    I worked at AEI as an intern

    Pros

    Very respectful of your time as an intern, has professional development events at least once a week, and gives interns substantial work. They also provide amazing breakfast and lunch options each day!

    Cons

    It is unpaid (but they do provide $300 monthly travel stipends and the free breakfasts and lunches)

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AEI (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Step 1: phone screening with recruiter, lasted for 30 minutes
    Step 2: phone interview with Accountant Manager then CFO, lasted for an hour, 30 minutes
    The recruiter asked too many questions for phone screening, went into too much detail. Speaking with the CFO and Accountant manager was a very easy process. The staff of AEI is very friendly and approachable, makes the interviewee feel comfrotable. They didn't stick to the "interview script" and they really want to get to know you as a person. It was a rather pleasant and educational experience for me. Accountant manager asked a simple journal entry question, and the CFO asked two behavioural questions that showcase your accounting knowledge at the same time.
