    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    Everyone was really friendly. It was a two part interview. The first was laid back, the second the interviewer wanted you to lead the entire interview which would have been great if you hadn't asked all your questions in the first interview so definitely research the company and have a lot of questions prepared.
