    I have been working at Clark Schaefer Hackett full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work for the IT Group at Clark, Schaefer, Hackett & Co. and I would like to share my own opinion about Clark, Schaefer, Hackett & Co. from an IT perspective.
    To keep it simple: Clark, Schaefer, Hackett & Co. has the best IT Group I have had the pleasure of working for. CSH's IT Group's #1 mission is to provide the best possible Client Service to our Firm employees and our external clients. This in itself does not sound any different than other companies IT mottos, however Clark, Schaefer, Hackett & Co. raises the bar significantly.
    I can confirm that every single person in our IT Group is 100% focused on making sure our Employees and Clients receive the best possible IT service. We recruit, hire and train individuals who have a passion for IT and for providing excellent customer service.
    Every employee in our Firm, regardless of position, who submits a request for IT support, will receive support within 30 minutes. Over 90% of our IT support tickets are resolved within 20 minutes.
    Here at Clark, Schaefer, Hackett & Co. we strive to operate "Above the Line”.

    Working for this company has been the best position in my IT career and I truly enjoy my position.

    Cons

    From an IT perspective, the only CON would be longer hours during Tax busy season. Naturally, working for one of the top Accounting firms in the country, Tax Season is a very busy time of year. All of our Tax Professional are working longer hours and more days. As a result, we extend our service hours, work longer days and work on Saturday mornings up until April 15th.

    Working more could be considered a CON, however, we are helping our Tax Professionals to keep working efficiently and we are all a Team.

    Even though hours do get longer for a couple months during busy season, the hours do slow down during other periods of the year. To be quite honest, I don't mind the hours and the schedule, however I want to provide some form of feedback for this field so this is what I wanted to share. It's really not bad at all though.

    Advice to Management

    Our Management is top notch and I do not have any advice for Management. I myself am not in Management and feel our Management is doing a fantastic job. I do not have any advice to offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Clark Schaefer Hackett (Columbus, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy going from the recruiter to my morning filled with back to back interviews. Everyone was so nice and they really made me feel welcomed. I haven't interviewed in a long time so I was nervous but I didn't need to be because the interviewers were all very down to earth and didn't try to trick me up with any strange questions. The company recruiter is probably the nicest recruiter I've ever dealt with and that was very refreshing!

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't get a whole lot of technical questions (which was nice bc I prepared like I needed to retake the CPA exam). One that I remember is: What accounts do I focus on when preparing financials or a tax return.   1 Answer
