    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SingerLewak (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got a call the following day I applied from the hiring recruiter. Had a phone interview the following day. I was asked 2-3 of the usual interview questions and my salary requirements. I was emailed within an hour to set up an in office interview. It was a panel interview with the partner and a manager. It was conversational. They asked me about some things on my resume, a few technical questions and a few to gauge why I was leaving my current employer. Received an offer the next day.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview at 11am with a Director Partner. The partner called at 11:20. Ultimately I left with a sour taste in my mouth. The partner questioned the validity of my college degree, questioned if I spelled the name of a previous company I worked for correctly, and told me he was not listening at one point. From this experience I would not want to work for this firm.

    Staff Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SingerLewak (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    It can be lengthy... you will meet with all levels of the team. I came into the office twice for interviews and it took another week to get a decision. If you want to negotiate any aspect of your offer, be prepared to be patient. The answers to my questions about the firm were pretty standard so it was difficult to feel like I really knew what I was getting in to. I'd suggest asking for an email of a current staff you can ask questions to.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions regarding technical expertise.Very few questions about me or my goals.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Lengthy--sticking points on salary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SingerLewak (San Jose, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview began with a simple 15minute phone regarding my interests. The same day I received an email saying they wanted to bring me into the office. The in office interview was 2 panels of 2 people each. Questions were about 30% technical and 70% about my background. They were more focused on my resume and what I have accomplished more than anything. The interview process was about 1.5 hours long and more conversational than anything.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at SingerLewak (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    The company has continual interactions with my school's Accounting Society.
    At one of the 'Office Tours' I networked with many professionals. An Audit manager took an interest in me and continued the networking through email. He recommended me for a tax position in the company and referred me over to the tax partner.

    From there on, I continued a dialogue with the tax partner through email over couple of months. He understandably became busy during tax season and communications became sparse until after April. I had in-person, 1-1 interview with partner that lasted 1.5 hours. The interview felt more like a conversation. He indicated numerous times that he favored many of my skills and attributes. I felt confident I chose a great company by the end of the interview.

    It was about a month until I had my second interview.
    This second interview I met with 2 managers. They appeared to like what they do at the company. They asked relatively easy behavioral questions, and a few qualification questions. I felt they kept getting hung-up on the fact I was working on a Master's now instead of waiting 3-5 years into the job.
    Then I interviewed with 2 staff that I would have worked closely within the position. I honestly felt these people had great personality. Their dedication to the company was commendable. I really liked getting to know them as employees and people that can demonstrate how to have a work-life balance. They gave me pointers on what to expect when I start there. There was a lot of great dialogue and laughter during this interview. I felt I connected best with these last 2 staff.

    All the networking, interviews, and connections I made led me to feel I was going to receive an offer letter any day. It was a shock to my core when I received that generic HR email that I didn't get the position. That was cold and wasn't even addressed to me.
