Advisory Senior Interview

Advisory Senior
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in April 2013.

Interview Details – Pretty straightforward and quick. Applied to job posting on website, was contacted from recruiter within 2 weeks. 3-step interview process over about 3 weeks:
1) 30 min phone call with recruiter inquiring about why I want to leave current firm, why E&Y, career goals
2) 30 min technical screening phone call with Manager consisting of behavioral questions (e.g., tell me about a time you dealt with multiple tasks/priorities, tell me about the most challenging project you were a part of, tell me how you're actively trying to learn more about the industry and make a name for yourself)
3) 3 separate in-person interviews with a Manager, Sr Manager, and Partner (each about 45 minutes) - questions were mostly behavioral, gauging interest in the job/field, and trying to determine fit within organization

Interview Question – (After Sr Manager described further some of the core functional sub-groups within the main Advisory group), which sub-group do you feel that you could contribute the most to and why?   Answer Question

Advisory Senior Interview

Advisory Senior
New York, NY

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in March 2012.

Interview Details – Initially, I was pre screened at a job fair as a younger advisory employee directed me to have a 15 mins interview with a VP who was also at the job fair. A week later I talked with an HR phone interviewer who wanted to collect salary and location expectations and preferences. After another phone interview was an on site interview where I met with 5 VPs. Not many probing questions were asked.

Advisory Senior Interview

Advisory Senior

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at EY in April 2011.

Interview Details – Initial contact was with HR who set up the interview with another individual. Pretty short interview overall. Asked me 5 questions which had little to do with the position i applied for and mostly pertained to a position I had over 6 years ago. I seemed to have more questions than they did.
