    I applied the position through campus. It took a week to process and I received an on campus interview. Very laid back and go through your resume and experience as well as some behavior questions. I received an email for the office interview next day. Second round is onsite, interviewed with HR for 15 min. Then interviewed with a partner and 2 managers for one hour and half. Also very conversational and a few behavior questions. They just want to know whether you fit RubinBrown or not.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RubinBrown.

    Interview

    1st interview on campus with 2 accountants. Very relaxed and conversational, nothing to stress. Received an email for an on-campus within a week that was scheduled 2 weeks later. 1:1 interview with a partner and another employee as well as a quick meeting with an HR rep. These interviews were friendly, but more professional and serious. It made you think whether you really were interested in doing accounting related work. Received a phone call 2 weeks later for an offer.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at RubinBrown.

    Interview

    Applied through my university after the career fair. Got asked for an interview on campus that took about 35 minutes. Last 10 minutes or so was questions that I got to ask. No real difficult questions or curve balls. Spent much of the time just talking about what working at RubinBrown is like. The rest of the time was just talking about the work experience on my resume and explaining what I did at each place.

    IT Audit Interview

    Interview

    As with, what seems to be, all public accounting firms the interview was very conversational. Don't stress too much, they'll either like you or not. Nothing you can do. If you try to answer the way you THINK they want you will come across as fake and a bad. So, they'll see you as bad fit. Just be your self.

    Audit Staff - First Year Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clayton, MO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at RubinBrown (Clayton, MO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was on campus where I met an audit staff employee with a couple of years experience. It was very laid back, didn't receive a single question that didn't cover something on my resume. No behavioral questions. Got an invite for an office visit a couple of days later, and was scheduled to meet with four employees on a Friday (1 HR, 1 staff, manager, and partner).

    After waiting 15 minutes past my first interview time (30 minutes total because I showed up early), I was greeted by an intern in place of who I was supposed to meet with who took me to the interview spot. The interview spot, along with all the other conference rooms were taken up, so the intern and I had to wait for one to be open. Once it opens, my initial interviewer shows up and we start. Like the on campus interview, it was very laid back and was just questioned about prior education and work experience. What was supposed to be a 30 minute interview turned into nearly an hour and a half because apparently the interview times had changed for the second and third interview (this was the second time it was changed since the initial scheduling). They decided to just throw an available manager into the interview after much confusion. Again, the interview portion went great, and I was given some behavioral questions at this point. Finally, this interview ends after about 45 minutes and the third interviewer is no where to be found. The second interviewer decided to give me a quick tour of the office and we stopped by the third interviewers office. Apparently, the schedule he was sent told him the meeting was at a later time. I was then walked back to the lobby and elevator entrance to leave. No rescheduling of the last interview, not even an apology.

    The whole interview process at RubinBrown was by far the most uncoordinated, unprofessional experience I've witnessed among the 6+ firms I interviewed with in the St. Louis area. Although I immediately ruled them out, I still followed up and thanked them and began to wait to hear back. Two weeks go by with nothing, so I decided to send a message. I was given a deadline from other offers, and told RB when I needed to hear by no matter what the outcome. Although they confirmed they would get back to me, the deadline came and went and I accepted another offer. Two more weeks go by, and I finally receive back an answer after sending another message. Through reading other reviews on RB, it's clear they have a huge communication problem at this firm. Would not recommend applying with this firm! There are plenty of other options that provide a much better interview process!
