    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my career website and got a call from HR and scheduled an interview for the next day which was kind of fast. I then had a 45 minute behavioral interview that covered a range of topics like leadership, strengths weaknesses, etc. The interviewer was very very nice and I was very comfortable having a conversation with him. After my interview, I had a timed writing assessment.

    Technology Advisor Program 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 6 weeks - interviewed at EY in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got the initial interview through university recruiting? I think, not entirely sure. Phone interview is 30 minutes. Two weeks later, heard back and was asked to do a writing assessment. I think this was the "2nd round." A few weeks later was invited to a Super Day. First there's a presentation about the company and the program. Then there are 3 interviews: 2 behavioral, 1 case study. You will DEFINITELY interview with someone (if not all) of significance. My first interview was with a partner and I completely ruined it. 2nd interview and 3rd interview (case study) went well. Greeters are young/recent grads. Extremely friendly, they bring you to eat after all the interviews.

    Forensic Technology and Discovery Services/Internship 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 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went to an information session for EY consulting on my campus, which is how I got interested in the company. I looked on our career services page and found a number of their listings. I chose to apply to the position that seemed to fit best with my specific engineering major (information and systems.)

    I got the first round interview, which ended up being over the phone because the guy could not make it to campus that day. He asked questions about my resume and transcript and why EY and why his division. I got through to the second round NYC office visit. At the visit, there was a short presentation followed by a lunch where we sat down and met our greeters (people that walk you around to each interview and make you feel comfortable.) There were just two behavioral interviews with some very standard behavioral questions. These were in fact my first behavioral interviews ever and I did not feel properly prepared.

    Overall, they make you feel very comfortable and it was a good experience. The FTDS department is only about 5 years old and growing quickly. The people are interested in what they do, and I got the idea that everyone takes the recruiting process very seriously despite how busy they are.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing too technical and they did not present any case questions. I was thrown off by the question, "what is your greatest technical strength and greatest technical weakness?"   View Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my schools career website. They got back to me in a couple of weeks saying I had an interview and a pre-night dinner. The dinner was really fun and I got to meet my interviewer. The interview was 30 minutes long and strictly behavioral. He went through my resume from top to bottom and asked me questions. They said I would hear in 7-10 days. There is also a writing sample that needs to be competed, which was not difficult.
    About 7 days later I got the email saying I was not selected for the second round interview.

    First round interview was easy 1 on 1 with one person. Basically just talked about the resume and asked behavioral questions such as what is a time you failed and what did you do to fix it and what if a member in your team was not doing there work, how would you approach them. Then had to do a writing sample on my own. Didnt get the offer though
