    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Grant Thornton (Tulsa, OK (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One 30 minute interview with one employee. Very relaxed interview. He told me a lot about the position and asked very generic questions. The interviewer was very personable and seemed to care a lot about me and my interests. The recruiter sat outside the room and once I left she talked to me about my experience and was very upfront with when I was to be hearing from them on the outcome of the interview. Very quick turn around as I heard back 2 days later that I had been accepted into the program.

    Interview Questions

    • More about myself and what I wanted to do in the future than anything.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Told me I got accepted into the program and I said yes to their invitation.

    Application

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Grant Thornton (Camden, NJ (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process was relatively smooth. Three rounds of interviews - over the phone with the HR recruiter and Director. Then in-person with Director, Partner, Senior Associate and a PM (contractor). Mostly behavioral questions except from the PM - he asked several technical questions.

    Although the interviews were ok, I experienced a couple of issues -

    1. The recruiter failed to provide details about the interview location and contact person. They also failed to cover expenses (tolls and parking). I'm also interviewing with a Big 4 firm and they provided a contact person at the location and also offered to cover my mileage to the interview.

    2. I received no post interview feedback at all (for any round). It's been about a 1.5 weeks since the last interview and I reached out to the recruiter and got no response. Again the Big 4 recruiter provided immediate feedback after my Director interview.

    3. I didn't receive any background info on who I was supposed to be interviewing with (GT Director and Partner). The Big 4 recruiter provided extensive bios on both the Director and Partner. It's nice to know a little something about who you're going to be speaking with so that way you can try and form a connection.

    I guess those are the little things that a Big 4 more desirable to work for.

    Interview

    They just ask about general quetions, such as why GT, why this role. And then, it is about competency-based questions. It is a recorded video interview. So, you can choose the time you feel comfortable to do the interview. It lasted about half an hour. I would suggest to dress like the formal face to face interview and have a make up.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Standard online question process, followed by numerical and verbal reasoning tests. 'Digital interview' test with competency-based questions, quite a surreal experience. This was followed by an assessment centre with involved a group case-study, followed by a partner interview about the case study and a final interview. Not as stressful as I expected, the final interview was particularly relaxed and I was able to find out a lot more about the firm.
