Entry level position interviews are mostly an assessment of personality, fit, and a judgement of overall capability. They will be assessing your ability to articulate your answers. Do you think through the questions and how quickly can you from a legitimate response. Do you come across as intelligent? Do you come across as a hard worker? These kinds of items are difficult to assess, but this is really what they are looking for.

Agree with Steve. As for my many interviews, if they ask accounting questions, it is the very basic questions: things like debits on the left, credits on the right, and accruals and journal entries. They also often ask what my level of Microsoft EXCEL capability is.
