    Business Advisor Program- Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    30 minute 1st Round Interview on Campus with an alumnus of my university. Was supposed to be largely behavioral, but once I started asking questions about the structured product he works with, it got more technical.

    2nd Round- 3 interviews (2 behavioral, 1 case study) in office
    The 1st behavioral was with someone who had been at the comapny for 3 months, so that was an interesting perspective. He had a highly varied background before joining as a consultant. All behavioral and questions about myself/resume.

    2nd Interview was a case study. It was formatted in a weird way. They gave us the case (3 pages, and no data whatsoever, just a story), and we read it, took notes and then roleplayed as consultant (me) and client (EY professional). Perhaps the case was weird, the interviewer was weird, or I wasn't getting it, but based on interviewer reactions and other student testimonials, it is not hard to do well

    3rd Interview- Almost all fit questions about becoming a consultant. Much more consulting oriented than the finance focus that campus recruiters had pitched to us. Hardest interview, largely because I didn't know what to expect and interviewer was keen to dig at that.

    Interview Questions
    • 3rd Interview:

      "So I have a client. And based on some new regulation, his compliance department has to start putting out [insert trade resolution document here]. But the people, led by their compliance officer, don't want to intergrate this into their process. So right now the lawyers and our team are prepping them to be compliant when the rule is phased in, but how do I fix this problem:"

    Business Advisory Program Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    First round interview is conducted on campus. One behavior interview and most of the questions are about what you listed on the resume. After that, there was an online writing test. Second round interview was in the office and the company paid all the travel and hotel stays. Three back to back interviews and each is one hour long. Two are typical behavior and one is a case. All interviewers are at senior management level. The case wasn't a typical case done by a consulting firm and the case topic more related to the type of financial advisory E&Y does. Learned that I got the offer one week later from the call by HR and had two weeks to decide.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was at my school. A very basic behavioral interview. Basically I was just asked to walk through my resume and describe experiences I had. Second round was in New York office and consisted of another behavioral interview similar to the first round, a case interview, and a situational interview where I was asked what I would do as an employee or manager in certain situations.

Basically just talked about the resume and asked behavioral questions such as what is a time you failed and what did you do to fix it and what if a member in your team was not doing there work, how would you approach them. Then had to do a writing sample on my own. Didnt get the offer though

    Business Advisory Program Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through my on-campus career services. Upon arriving to the interview I was greeted by an employee that had graduated from my school. I got to talk to the greeter for about 15 minutes before my interview and he was very helpful with answering questions about the internship and company. The interview was very laid back and casual. The interviewer found ways to incorporate the behavioral questions into regular conversation which was helpful and more relaxing.
