    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?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was extremely laid-back and was an extension of the conversation I had previously had with the partner. Some of the usual questions about my resume, but most of the time I spent asking him questions. The entire process seems to be a feeling out and finding the proper "fit" between myself and McGladrey. No technical questions were asked.

    Consulting Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at McGladrey LLP.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview. I acutally received an offer directly after the single, phone-based interview. I turned it down as I wanted to meet/speak with other people in the organization who I would be working with and so that I had time to conduct my own due dilligence activities. Over the course of another 6-weeks during which I spoke with a number of other people both directly and by phone, I was told that I had the position but that a starting point would be contingent upon available work closing. The process became a back and forth conversation for the subsequent 6 months until another formal offer was made and we negotiated an agreement.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions that I found to be particularly difficult nor unexpected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly short with me turning down the 2nd offer and then negotiating to a mutually agreeable solution.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McGladrey LLP in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two different people. The first being someone who was high up in auditing (I'm not sure if he was a partner or not), and the second being someone in HR. The entire process took about 30-40 minutes. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I applied online and then I called a few days later to ask if they were hiring, and I got an interview.
