    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the campus recruitment. Received first round interview right after the career fair and invited to pre-night social event. Heard back for 2nd round in a week and going to the office next week!

    Interview Questions
    • 1st round is pretty much all about behavior questions, they have a sheet of questions to go through. Some interviewers might be very conversational but mine is all behaviors. e.g.: Tell me about yourself, tell me a time when you have some difficulties in a team. 2nd round is consist of a case and two behavior questions but I heard the case isn't too hard. Just have the basic framework (e.g.: SWOT) in mind and you should be good to go.   View Answer

    Audit Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed first on campus. Interview with Manager and a Senior Associate sat in on the conversation and "hosted" me during the on campus activities (pre-interview reception, waiting for the interview in the career services office). The on campus interview had a lot of behavioral questions, and the interviewer appeared to be filling out a form while I was answering.

    Invited to the second round interview in the office. There were upwards of 100 candidates interviewing throughout the day, so it was a sort of unusual environment. Interviewed with one partner, who asked general resume review questions. He was really interested in what specific position I saw myself fitting in at EY.

    FSO Audit Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two 30 minute on campus interviews. I was told I would be notified by the following day, but was actually never notified. Both interviewers seemed disinterested in the whole process and they were more interested in going back to the office to finish their work for the day. I didn't leave the interview with a great feeling about the firm, and the lack of communication thereafter further made me disinterested in working for EY.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EY in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    A basic behavioral interview set-up. The recruiter had a list of behavior questions printed out in front of him and asked a few questions from that list. I don't think I had a lot of chemistry with the interviewer, honestly.

    Assurance Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    During my office visit, I was interviewed first by a manager, then a senior manager, and finally a partner.

    The interview style was pretty casual. The interviewer had a couple of questions that they had jotted down, but mostly we just talked.

    Your resume and on-campus interviews get you in the door for the interview. Once you are at the office visits, relax and just act personable, ask good questions, and indicate your interest in the internship and why you think you would be an excellent candidate. If you do all of that well, then there is no reason why you shouldn't get an offer for an internship.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at EY in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was at an externship program and I was interviewed for the internship at the end of this program. I was interviewed by a senior manager and a partner (that were on separate teams) and they were more interested in the questions that I was asking them instead of the questions they were asking me. They asked me very general but relevant questions, such as why I want to work at Ernst & Young and also specific questions from my resume.

    Interview Details

    2 interviews - behavioral based, but you must fit the company culture. Second and final interview is 2 to 3 higher up professionals at the firm. Most people who interview are already qualified, so E/Y is looking for people who will fit the company culture. It's tough to get the job.
