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

    Interview

    The interview is very laid back. They want to know about who you are and what you want to accomplish if you joined their team. There were two 30-minute 'interviews' that were all about talking to an associate and a partner about the company. They did not ask too many 'interview' questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at McGladrey LLP in October 2015.

    Interview

    The location I applied for had a great office environment. I had two interviews which lasted a little over an hour (total). It felt like we were having a conversation rather than an interview. They wanted to get to know me and see if my character would be a fit for their team. We found common interests and carried conversations through that. My suggestion is to research the company and ask as many questions as you can. That way you can get a better understanding if they're a great fit for you, and vice-versa. After the interview was over, I was given a quick tour of the office and an opportunity to meet other employees. Everyone was really nice and welcoming. A week later, HR emailed me my acceptance.
