Accounting Interview Questions


It’s all about the numbers! If you are a player of the numbers game or you are trying to get into it – we can help you get there.

Accounting interviews can be tricky – it’s not like they can ask you to complete an income statement in the interview so the questions can be a little trickier in order to try and see how skilled you are in this game of numbers.

Of course there are various different types of Accounting Jobs such as:

  • Account Receivables/Payables
  • General Ledger
  • Credit Analysis etc.

If we ran through all of the individual interview questions for each sector – we’d be here for a while. Our plan today is to give you a quick checklist of all of the general accounting interview questions so that all you need to do after that is run through the interview questions specific to your sector.
