    Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Squar Milner (Irvine, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through on-campus recruiting and was selected for an interview. I was the last interview of the day and the interviewer decided he wanted to grill me for 1 hr. He seemed to get really aggressive and even told me directly that some of my answers were not what he was looking for and made me think of other answers. He also stated: "I'm the interviewer here, so you're supposed to try to impress me". This experience has left a very unpleasant feeling towards the firm. As someone who has "been in the profession" for many decades, I expected more professionalism.

    Interview

    meet with recruiter, brief introduction, essay, interview with upper management, and lunch with seniors.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Squar Milner (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Laid back, more conversational with a few questions here and there. Not incredibly intimidating. Mostly talked about past experiences in college and some other things. Not so much questions from my resume and more behavioral questions like I said earlier. Still know your resume inside and out, I made comments on mine and the interviewer asked me to expand. Overall nothing to difficult, just be conversational and be yourself.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Squar Milner (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process was pretty easy. During the interview they try to just get to know you, as the team is a smaller, close-knit group so personality fit is very important. Know your resume very well as they do go through almost all line items on it to see how your experiences have helped you grow.
