    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Texas State (San Marcos, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was relatively usual for an Accounting position. Typical interview questions with a group, past experiences, technical experience, where you see yourself. After, there was a 3 part reconciliation and a general knowledge test. Hiring process takes about 3 weeks, two weeks for interviews and a week or so for approvals. After they make their decision, it has to go through various offices and a background check before they offer.
