    ITAS (Information Technology Advisory Service) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at EY in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got the on-campus interview after submitting a copy of my resume in the NYU career fair. I think high GPA is a key for them picking you. The on-campus interview is general behavioral and very easy. It only took about 20 minutes. Then about one week later they informed me to attend the Supper Day practice which is a sequence of interviews in a single day. It includes two behavioral interviews with managers, one case study with a manager and one writing sample. The interviews were pretty easy except the case study for non-business background guy like me. The case was about bank merger. I guess the interviewer was manager of risk management department because he kept asking me about every type of risk of this case. Then they took me to have lunch. After filling a form about questions like "Have you applied other companies?" I went home. I got rejection email the next Wednesday.

    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.

    Through my University. 95% behaviourial with 5% being technical. The questions were more to find out how one was handling the questions asked without getting stumped by the questions. There were no right answers only how well the candidate is answering them.

    I had been selected in the on-campus interview and have been called for the on-site this November.

    Very nice lady to talk with, the interview went quite well compare to other big four I interviewed with. No tough questions, talked about the interviewer's personal life too and she was happy to share. I feel EY is a good firm to work for because all their people seem to be friendly.

    IT Risk Advisory - Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at EY in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first step was to apply through the school recruiting website then there was an on-campus interview for about 45 minutes. Then if they decide to further the process with you, they will call you in for an on-sight interview at the place you want to work for. It consisted of 2 behavioral interviews, 1 with a partner and another with a manager, "Quality/Growth" and "People". Then there is a case interview with a manager which was just basically logic. The final step was a writing sample in which they want to know your writing abilities. They say they will give you a call in 2 weeks but I got a call back in less than 2 days. The people were friendly and tried to make everything as comfortable as possible for the candidates. It was an enjoyable process.
