    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I got into it as part of the on campus recruiting so its pretty much the same I would think for any other company. Since my school was a target school the interview itself wasn't all that tough. All you really have to do is have a decent resume and an academic track record that shows you are going to get all your accounting credits done before graduation and you are pretty much in. Of course this is assuming that you are articulate, polite, and present yourself as a professional young adult. First round involved handing in our resume at the college career fair, then they invited about 100 of us to a get together. Some of us are then called for an informal interview that involved dinner with a partner and some of their other practices. Those of us called back were called into the office where we were interviewed with other people in management. I got another partner and two senior managers. Then you just wait and they will inform you if you got in.

    Audit Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was started by a friend passing my resume onto the recruiter. After a couple emails exchanged with the recruiter, she instructed me to apply for the internship during the normal application window. I was subsequently invited to interview. There were two rounds of interviews: The first round was held on campus and questions were generally behavioral with a little bit of small talk mixed in. The second round was at the office, where I was provided with my own office-room, and one-at-a-time, was interviewed by two different employees (1 Staff; 1 Senior).

    Overall, the interview was not bad at all. They basically just want to make sure that you are human and can hold a normal conversation, as you will spending many, many hours locked in a cozy conference room with your coworkers.

    Perception Notes: The main office has a very corporate setting, but you won't be spending much of your time there anyways. As an audit intern, most of your time will be spent at the client site, in which, the setting of each client differs.

Typical phone interview asking about yourself and your experiences. Then going into detail about the job and hiring process in general. I was then asked back for an interview with a manager, which was scheduled within a few days form the initial phone interview. Went in for the interview and met with the manager. Talked for about 30 minutes. She then went in to get one of the partners and spoke with him briefly. Then two other partners joined. Interview went very well.
