    After campus interview, was offered to come in for a series of in house interviews. This took the better part of the day and consisted of three one on one interviews. After the in house interviews I got a call back a week later with the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were behavioral and not technical. The hardest part was finding meaningful questions for each of the interviewers. There was a lot of time given for interviewee questions.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school career website. In about 2 weeks I received an invitation for an on-campus interview. It was a 30-minute behavioral interview with a partner. She was very friendly and welcoming. Some of the questions she asked were: Why do you want to work in consulting? Why do you want to work at EY? Tell me about a situation when you were a leader in a team? Tell me about a conflict that you experienced in a team... They called me the next day to invite for a super day on Friday. It consisted of 2 behavioral and 1 case interview. The super day started very early. I had to be in the office by 8.15am. In the beginning we had a presentation, then we were introduced to our escorts who showed around the office that day. The behavioral interviews were pretty much the same as in the first round. The case study was about a brick and mortar bank that wanted to merge with an online bank. Later we had lunch with our escorts. They took us to a nice restaurant on Times Square. We talked, ate, and had a good time. But don't be caught off guard- this is also a part of your interview. The day after the super day the recruiter called me to make an offer. they gave me 3 weeks to decide.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The first interview was held on campus with an employer from the office. This interview was very laid back and was more about getting to know me. The next step was a trip to the office for another round of interviews. I met with a manager and partner, and this was also more of a discussion about whether EY was the right fit for me. There was not any behavioral questions asked that were overly difficult to answer, and the interviewers were definitely not trying to catch you off guard or trip you up on anything.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given a case study that I was to analyze and present possible solutions to the problem. This wasn't overly difficult and the interviewer didn't really look into my answer that much.   View Answers (2)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview. Later was invited to come to the office for a networking night and an all day interview. The interviews were fairly informal and I felt like I was the one leading most of the interview. It helps to do homework about the company before hand. For example I learned about their core values and the EY connect day.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Started out with a one-on-one interview at my college campus. It was your standard behavioral interview with a focus on my plans to become CPA licensed and ready for a career in public accounting. Everyone was very friendly.

    I was invited to second round interviews at the office. The company paid for my transportation and hotel stay. I went to a pre-interview dinner, information session, and I had one interview with a senior manager. Again, it was standard behavioral and why accounting.
