Consulting Associate Interview

Consulting Associate

Interviewed at McGladrey LLP

Interview Details This is a combination of behavioral and situational interviews. Prior experience and communication skills are key. You meet with a Senior, Manager/Director and Partner. HR is nice and friendly. It's a half hour to 45 minute interview with each. They are mid market, so its essential to know specific industries and not be too demanding.

Interview Question – They will just ask you something you don't have experience with. It's how you answer that counts. Be prepared to answer questions on how you manage staff, leadership and your future career path/goals.   Answer Question

Pathways Program Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in February 2014.

Interview Details Super relaxed process. Spoke with them at my schools career fair and they asked me to interview with them at on campus interviews. I was really nervous but it was laid back. All they wanted to do was get to know you. They asked the typical questions of why McGladrey? Why not the big 4?

Interview Question – None were difficult. No behavioral based questions. Just be yourself!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was for a leadership 2 day program no negotiating.

Assurance Associate Interview

Assurance Associate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at McGladrey LLP.

Interview Details The people I spoke with, both on campus and office interviews, were incredibly nice. The conversation flowed easy, it was more about getting to know each other than reciting accounting skills or ideas I've mastered. The company defiantly tries to get people that match the company culture.

Interview Question – I was asked if I was interested in the big 4 and why I did not want to work there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I received a phone call with the offer. I asked McGladrey to email me the contract before I made any decisions. I emailed the contract once I decided to accept.

Assurance Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at McGladrey LLP in December 2011.

Interview Details Extremely disorganized recruitment process and vetting of new employees. I went for a first interview and never heard back until almost 2 months later when they were desperate for people. The day I had my second interview, the last associate in the entire office had quit. I should have stayed away.

Interview Question – The interview was mostly conversational. They ask the usual questions about your background and why you want to work there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a negotiation phase since this was an entry-level position. The firm is in collusion with other accounting firms in the area to keep all salaries for positions the same, regardless of your skill set.
