    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The people were great. I interview with 2 of the partners and had a great conversation with them. It did not take as long as I thought it would, but I would say I did not have a regular interview. So the key is to prepare look up information about the company and try to tie it in the interview to let them know you are knowledgeable of the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Did not have anything too difficult.   Answer Question
    • Please try to be as detailed as possible regarding the technical question, business case, etc.   Answer Question

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing was detailed and thorough. Most of the questions focused on technology capabilities and process improvement experience. Interviewers were very amiable and the questions were mostly behavioral based. The process was more lengthy than I had anticipated, with an initial interview with a recruiter, followed up with a phone interview with a Manager. I then had a day long interview session of 1:1 interviews and a 2:1 interview with a Partner & Sr. Manager.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question asked was my knowledge of and experience with, multiple different ERPs and bolt-on software.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations, EY tells you what you will make.

    Interview Details

    Had three rounds of interviews. One initial screening by HR, then 3 interviews in the office followed by a final phone interview with the team lead in NY. Overall the process was quite as you would expect. Interviewers were friendly and threw no curve balls. The interviews focused on experience and background.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation as there is a stipulated rate for summer internships.

    IT Risk and Assurance Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    One campus interview, a writing assessment, two behavioral interviews and a case interview. The interview process wasn't too taxing, don't over think the interview, typical behavioral interviews all in all it was a laid back process.

    Interview Questions
    • The case interview was stressful going into but I found it easy once I started, the interviewer somewhat guides you on the issues and they are more interested in how and why you think not necessarily what is the correct answer. Be confident and support your answers. Be rehearsed on business tactics like SWOT analysis.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I'm more technology side: Business Analyst as opposed to doing accounting audits. I chose to stay with my passion of IT BA instead of taking the accounting route.

    Very easy. Talked to recruiter, hiring manager, hiring manager's manager. Did not meet any junior members of the team. Would have eased resentment later on. Did not meet other members of larger marketing team until later on.

    • None. At junior levels seemed to be a lot of frustration.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes. If they really want you, they are flexible.
