    Tax Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elmhurst, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duchossois Industries (Elmhurst, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Went through a recruiter. Got an interview within 3 days of talking with the recruiter.

    I met with 4 people on the first interview (HR, Tax Manager, Director, VP, Tax). They were nice people. Described that I would not have a work-life balance. Work 7 days/week for many different deadlines.

    Second interview, you meet with CEO, Craig Duchossois and some of the previously mentioned team members. Easy going interview.

    Received an offer, but declined it because I know there are jobs out there with a better work-life balance, even in the tax field. Received an offer from another company within a week.

    People are nice, job would have been awful. Take it how you will.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The hours described were awful. No work-life balance.

    Got an offer from a better opportunity.
