    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Interview process was similar to other companies in the industry. 1st round was on-campus interview and then they invited students for in-house interview. I interviewed with two--one partner and one manager. Both asked mostly behavioral questions but they asked details of some experiences. Interview length was about 30mins for each.

    Tech Support Interview

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

    The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at EY in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    When I first saw the ad on indeed.com, I applied right away. However, there is another ad just like the one I applied but in different location. So, I applied that also. So there are locations NY, and NJ-A
    The HR recruiter called me from different location (not from NY, NJ) and set up phone interview with me. So, I talked to her and passed the initial phone interview. I was confused at first because I thought I was talking to her about the NJ location. Anyhow, I don’t mind at all for NY location. She understood, but sent me to NY interview anyway.
    So, the interview was set up with the upper manager in NY. ( btw, he is a manager that is above manager from NJ location). The interview went well, but the manager knew that I prefer NJ location to NY location. And so, I didn’t get the job from NY location. However, he did recommend me to NJ location and was telling me the hiring should be done at the beginning of October. So, the waiting game began ….
    I was reading some of the reviews of interviews on glassdoor.com. Some posters said that the duration may last 2 months. I checked my application and it started from Aug 1, 2013. And so I thought I still had a couple weeks to wait. At the almost end of third week of September, I decided to send another follow up email to HR (btw, I sent a couple f follow ups already and HR told me to be patience), and this time she told me the position was on hold and may go internally. That is why I can’t get the position on NJ-A.
    Oh well, something is not really meant to be. If it is not yours, it is really not yours no matter how well you feel about interview, how manager recommends you to other site. This time the HR told me that there may be NJ-B location to be opened which is very far from where I live, and told me if that opens and asked me if I wanted to give a shot if that opens. I told her yes. However, that may be another months to consider.
    The HR recruiter was acting professionally; at least she did give me updates every time I emailed her. Many recruiters don’t really care if you are a loser. However, I don’t think that I have any chance working for Ernst & Young due to the fact that they have a very poor hiring management.
    Shouldn't the position be kept internally if internal applicants want to apply first?! Why would the position (NJ-A) be posted online or outside if internal applicants applied for it? If that was never posted, I could have made it onto the NY position!!

    Well, this tells that if something is not yours, no matter how hard you try , it is not yours regardless your experience, skill sets, and how good interview went …..

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Fit interview with some behavior questions. Mostly see if I get along with them.
    The process was quite long, like 6 hour long. I met all the managerial staff of the team I interviewed with. Overall the experience was pleasant. I did not get an offer perhaps because I was under qualified.

    Consulting Manager Interview

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

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at EY in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviews themselves were staged in an extremely professional, well-organized manner. The followup, however, was slipshod and basically rude. Overall I would say the experience was rather negative. I was left with the impression that their HR people had so many applicants they wouldn't bother with you for more than 5 minutes.
