    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    First, there was a resume screen followed by a 1:1 interview with a senior manager, who primarily asked "walk me through your resume" and follow-up questions. A few weeks after that, there was a social with hors d'oeuvres the night before the interview. The interview day included three interviews with ascending levels of management, including a break for lunch and a brief presentation about EY and why we should work for them. It lasted from about 9am until 3:30pm.

    The entire interview process focused on fit. You're going to be working with some of these people late at night, and you have to ensure that you like them and they like you. It felt very similar to fraternity rush, just more professional. Shake plenty of hands, make small talk, shine your shoes and press your suit and you will be fine if you have made it past the first round.

    Interview Details

    It is a conversational interview, the partner asked for the information which he wanted to know very randomly, barely behavioral questions. And there is another round of manager interview, which contained more behavioral questions and walking through the resume.

    Audit Interview

    Interview Details

    Was selected for a first round interview, the interviewer insisted that the process be more like a conversation than a behavioral interview. As such, the interview turned about to be a more about s discussion of myself than my resume. Was selected for a second round interview which consisted of a pre-interview dinner and a superday the following the day. The dinner was essentially a chance for the applicants to get to know the firm better and the superday was excellent. Interviewed by a senior manager and a partner both of whom were incredibly friendly and their questions were fairly simple, "Why audit," "tell me about a time when.." and etc. Left after a lunch with a new staffer. Excellent interview process and everyone at the firm helped you feel welcomed.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews. one is on campus the other is on side
    The on campus one is pretty causal, just make the interviewer know you better. The on side one is pretty stressful. Two interviewers, back to back, asking very detail questions about any kind of things. Also went through the resume as well. But I don't think they really care about what you answers are. At the first 30 seconds, they have decided NOT YOU.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through campus recruiting. I was interviewed with a partner. The interview was very casual and conversational. He didn't ask me a lot of questions. My suggestion is that you just need to prepare some basic questions such as leadership, teamwork and communication etc. I hope it helps!

    referred by friend through the employee referral program. Got an phone interview two days later. Basically went through my resume and asked about my future career plan and why i chose accounting and E&Y. Rejected one week after the interview. The whole process was very quick and i do think it is because of the employee referral program.
