Graduate Position In Consulting Interview

Graduate Position In Consulting
City of London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at EY in September 2012.

Interview Details – I must say I am very disappointed with my application to e&y. I have been very serious about applying to this company, I even applied the day that the recruitment process has opened. I have been through all the stages up to an interview and I have been told I will be contacted soon as interviews start on the 10th of September. Guess what, it is 10th today and I have not been contacted by them since the beginning of July...

Interview Question – I have been surprised with how easy their online tests were. Comparing to PwC and KPMG where I have also applied these were way easier.   Answer Question

Assurance Staff Interview

Assurance Staff
Louisville, KY

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at EY in August 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was conducted by phone. Since this was the case, I was pleased with the level of care that human resources placed into the conversation. Particularly, I appreciated the questions about my concerns and interests outside of school. However, it was obvious that academics mattered substantially in the hiring process. I recommend researching all aspects of any assurance or advisory role, as well as understanding the dynamics of your location, when interviewing with E&Y.

Interview Question – Questions on leadership capacity and previous leadership experiences, as well as how others respect your potential as a leader.   Answer Question
