    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PKF International (Houston, TX) in May 2008.

    Interview

    I was recruited out of the University of Houston. The purpose of on campus recruiting is to hire interns. Successful interns are then made full time offers for after they graduate.
    On campus interview consisted of a 20 minute interview with a Senior Manager & a Director (which is in effect a partner at PKF.)
    A few days later I was called to schedule an office visit.
    The night before the office visit you are invited to a dinner with several current employees. The actual office visit was an event that took most of the day. About 6 or 7 other candidates were interviewing that day. It started with a welcome coffee and breakfast session where a good number of current employees were present. They were all very friendly and engaging. After the welcome session, I went straight to interviews. I had three interviews, which were a half hour each with various directors or managers.
    After the interviews all of the candidates went out to lunch. I ended up sitting next to the president of the firm which was kind of nerve wracking.
    After lunch we came back and had several different sessions, one where the president talked about the history of the firm, and another where several employees came in and let us ask them whatever questions we wanted. The office visit ended around 3pm or so.
    I received a call and internship offer later that afternoon.

    Interview Questions

    • It was refreshing that I didn't receive any weird or out of the ordinary questions. The interviews mostly like a get to know you type thing. Half serious talk and the other half casual.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation. Everyone gets the same salary offer. Take it or leave it. It was competitive though. It was about $1,000 less than big 4 firms, but considering that the parking is free, you come out ahead.

    Senior Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ḩawwārah, Amman Governorate (Jordan)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PKF International (Ḩawwārah, Amman Governorate (Jordan)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I've submitted my resume online and it has been forwarded from head office to Jordan offices where I am based. Jordan offices called for an interview without further details, went to interview 10 minutes before interview time and i was informed by the reception that I had to complete application form and exam. Then, I had to meet the HR Manager to inform me indirectly that they had to follow up on my application because it was received through their head office!! And asked to complete the exam and form only to complete HR procedure. After that I've received an email advising that my experience is different from their work which I consider it as just an "excuse" because I just received an offer from another international company working in same field as Professional services Manager. I believe that company can easily apologize due to not having any vacancies at the moment or at least start with an interview over the phone but not to waste applicant time and effort just for a play in front of head office
