    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very formal and structured on-campus interview process. Full-day office interview with 3 or 4 team members ranging from seniors to the partner in the group. All interviews focused on how the interviewee fit within the firms core values and People framework. With the exception of the partner and senior manager interviews, the interviews were generally relaxed and easy. Offer was given only a few days after the office interview.

    Interview Questions
    • During my interview process, there were no difficult or unexpected questions. Currently, the firm requires the candidate to complete a case study and writing sample, which is then graded by a member of the team. For this, be mindful what position you are applying for a craft your answer to be consistent with what group you are trying to join (IT v.s audit v.s. tax, etc.)   Answer Question

    There was no negotiation. But I would recommend trying. I regret not even trying.

    IT Audit Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  McLean, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was a college campus hire and I was interviewed on campus for the first round. The night before we had a meet and greet a local place and I got to meet all the recruiters and interviewers. So basically I already knew my interviewer. The first round was just some basic behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Interview went smoothly as I already knew the interviewer prior to it.

    They accepted me and I was brought in for a 2nd round interview at the local office I wanted to work at. It consisted of 3 interviews. 1 was a case interview and the others were very laid back more behavioral interviews. Basically they just want to know if you are able to hold a conversation because when you are on the job you meet with a lot of clients.

    The case interview consisted of a me reading a case and pointing of the issues I saw in the IT environment. The interviewer would ask very basic questions just to get a feel for my thought process. Nothing extreme.

    Interview Questions
    • The business case was the most difficult part of the interview process as they gave you a limited amount of time to study the case. Some of the questions were very broad and sometimes hard to answer. But the whole point of it was to just get a feel of your thought process.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at EY in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    First, I had an on-campus behavioral interview with a brainteaser at the end. A month later, I flew out to New York for a super day. EY arranged all my travel and hotel accommodations. There was a continental breakfast while people arrived. First there was an overview of the program and the company. Then an employee was assigned to every interviewee. This person walked the interviewee to each of their 4 interviews: 2 behavioral interviews with a parter, a writing sample, and a case interview guided by a senior manager. I then went out to lunch with my employee "buddy" and a couple of others.
