We used to be like every other firm. We’d talk about our 150 years of heritage. We’d wear grey suits and sit inside our dull offices with no work-life balance. It all felt a bit humdrum!

One day we asked why? Then came the CP ... Read more

    AAT Accounts Apprenticeship (Pensions Audit Team) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Castle Donington, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cooper Parry (Castle Donington, England) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I firstly received an email asking to arrange a telephone call, the call was very casual and the interviewer just wanted to know a little more about myself and what I wanted from the role. I was then invited to an interview the following week, it was very informal and the interviewers made me feel very comfortable, you feel as though you're just having a conversation. They didn't ask any trick or scary questions and the whole interview was very calm and not stressful at all. I then received a call the following day telling me I'd been accepted for a second interview in the same week! This interview was with the head of the pensions department and an audit manager. It was again, pretty much the same thing with maybe a few more questions as to what I expected from the role and what I knew of the culture of the business. It was slightly more nerve-wracking as it was the final step in the process, however, the interviewers, again, made you feel very comfortable and had more of a conversation with you rather than firing questions. All in all, it was the most enjoyable interview I'd probably ever been to.

    Interview Questions

    • Very typical interview questions such as what I expected from the role, what I thought the job entails, and questions about myself, my educational background and my hobbies.   1 Answer
