    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.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Grant Thornton (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    One day single interview with two people. About 30 minutes each where they give a description of what the job would be like and how your position would contribute to the group. Give tour of the office, meet a couple people. None of the questions are too difficult, they love Excel skills and organization. Deadlines and attention to detail are important, they make this clear.
