    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at RSM in March 2012.

    Interview

    Applies online and through campus career website, but what helped the most was giving them my resume at career fair. Process consisted of 45 minute interview at university- I was asked a lot about my resume, but most important part of the interview are the questions that I asked. I was notified the next week I had been accepted for the 2nd round Office Interviews. Office Interview consisted of 2- 45 minute 1 on 1 interviews with a partner and a director. They asked me very general questions about myself/resume, team work experience, "Why M&P?", "Why not big4?". Their questions lasted 5-10 mins. The rest of the time was for me to ask questions. The questions you ask are the most important part of the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RSM (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had to do online tests which were fairly straight forward. The Literacy one was quite difficult but i passed that. Then a video interview which i didn't pass. I felt the video interview went well but i guess i didn't match their criteria. I would advice people who do video interview to get constable and confident with speaking to the camera. They asked me a tough question at the end like how I have changed a of working that someone has suggested to me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RSM (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career site. Got a call for first round interview on campus. It was 30 min long with a senior level manager. She was very friendly, welcoming and had lots of information to share about her role and what I should be looking forwards to. It felt more of a get to know each other meeting rather than your typical behavioral filled traps interview process. They are looking for someone who can communicate well, and show enthusiasm and ability to work well with others. Same thing for the second round of interview in the office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at RSM (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Had a 30-min interview on campus with a Senior and was invited for an in-office interview. Their San Francisco office is absolutely stunning! In-office interview consisted of three 30-min interviews and all were conversational. Like what most have written, they are just trying to get to know you as a person, whether you'll fit in their culture or not. I didn't get an offer so maybe i don't belong there...

    Briefing of resume and interviewed followed with a casual conversation. It was very laid back. They were looking for someone that can handle themselves as a professional, but can carry a conversation beyond the office.

    Interview

    Lasted about 2 weeks. I applied through campus recruiting and interviewed on campus with a partner.

    Easy interview we talked about travel.

    Office visit included 3 interviews - 1 partner, 2 managers.

    Partner told me that most staff leave within a year or two because that's the business structure...there are a lot less senior roles than staff roles.

    No technical questions.

    A lot of emphasis on teamwork.
