    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    This was for an interview over ten years ago, so the process may have changed somewhat. I received the interview through an employee referral, who referred me to a recruiter.

    It was similar to most other management consulting interviews--that is to say, very thorough, multiple rounds with different people in the group at various management levels, and thought-provoking questions. I was interviewing with other management consulting firms and investment banks at the same time, so it was nothing unexpected. However, I did put in numerous hours of company and industry research, informational interviews, networking, and application preparation. The interview process was difficult, but I was hired in a business advisory group that led to some very interesting work and a great professional springboard.

    I'd recommend EY to anyone who wants to a strong start to their career learning for business fundamentals or a seasoned professional who's looking for a new challenge in their next career step.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    First round was a 1:1 on campus interview mostly behavioral questions. Recieved an email offering a second round interview in office. The night before the second round interview there was a dinner at a local resturant where you were able to meet the people you were interviewing with the next day and feel more relaxed prior to the full day of interviews. Second round interview consisted of 4 1:1 interviews mostly behavioral with one being a case study interview. Lunch provided with everyone who was interviewing that day. At the end of the day, there was an essay question to answer. We were given 45 minutes to answer the essay question. This was just used to check your ability to write and form ideas in ways for others to understand. Overall it was a very relaxed interview process. They basically wanted you to think their company was the best place to work.

    Interview Details

    The company had come to my campus for recruitment. They conducted a written test which had questions from finance and economics. That was followed by an interview round where they asked question on finance , economic conditions in the country, fiscal deficit.
    Most of the people in the organization are approachable and helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions in finance revolved around split and bonus shares, basic accounting questions (ratios and stuff). I appeared for the interview in 2012 and there was lot of buzz around bad economic conditions in India, fiscal deficit and so they asked me various questions on the same like the steps being proposed to reduce fiscal deficit (like governmnet selling some stake in PSUs, asking cash rich PSUs is pay off dividends etc ).   Answer Question
