Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

Interview Details

The HR department called weeks after applying online. They wanted transcripts prior to the interview. First interview went great. The representative was friendly and easy to talk to. I received a call back but at the second interview a different representative asked a lot of tax specific questions when it was an entry level position

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was a pre-interview mixer where a partner and some managers, seniors and new hires/staff accountants mingled with the interviewees. That was pleasant good to talk with the people you are interviewing with before the interview itself, in some ways it was an interview with no pressure.
    Interview happened the next day, I had met my interviewer beforehand at the mixer.
    Questions were behavioral in nature - 'have you worked with a difficult person?'
    How do you work with teams? etc

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing specific - I have a varied background and some international work experience that has been difficult to explain to most interviewers because it falls well outside the normal work experience. So any questions relating to past work experience specific to that work were tough - I just closely linked bits of what I did to what staff accountants are expected to do or linked it to the behavioral questions 'what was a difficult work situation & how did you overcome it?' and keep it relevant to audit/accounting job requirements   Answer Question
