    ICAS Training Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Haines Watts (Glasgow, Scotland) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed at the Glasgow office in June 2017 after applying through the ICAS website. Relatively easy interview, just went over my CV, asked about my background and tried to gauge how I would handle working and studying for the ICAS qualification at the same time. I think not having an accredited accounting degree went against me as the interviewer kept bringing it up. The interviewer wasn't all that prepared either, seemed a little nervous.

    Asked for feedback after I got an email saying I hadn't been successful but never heard from them again.
