Staff Consultant Interview

Staff Consultant
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2012.

Interview Details – Differs everywhere but if it is a campus hire situation, there will be an on campus intervew and if that goes well, you would be called in for a superday interview with 3 or more managers/senior managers/partners and you get taken out for lunch on the house!

Interview Question – The interviews are usually not that tough. They really want to know you rather than what you know. They might test your humor or spirit to take criticism.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Usually negotiation depends on prior experience or degrees.

Very Easy Interview

Staff Consultant Interview

Staff Consultant
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in January 2012.

Interview Question – I was asked about controls experience. I had none. Wasn't a big deal I guess.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pretty easy, I said I need something as close to what I was making before and they were able to get very close.
