    Interview

    Met the recruiter at a career fair on campus. Got a call for a phone interview a month later. Proceeded to final round at the Crowe office in Chicago, for an interview with a manager and a partner. It took a really long time to hear back (about 2-3 weeks after the interview).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Crowe Horwath (DeKalb, IL (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed on our campus, received a call from the director the next day and was offered a position. She told me that I would be a great fit and that I would work in the oak brook office. The Partners were friendly and seemed like really good people. I am naturally a good interviewer so I did not have any problems. If you are shy or not so good, speak up, think through your answers and you will rock. Good luck!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you questioned a authority figure.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Technically I have yet to accept it but I am pretty sure I am going to accept. Not negotiating, I know how much friends were offered by the firm, I am happy if I am offered what they were offered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Crowe Horwath (Oak Brook, IL (US)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Moves slowly as there are several layers of interviews. First there is a phone interview with an HR type person, then you will have another phone interview with a manager. Finally, you will have multiple in person interviews with several of the senior managers and partner. I applied online for an open position through the Crowe website. However, I have referred several canidates through our referral program and its generally an easier process if you know someone within the company that can refer you.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most difficult situation you encounterd and how did you soove the problem?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really isnt much of a negotiation. The partner calls you with the offer and either you accept or ask for more money. Typically, they do a good job of giving you what they think is fair.
