Exciting
Seattle, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

The opportunity to work with a variety of people. All of whom were helpful, encouraging, and fun to be around.


Downers

There was more downtime than I expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Moss Adams is not just about working hard. It is also about working as a team, getting to know your coworkers (both in and out of the office), and continually developing your skills. If you want to go far in auditng, Moss Adams will help you get there.


Sample Interview Questions

During the second round interviews the "questions" were meant to get an idea of your personality. There would be a routine question or two, like "why did you choose accounting," but the bulk of the interview was a short conversation.

Shannon getting her feet wet and really experiencing life as a MA staff
San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

actually getting into audits, going to the client, not just doing busy work


Downers

we did not get as many reviews as I hoped. Maybe give an evaluation once a week so we can learn and grow from it


Advice to Potential Interns

MA knows how to get and keep people. MA wants you to love to work, not HAVE to work.


Advice to Management

Maybe do more intensive hands on training. Felt very uneasy going to my first client.

Moss Adams. Go Further. Faster - Real life experience in just 8 weeks.
Irvine, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of the internship was the fact that we got to do actual work. We were treated as if we were first year staff. The compensation of $25 / hour was great.


Downers

The huge training seminar was too overwhelming. I felt as though I learned more through actual hands on work.


Advice to Potential Interns

Determine if you like the people you work with because the growth and opportunity is already there.

The Most Unforgettable Summer Of My Life
Los Angeles, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- The firm culture: the people at Moss Adams actually care about getting to know you. The partners, managers and staff care about your career development and they care about your overall experience as an intern.

- Learning about the profession: as an intern you are treated as first-year staff and get learn the fundamentals of audits and reviews for many sections of the financial statements including Cash, A/P, Fixed Assets, etc.. Some sections are challenging but staff is always there and ready to help!

- The social activities: interns have the opportunity to expand their professional network on trips to Disneyland and Catalina Island with the firm, training at Huntington Beach and Partner Dinners and BBQ's all around L.A.

- My intern class: I walked in to the office on my first day with 12 strangers that over the past 8 weeks have become some of my best friends.


Downers

- LA Traffic. It comes with living in the city.


Advice to Potential Interns

- Work hard in school, do your research on the firm before Meet the Firms/interviews and just be yourself!

Great mentor/buddy program that provided solid career advising
Tacoma, WA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great people, culture, and work place environment. The FT employees are more than willing to give you any advice need and take a genuine interest in your career.


Downers

I wish I spent more time with my career advisor, I did not meet with her once.


Advice to Potential Interns

Start right away connecting with the FT employees of the office and try to find a mentor on your own. That person is a valuable resource that I continue to use even after the internship has ended.
