    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was very relaxed and comfortable. Everyone I interviewed with was down to earth and easy to talk to. In fact, the senior manager whom I interviewed on campus called me up and gave me suggestions for my office visit. The conversations I had with the professionals seems very representative of the type of culture that can be expected at EY.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at EY in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Mostly just a rundown of the resume. The interviewer talked with me line by line down my resume, and then just talked culture and what to expect from the emerging leaders program. It didn't feel like a typical interview, more just a review to see if you are a good fit for the program

    Risk Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I received my interview through on campus recruiting. It was short and conversational. My interviewer was easy to talk to and not intimidating. We started out talking about the weather and then about myself and then himself and then casually mixed in interview questions. One thing I can say is that it might pay to get an early interview time. I had exams and couldn't attend my interview until later in the day and my interviewer seemed tired and less interested that he should have been.
