I worked at Grant Thornton Ireland full-time (More than a year)
The people. They were some of the brightest, kindest and most talented people I could have ever hoped to worked with. They taught me so much, and really made the long hours bearable. I consider many my friends (not just networking contacts) even after leaving.
When I was there, they may have been a bit understaffed at the Associate/Senior Associate level, but this was also not long after the 2008-2009 general economic implosion. I think most firms were cautious about they're hiring during the subsequent couple years.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing -- a part of me wishes I was still there!
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grant Thornton Ireland.
I got an initial phone interview through campus recruiting. Submitted my resume and cover letter and received an interview about a week later. The phone interview was pretty conversational. The interviewer basically went over my resume and asked questions. Most of the questions were simple, but a couple were curve balls that I just didn't prepare for.
