TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"As a Controller, I run many accounting reports throughout the month to monitor financial performance and to ensure prompt completion of day-to-day accounting functions. In addition to month-end financial statements and monthly summary reports, other reports include a daily activity report the summarizes total labor dollars for the day, how labor was used operationally for that day, total daily sales, and total goods shipped."
Example #2
"In my first year as an accountant, my job duties have included reviewing the daily cash report to ensure daily balancing of the cash book against the Open A/R report, and that cash received from customers is applied to paid invoices. I'm also responsible for managing the Goods Received Invoice Received report, or GRIR, on the purchasing and payable side. This report verifies that purchased items have been received and will be reflected as an expense on the income statement and not stay on the balance sheet in the liability GRIR account."
Example #3
"As the Controller, I was responsible for overseeing month and year-end duties for my previous company. I was responsible for handling the IRS tax filings for the company and ensuring all Financial Reports submitted to investors and the public were accurate before they were published for public knowledge."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
