I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – I was referred by an alum of my program because they don't recruit directly in my school. First interview was purely behavioral, with pretty standard questions. Then they flew me to Denver for a half-day session - the office is great with an amazing view of the Rockies! There were 4 in total:
- Behavioral - People: Focused on relationships, leadership, teamwork
- Behavioral - Quality: Focused on attention to detail, processes, and organizational tools
- Group Presentation: case study type, focused on team work and collaboration
- Case Interview: pretty standard, important to focus on proper framework and logical process

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in December 2012.

Interview Details – First round interview was over the phone and lasted roughly 20-30 minutes. The interviewer asked me to tell me about a couple of things on my resume, then began to ask behavioral interview questions: tell me about a time you worked in a team, what was your biggest challenge, etc. Interviewer then gave me time at the end to ask questions.

Advisory Intern
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in November 2010.

Interview Details – I originally got the interview through my college's on campus career fair. Once then, I got accepted to interview on campus. Had the on campus interview which went well, very laid back, I got an email about 4 weeks later stating that I was accepted to the 2nd round. I was then flown out to New York to interview on a Super Day. The interview took all day (2 behavioral based interviews with partners, a written case interview with another partner and a business writing sample). I found out if I got accepted 4 weeks later.

Interview Question – Tell about yourself? What sets you apart from the rest? Tell me something important not on your resume? The rest of the time I just walked through my resume and they asked questions as I went down the list.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate my intern offer

Advisory Intern
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at EY in October 2009.

Interview Details – Applied for the summer advisory intern position through the university's career center. Had a 45 minutes interview on campus with one of the managers. Very friendly and the interview mainly consisted of background and behavioral questions.

I would say the whole process was more like a friendly discussions of our personal experiences (yes, the manager talked a lot about himself too), perspectives on the company, work cultures, future plans etc
