    My interview process went very smooth. I would say that networking is the most important thing you can do. If the interviewers REALLY like you and you have some sort of experience with leadership, communication, and working with teams, there is no reason why you shouldn't get an offer.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Submitted a resume through my college career center. I did not spend much time networking with professionals from EY so it seems that first round interviews come to all with a decent GPA (3.5+). This was my first real interview so it was very rough. Interview was one on one, right as we introduced ourselves to each other the interviewers cell phone went off. The rest of the interview consisted of behavioral questions and simple chatting.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions. All behavioral questions including things like "give a time when you led a team". Questions regarding my resume also occured. He ended the interview asking if I am a part of any organizations outside of school.   Answer Question

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

    Interview Details

    First round of interviews was just one 30 minute interview. This was mainly just a conversation, I was very surprised that he did not ask me a lot of questions, I think the purpose was mainly to see if I was a good fit and could hold a conversation.

    Final round was an office interview. Consisted of two behavioral (asked the normal behavioral questions) and a case (which was pretty straight forward, Identify the risks you see with their current operations...).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on campus recruiting, got first round on campus interview, then flew to have second round interview in office. All questions were behavioral/about your resume. Talking with other interviewees, I think it was a consensus that the first round interview was actually more difficult and more serious while the second round superday interviews were more laid-back. So if you get an in-office interview, know that your chances are pretty good!
