    Interview

    I reached out via email to the recruiter and a couple weeks later heard back from her to set up an interview. I interviewed 3 people over Skype.

    They didn't really ask too many questions. They wanted to know how interested I was in them and allowed me to ask most of the questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Whitley Penn (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    So far, on-campus interview and then invited to an office interview. The interviewer almost seemed like he didn't want to be there. It really frightened me so I tried to make jokes because I assumed it was because I was the 10th person he interviewed that day!

    He called less than a week later with a pleasant voice inviting me for an office interview and saying he enjoyed talking with me. So, I think he was just tired.

    Interview

    It was an on campus interview. I did my research before going in for the interview. I thought I would be quizzed on how well I knew company culture and services during the interview but it was actually very casual and friendly interview process. She mostly wanted to to know why I was interested in Accounting, Audit in particular. Other than that, it was all very basic getting-to-know someone type of questions.
