    Assurance Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school website, received a follow-up call less than a week after the application deadline, and had my first interview a couple days later. The first interview was mostly behavioral-based and revolved around teamwork experience. At the end of the interview, the recruiter said he wanted to bring me into the office for interviews, which was scheduled for a couple weeks later. I interviewed with a manger and a senior manager, who were both extremely friendly. These "interviews" were more like conversations and very comfortable. I think at that point, they were just trying to see if I'd be a good fit. Two days later, I got the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I was never asked any technical questions, but as mentioned above, there were a lot of questions regarding teamwork. I had to pull from a few different experiences so I wasn't repeating myself.   Answer Question

    Audit Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Met with two people (both who arrived late as I was the first interview of the day), ended up spending about 5 minutes with one and 5 minutes with the other instead of a full interview. As it was, I had no time to really ask any questions nor really be asked any questions. Interviewers seemed to dismiss me before they even walked in the room (given how late they were). In short, I was not terribly impressed.

    Audit Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very laid back. I had done the ELP so I was already familiar with the recruiters (and they were familiar with me). My interview process was just if I had any questions and they simply prepped me for the office visit. At the office visit, we had a meet and greet with several staff at breakfast, an interview with a senior manager, lunch, then interview with a partner. I found out a few weeks later that I was offered an internship, and I accepted! From friends going through the interview process, I heard that the initial interviews (prior to the office visit) were strictly behavioral based.

    FSO Audit Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two 30 minute on campus interviews. I was told I would be notified by the following day, but was actually never notified. Both interviewers seemed disinterested in the whole process and they were more interested in going back to the office to finish their work for the day. I didn't leave the interview with a great feeling about the firm, and the lack of communication thereafter further made me disinterested in working for EY.
