Lyon (France)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at EY in November 2012.

Interview Details I have been recruited on campus. During the recruiting day I had a group work and an individual interview. The group work simulated a meeting of a press board for deciding the main articles of a newspaper. We had to come up with a list of articles in a given timeframe. The individual interview focused on professional attitude, work experience, language skills. Fairly relaxed interview.

Audit Staff Interview

Anonymous Employee
Provo, UT (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at EY in October 2011.

Interview Details Interviews were done on campus and were very laid back. No technical questions were asked and they were more concerned with how well I worked in teams than my technical knowledge of the relevant material. I interned with people who hadn't even had an audit class yet, but were doing an internship in assurance (audit). If you have a positive attitude and work hard, they will be interested in you.

Interview Question – What would you say is your biggest flaw   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They were not willing to negotiate price or bonus, as what they offered was pretty standard across all the big 4 firms. I would still recommend making an effort to negotiate.
