"I think the reason individuals choose to come to Keiter and stay at Keiter is because the work is challenging and rewarding, the benefits are fantastic, and more than anything I think it’s the people we work with."

- Colin Hannifin, Business Assurance & Advisory Services Supervisor

At Keiter, we thrive on providing insights and creating opportunities for our clients, staying on top of industry trends, and helping one another. Day-to-day activities and tasks vary depending on the time of year, the department in which you work, and your level of experience.

Our professionals work in an environment that is focused on everyone’s success.

Careers Outside of Finance & Accounting?

Keiter offers a variety of career choices in fields outside of accounting. We have several departments staffed by highly qualified professionals in the following areas: Information Technology, Human Resources, Marketing, Finance and Administration. At various times, depending on our needs and growth, these departments seek highly motivated, client-focused individuals to build a career at Keiter.


"Everyone at Keiter is encouraged to use flexible scheduling to meet personal needs as long as it doesn't interefere with client needs.  

During the summer when we have half day Fridays, many employees choose to add an hour each day Monday-Thursday to take off Friday without using paid time off.

Year round, many employees take a 2 hour lunch break to de-stress at the gym. Others come early, or choose to sleep in and work late. All levels of client service professionals are afforded the ability to work at home.  No questions asked.

The focus is really on results - not just for upper management but for all employees.  This really sets a tone of respect from the moment you walk in the door."

    I have been working at Keiter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I began working at Keiter several months ago and it has been an absolute pleasure thus far. Keiter truly does care about its employees and it shows in our partners' flexibility and the genuine interest they take in your life. But what I appreciate most is the professionalism and proficiency of my coworkers. If you want to be part of a well-oiled machine, Keiter is an excellent option.

    Cons

    A lack of formalized training in some departments means a slow start.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Keiter (Blacksburg, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxed and it was a bout a half hour. You talk about pass experiences and have a conversation for most of the interview. The interviewers are very friendly.
