I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Indo American News (Houston, TX) in January 2009.
The first interview was a 30-45 minutes phone interview in which questions regarding specific skill set and background were asked. A knowledge of GAAP was required and ideally some experience in the field of accounting was neccessary. A working knowledge of Excel Spreadsheets, Quickbooks and how to initiate an audit was preferred.
I was able to negotiate the salary rate. Benefits were standard, non-negotiable.
