    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer just went through my resume and chatted with me. Only few behavioral questions about leadership, teamwork. And we talked about how to solve team disagreement and what is the most difficult projects I ever had and how I came through. After this, he gave me some time to ask him about my questions about EY

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting system and on-campus recruiting event. Had a first round interview a week later, and heard back about second round 4 weeks later. The first round was walking through resume and behavioral questions, followed by questions to ask the interviewer. The interviewer was a manager and the conversation was quite relaxed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took longer than I expected, but was a fairly simple process overall.

    1) Reached out by an EY recruiter in the beginning regarding the nature of the position and a discussion of the type of work involved.

    2) Next step was a phone interview with a Manager/Senior Manager about the practice in general, type of people they are looking for, and further in-depth discussion of the types of opportunities within the practice

    3) Final part of the process was in person interviews, each lasting anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult. It seemed to be purely a behavioral interview. As in, is this someone I would want to work with on a daily basis, especially late nights, and would they make a great impression on the client.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EY in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter had my resume from previous campus communication with EY and contacted me with a phone interview. A few weeks later, I was invited to have an in-office interview with some senior managers and a partner. The interview took all day as it was made up of 3 separate interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • One interviewer asked me no questions, but made me interview her with questions I had about the position. I had asked so many questions already that day, it was difficult to come up with more questions to ask.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I was hired & recruited through the on campus interview process.

    There were many hosted events - presentations, meet & greets, job fairs, etc - that were important to attend to network and connect with potential interviewers and co-workers.

    When I submitted my application and resume for consideration, I already felt like I had a great sense of the people and culture & solid relationships to build upon.

    There were several rounds of in person campus interviews, in office interviews (I was interviewing at a location different from my school, so they flew us in for a day), and phone interviews with various levels of individuals in the organization.

    It was a very holistic process. Each interaction counted and people really remembered the things we'd talked about in prior meetings. The recruiters are great relationship builders.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have any difficult or unexpected questions. From my experience, the interview process was a vetting of cultural fit more than it was of expertise or knowledge. They didn't ask much about the things that could be gathered from reading your resume. There were no essays or strange questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They make a standard offer. They tend to be below the industry average. I had other offers in hand that were higher and asked them to match the other offers. They agreed without even asking for proof of the other offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    phone interview (screening) with recruiter, then with a manager. Invited to Superday, where I was intereviewed by 4 senior managers and a Partner. Don't really have a lot of time to ask questions or go too much into detail in 30 minute interviews, but got the feeling they were more interested in learning if you are the right fit and can be "developed".

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EY in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with an HR representative asking very basic information regarding previous jobs, salary expectations, current salary, etc. Week later phone interview with a Manager. It was in-depth conversation with some behavioral questions and some technical questions. They want to get a sense of whether or not you like this particular field and whether or not you would fit in their team. One day later HR rep scheduled a superday at the NY office. 6 1:1 interviews with managers, directors, and staff. Standard behavioral questions, but they really dug deep on technical questions. I couldn't answer most of the technical stuff because my knowledge and expertise is simply not up to their level, but they just want to see how you react to these types of situations. They are looking for enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Two weeks later I get a phone call from the hiring manager explaining that they liked me a lot and the feedback was very positive and they continued the job offer process for about two more weeks of filling out paperwork and various forms. About four weeks after I interviewed at the superday they email me the offer letter.

    I went over and beyond with interview preparation and research. I honestly do not think I would have gotten this far without going at least 110%.

    Interview Questions
    • What exactly do you do at your current job? It appears you do little to no analysis with the model.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate, but I assume the more experience you have the better your chances are, but EY is a very structured company so salaries at each level have minimums and maximums, so be prepared and you should expect what you deserve.
