    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    The negotiation process was interesting and a win-win proposition. They provided a great salary, sign-on bonus, relocation, and a great benefits package.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Had applied online before a job fair, but I found out that I had applied for the wrong division. I managed to get in touch with the correct division before the job fair and we agreed to meet there. When I got to the job fair I talked with the same person from before and then I was sent to see one more. Both interviews felt more like a conversation rather than an interview and the next day I was contacted with an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EY (Noida (India)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was basically to test your communication skills and problem solving ability. I think they selected me in GD round. There were many students who went for the interview but they were simply told that there aren't seats available for the profile. When I went in for the interview,I was interviewed and sent for the HR round.

    Negotiation

    Since it was campus hiring so no negotiation.
