Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at EY (Alpharetta, GA) in September 2014.

Interview

The interview process, which was very quick, included an initial phone interview/screening with a recruiter, followed by an in-person interview with the hiring manager. By far, the entire process was very thorough and quick. I received an offer within one day from my in-person interview.

Interview Questions

  • The questions posed were general in nature (i.e., discuss, in chronological order, your professional background and stay focused on what you did specifically vs. what you and your team (the "WE" aspect) may have done; and behavioral-related questions).   Answer Question

Negotiation

I did not negotiate as the initial offer was more than fair.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process included a screening interview on the phone with a recruiter, an initial phone interview with the outgoing hiring manager, a face to face interview with the incoming hiring manager, an interview with both (one in the room, the other on the phone), an interview with several members of the team I would be joining (two in the room, another on the phone) and a final face to face interview with both a team member and the HR leader for the Northeast. By the time EY made an offer I had received another, very attractive offer for a position in Europe and they hurried their process a bit towards the end when I let them know this. At all times I was kept informed of next steps and treated very courteously by everyone.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall a particularly difficult or unexpected question, but the outgoing hiring manager turned the tables on me at the initial telephone interview and asked *me* to interview *her.*   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    The offer was very fair and I did not negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at EY (London, England (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Five face to face and 1 telephone interviews over a six month period. Mainly skills based questions and ones around team fit. The process lacked coordination and hade huge gaps between each stage. Nobody seemed to know what was happening. Somewhat surprising for a company of this size and stature.
