    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Peterbilt (Denton, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university website, then about a month later I received an email from a recruiter asking me if I could come into the office for an interview. I interviewed with assistant plant controller and a plant manager. The interview was pretty relaxed, they talked about the company first to give me more information. No behavioral question, it was just like a conversation like tell me about yourself, about why I chose accounting, why industry and not public accounting, things like that. I thought it went okay but did not move on to the next step.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you prefer a more casual or work environment? What was your favorite accounting class and why? What programs do you know how to use? Why not public accounting?   Answer Question
