Graduate, Sydney
Online assessment, video interview, assessment centre, and the one-on-one interview
Graduate, Sydney
There were two round of interviews, one with managers on the team, and the other with the partner. Interview process was very relaxed, which I liked as it made me more comfortable and allowed the interviewers to get to know me better. Interview Assessments included an online video interview and an assessment centre, which included a team based assessment and individual case study.
Graduate, Perth

Assessment Centre, Multiple interviews. Assessment had group and individual elements.
Graduate, Brisbane
I found the process to be a good experience, especially compared with other companies that i also applied to. I had to complete online assessments and interviews which were challenging but not too hard and not too time consuming like others, which was helpful as the process is typically performed whilst managing full-time university commitments. The in-person assessment centre followed this online process, which was also performed at a good level. While the three stages of the assessment were challenging enough, they still gave room for individuals to showcase their strengths.
Graduate, Sydney
Online activity, Interview with HR and then another interview with the partner.
Graduate, Cairns
4 Stages of interviewing process (General assessment to test English and Maths, Team assessment, Individual assessment and Final interview). During the period where I had my interview, it was on the pandemic so therefore everything was held through Zoom. However, the communications were clear and efficient as HR is swift in responding.
Graduate, Adelaide
Initial application, assessment centre, online interview, face to face interview
Graduate, Melbourne
The first few steps are done within a few hours. It was then a few days until I received further steps that were required, which involved a number of 'tests', which I had to do some studying for, just to make sure I did my best. The final few assessments could've been done in person or via zoom, but I chose to fly to Sydney to complete them as I wanted to give myself the best opportunity to succeed. This assessment involved a case study and presentation, an interview with a Senior Manager, and a final Q&A session.
Graduate, Sydney
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
How do you show leadership, how have you overcome adversity. General chat
Graduate, Melbourne
What attracts you to join the company
Graduate, Sydney
Tell me about yourself. What's the hardest challenge you've overcome? How do you deal with ambiguity?
Graduate, Sydney
It was why Grant Thornton, and some questions about my experiences. In partner interview I was asked about valuation methods
Graduate, Perth
Questions like 'What is a leader to you?'
Graduate, Melbourne
Conflict at work, receiving criticism from manger, how to manage multitask
Graduate, Brisbane
What I studied What I enjoy Values Service Line areas What I do outside of work hours
Graduate, Brisbane
I performed online interviews, an interview with senior managers, and an interview with the partner in my team. I found the questions to be well-aligned and fair.
Graduate, Sydney
Behavioural questions were asked during the interview and some case studies were raised in the assessment. HR specifically told us not to leak the questions as it will appear to be an imbalance in the hiring process :)
Graduate, Adelaide
General questions about strengths, weaknesses, overcoming difficulty, teamwork ability. Overall was a general conversation.
Graduate, Melbourne
From memory, it was a lot about the kind of person I am, rather than asking about achievements/accolades etc. There were also some questions about my previous experience, both in the workforce and extra curricular activities, volunteering etc.
Graduate, Sydney
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Be yourself and not too robotic
Graduate, Melbourne
Be confident
Graduate, Sydney
Research and prepare your answers for a lot of behavioural and experiential questions.
Graduate, Sydney
Make sure you know your experiences you've listed on your CV, you will probably be asked about them. Practise a lot of interview questions, and also revise a little bit of valuation methodology should you make it to partner interviews.
Graduate, Perth
Be prepared to answer basic interview questions like why this company or where do you see yourself in 5 years.
Graduate, Melbourne
Tell some past experience on how did you overcome the difficulties
Graduate, Brisbane
Read about the culture and values and see if you align. Find out about pre interview events. Try and talk to people from the company
Graduate, Brisbane
My advice would be to prepare interview answers, specific to the role you are applying for. While typical and more board interview questions were asked, I found we were asked questions quite specific to the area we applied for, even though we had selected very broad areas in the application process.
Graduate, Sydney
Expect the interview process goes for a while. As there is like 4 steps before finding out of you have got the job.
Graduate, Cairns
As cliche as it may sound, be yourself! The company appreciates people who are true to themselves and are not afraid to express their own opinions. To best prepare is to do the research of the company and find out how they relate to you.
Graduate, Adelaide
Be yourself as much as you can, you can't fake being someone in an interview because it can't last your entire career.
Graduate, Melbourne
Do research on both GT, and the people in the team you're applying for. It shows you really want the job and that you are interested.
