview I needed to have my degree completed and be qualified to sit for CPA exam. Also she mentioned that if I was able to get my CPA license in the my first year of employment that there was a substantial signing bonus. Overall it was a good first experience and I'm looking forward to submitting my application was I get approved to start taking the CPA exams.

    Campus Recruiting Process

    Interviewed on campus for 1st round with HR staff. The interview felt very relaxed and conversational however I feel I was expected to be more professional. The HR staff is personable and approachable. Long recruiting process wherein networking is important. Attend as much social and professional events as possible to increase "face time." "Fit" is also important.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP.

    Interview

    I applied through a university. The on campus interview was 30 minutes with a partner. That same week I heard that I was selected for second round interviews. They have a few selections for date or time. The office interview included a free lunch, which gave you the opportunity to speak and socialize with staff from both audit and tax. The group was then split in two, half attending a presentation while the other half had three 30 minute, back to back interviews with partners and senior managers, switching afterward. You are then free to leave with a nice gift. Questions for both interviews were largely behavioral and gave you the opportunity to ask a lot of questions yourself. I heard back from them the following week.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Moss Adams LLP (Spokane, WA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got invited to second round with Moss Adams. Overall interview was not hard at all. There were 3 sessions meeting with partner and manager each. They asked just general questions with a little bit of emphasis on teamwork and leadership ability. Interview followed with a social to meet other candidates and other staff. Social was awesome, more informal and relax, but they definitely were looking at you how you interact with people and see if you fit their firm.
