Advisory Manager Interview

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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in January 2014.

Interview Details

Got a call from EY recruiter. Had a first screening with a HR and one with a Sr. Manager and clearing that round in the same week, was sent to NY for interview. Had a discussion with a sr manager there and while discussing with the partner found that they send me for a different dept. to interview with...disappointing...
After 2 days got a call that they want to have further discussions. they scheduled 2 interviews/screenings with managers. It went pretty well, atleast thats what i thought.. Got a call from HR after 4 days that they loved to talk to me but my profile/experience does not match what they were looking for in the position....Shouldn't they be looking into my resume first if the profile is not what they are looking for and avoid wasting time.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at EY in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very professional process. Recruiter contacted by phone and email, set up a quick 20 minute phone call. Very easy, more of a conversation about what I've done in the past and what I want to do in the future. This was the same format that followed with the other 6 interviews, including Partners, Senior Managers, and a couple of other Managers. They did this all over the phone, never met me in person. Super friendly and transparent. Everyone was very open about their experiences. Recruiter did a wonderful job keeping me informed every step of the way.

    Recruiter got in touch via email. Had a phone interview with a senior manager and then was invited for an in-person interview. Was interviewed for three hours by four senior managers and one partner. Overall it was a pleasant experience and was given an offer the next day. The recruiter was very prompt and handled the entire process flawlessly.

    Interview went well, the firm has been very engaged and communicative through out the process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There is supposedly offer on the table, appears to be a tussle with regards to disclosure of information. Why does EY need a candidate's W-2 information to make a competitive offer ? Is it because they are unable to value talent ( concerning as this is an advisory firm charging for valuations) or because they like to make low ball offers to candidates?
    I am curious if others have been required to provide the same ?

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at EY in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very well planned, interviewers know what side are going tackle each. 3 interviews in a row withough a break was tough. Interview was productiive. Very behavioral, could have entered into more technical details, which makes me wonder how interested they are in your past experience or specific knowledge of what your resume says. Interviewers are very very responsive and interested in sharing what EY stands for.
