    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 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round is on-campus which is all behavioral and friendly. Next round is at the Alpharetta office where you get to stay at a hotel and have a pre-interview dinner. The following day is 3 rounds of interviews, back-to-back. All behavioral questions again. They are very big on personality and getting to know who you are. After the 3 roundsSo it's more about personality matching than whether you've got what it takes to do the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Many questions on how you resolved a team conflict and how you deal with people in your team/position of authority. A lot of the questions overlapped between the 3 interviewers.Tried to give different examples for the same questions but ended up telling the same stories a few times   Answer Question

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

    2 rounds, one on campus and one in the office you are applying. The first round was very much about the fit and personality of the individual; try to explain why you fit the position and the company's culture. Be very conversational; don't memorize what you are going to say, don't be scripted. The second round is more about fitting into the position and some behavior questions. There is a online, timed writing assessment for this position before 1st round of interview. stay calm because you can't prepare for it. the second round has a case study that you can't prepare for also. Depending on the location, some may ask heavily behavior question in round 1 and fit questions in the second or a combination.

    Interview Questions
    • In the second round, they expect you to ask them a lot of questions, as oppose to them asking you in the first round. Prepare, prepare, prepare.   Answer Question
