Senior Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BDO (New York, NY (US)) in May 2016.

Interview

In person interview with three different interviewers. 30 minute rounds of One-on-one interviews with each interviewer. The interviewers were overly aggressive about the candidates being able to devote their personal time to the company. Made the job seem a lot more demanding than it probably would have been. Cold, "all-business" interviewers honestly made the job very undesirable.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BDO (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)).

    Interview

    If they are very interested in you, it takes them as fast as one week to arrange an interview with the relevant head of department. The job offer may come as fast as one week later.

    The interviewer tends to test your personality to ensure that you are a correct fit to the company. They may require you to write an essay.
