    Advisory Staff Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting system and on-campus recruiting event. Had a first round interview a week later, and heard back about second round 4 weeks later. The first round was walking through resume and behavioral questions, followed by questions to ask the interviewer. The interviewer was a manager and the conversation was quite relaxed.

    Audit Interview

    Interview Details

    Was selected for a first round interview, the interviewer insisted that the process be more like a conversation than a behavioral interview. As such, the interview turned about to be a more about s discussion of myself than my resume. Was selected for a second round interview which consisted of a pre-interview dinner and a superday the following the day. The dinner was essentially a chance for the applicants to get to know the firm better and the superday was excellent. Interviewed by a senior manager and a partner both of whom were incredibly friendly and their questions were fairly simple, "Why audit," "tell me about a time when.." and etc. Left after a lunch with a new staffer. Excellent interview process and everyone at the firm helped you feel welcomed.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview which lasted about 20-30 minutes. It was my first interview with the firm. All questions were technical; there was very little "get to know you". Questions were regarding cash flows, valuation, and other financial topics. The interviewer was very direct, and efficient. Overall, very good experience, I was just a little surprised with the lack of small talk/introductions.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through campus recruiting. I was interviewed with a partner. The interview was very casual and conversational. He didn't ask me a lot of questions. My suggestion is that you just need to prepare some basic questions such as leadership, teamwork and communication etc. I hope it helps!
