    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at WithumSmith + Brown (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    My resume was forwarded to a partner at the firm. That same partner and a senior manager contacted me via email, to coordinate a time and date for an onsite interview as my skills aligned with a hiring need. The interview was predominately conversational. I met with three separate senior managers operating out of the New York practice. Each manager was candid about the culture, their experience at the firm as well as their expectations for a new hire. I felt comfortable with these individuals, established a nice rapport and ultimately decided to move forward and sign on with Withum.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WithumSmith + Brown (New York, NY) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through campus and got an interview invite.

    Just 2 days before the interview, which was on Tuesday, the partner sends out an email on Sunday inviting everyone to a dinner Monday night and to RSVP ASAP. The entire dinner was a cringe-worthy experience where I was seated with an associate and 3 other colleagues and had to engage in forced conversation for 2 hours.

    On the interview day, the associate I was having dinner with was supposed to be the greeter and actually talk to the candidates to help ease their nerves; however, she sat on her laptop the entire time ignoring everyone. I interviewed with the Partner and the Q&A just seemed very disorganized. Only asked me 1 behavioral/situational question while the rest of the interview was just arbitrary.

    Took them over 3 weeks to get back with a response-- by then I already knew it was going to be a no.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at WithumSmith + Brown.

    Interview

    Interview was standard behavioral questions and telling about the culture of the firm. However, the interviewer was extremely unprofessional and wanted to know specifically what other firms I was interviewing with which made me extremely uncomfortable. Furthermore, they sent me a rejection email with the wrong school on it which shows the lack of respect they have for candidates.
