    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cardiff, Wales
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP (Cardiff, Wales) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The first stage of the application process is answering some questions on your initial application, such as why Grant Thornton etc. You then complete a strengths assessment and get your results via email within a few days. If you pass this round you receive a phone call informing you they are going to email you a link to a digital interview. I personally didn’t like the digital interview as it was impersonal and didn’t allow me to showcase my abilities, it was strength based questions that weren’t 100% relevant to the role, followed by a small essay on a case study. If you pass the digital interview you might be invited to half a day at the office you applied to for tasks and an interview with a partner there.

    Interview Questions

    • Just strength based questions. None of the questions found on wikijobs came up for me.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP (Glasgow, Scotland) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Simple online form followed by a video interview. Video interview asks six questions and you get two minutes to prepare your answer followed by a set amount of time to record your answer. One answer requires a written response instead of a recorded one. You are allowed unlimited practices with practice questions, but only one attempt at the real recorded answer.

    I was unsuccessful at this stage, however, I received a feedback call from GT to discuss my video interview and how I could improve my answers in future.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself?
      Q: What do you expect to be doing day-to-day in your role?
      Q: Why GT?
      Q: A few competency questions (showing initiative, leadership, team skills for example)   Answer Question

    Filled in a quick online form before being invited to take part in the digital interview. There were 5 verbal questions and a written question. After this I had a follow-up interview over telephone, which was difficult although they were slightly lenient considering they called me 10 minutes late! Following the telephone interview I was subsequently sent an invitation to the online tests where I was ultimately unsuccessful.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP in December 2015.

    Interview

    There were several interviews that were a part of the application process. The first interview was a digital interview that would be recorded and sent over to the recruitment staff itself. It was recommended to get a good quality camera so they would be able to clearly see your face and see how you conducted yourself within the interview ( your demeanour and how you have presented yourself). As well as a good camera, you had to make sure your mic was clear and picked up your voice successfully as this was the main aspect of the interview that was required - I went ahead and bought myself a mic headset to absolutely make sure that I was heard. This interview had all pre-recorded questions and was an interview on how you would respond to these. It was recommended to test the practice questions, these allowed you to be recorded and play it back to see where you struggled - knowing this I made sure to use bandi cam to record the whole interview process so that I could rewatch it afters and critique myself of where I may have messed up and could talk about this in the follow up phone call. Once you started the official interview you were not allowed to redo the questions, or rewatch yourself. You had several minutes to talk about the question that was pre-recorded - you do not have to fill the whole time you can click the button as to when you finish that questions. Better to be clear and concise than to over talk. The next interview process was at the final stage of the application process and you would go through two interviews with the managers/partners within the firm. It would be random what way round you had the interviews - depending on the timetable that is designated. The first interview I had was a personal interview where you spoke about your grades and aims in life that actually was more of a casual conversation rather than a sell yourself or interrogation. The last interview I had was in response to the case study I had completed that day - I was honest with how I felt the day went and spoke about the issues of the case study ( we had to find issues within the case study client and create some solution or talk about our solutions during the interview). I do not have much experience when it comes to interviews as I had just finished school but I do feel that as long as you are confident you will be able to complete them.
