Paralegal Interview

Paralegal

I applied online and interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – Submitted my application and heard back in a week. I did an initial phone call before being asked to office for an in-person interview. The woman on the phone was in HR and while she knew the manager's preference was not overly familiar with job specifics. The phone call was pretty standard and nothing surprising was asked. Pretty much they were just checking that you were alive and could speak coherently about your experience.

Interview Question – The interviewer wanted to know experiences that set me apart from other applicants.   Answer Question

EY Advisory Quest Program Interview

EY Advisory Quest Program

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – Applied for the position through my university job posting and got an on campus first round interview. All behavioral questions you would expect. The interview was around 45 minutes and was much easier than I expected. A couple days later I got an email inviting me to final rounds. Instead of an office visit final round interview, it was in a conference center which was different but somewhat convenient. Had three interviews each around an hour long. Two were behavioral and one was a case. The interviewers were very good at keeping a straight face. I couldn't tell if I was doing well or not.

Interview Question – The case wasn't too bad in my opinion except the interviewer didn't give any feedback orally or through facial expressions. It was hard to tell whether or not I was doing well.   Answer Question

Senior Manager Interview

Senior Manager
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in March 2014.

Interview Details – Very professional and formal process. I liked the formality and thoroughness. They made me feel very important and comfortable. The actual interview process was somewhat cold and removed, though. They were more interested in technicalities than my personality and whether or not I would be a good fit. Some of the questions seemed like they were testing technical competence rather whether or not I would be a good fit.

Interview Question – Post-interview process very distant and removed. Nothing like the pre-interview process.   Answer Question
