I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EY.
it was very casual, a few conversational interviews with no technical questions whatsoever. They flew me to the office i was to work in, put me up in a hotel, and everything.

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at EY.
First round on campus interview was with a partner who was very welcoming and friendly. I had a great conversation with her and I got to the second round office visit. That interview consisted of three 30 minute interviews, one partner and 2 managers. The partner didn't seem like she had prepared anything at all to ask me, and it was an awkward 30 minutes of slow, pointless questions. I didn't feel like she cared to be speaking with me at all. I wasn't surprised that I didn't get the offer, even though the other 2 interviews went alright.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at EY.
I was contacted by someone recruiting for the role and had several back and forth email exchanges before 'official' interviews began. There were 2 phone interviews and 1 Skype interview, generally one week apart. There was then one more Skype HR interview. An offer was made very shortly after the final HR interview, but the process from start to offer took about 3 months. They are very interested in making sure you are a good fit for them, and they are a good fit for you. I was asked for some references fairly early on in the process, and well as a written statement regarding how I can see myself contributing to the firm. Other than that, it was a pretty standard interview process. Most questions were targeted to the actual role and balanced between hard skills/previous experience and personality/thought process.

It was a phone interview. Firstly, we went over my resume starting from the education section, to work experience. Then, the interviewer asked questions about my work experiences and what i can bring to EY from the last company I worked for. And questions about whether I am pursuing a CPA license and my qualification to do so upon graduation.

go through your resume first, then very basic and short questions just like normal interviews. why we hire, why do you want to apply this job. The pace is really fast. But it is very friendly. you need to prepare a lot of questions. Anyway, it is not hard. But you need to make yourself stand out.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at EY (Baltimore, MD) in May 2015.
The office visiting began with a short tour of the office. HR gave a brief presentation of the company's mission, culture and major business in this office. The interview included two rounds, first with an executive director, second with a partner. The executive director was nice and easy-going. We went through the resume, and asked me several behavioral questions. The partner was more serious and didn't feel like talking too much. He just asked me questions without too much interaction with me.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.
I interviewed during the EY Leadership Program (ELP) and it consisted of 3, 30 minute interviews with a senior manager, a manager, and a partner. The ELP program was 2 days long and required its own interview process. To give some context, I am a rising college junior. We interviewed in the morning on the second day and I got a call from the partner I interviewed with the next morning. The offer was formally emailed out within the following week. Great experience.
- Very conversational with mostly very generic questions asked. Tell me about a time you demonstrated leadership? We talked about summer plans and college life mostly. Very friendly interviewers. Answer Question
