Secaucus, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at EY in October 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an email for a phone interview with HR. Phone interview is mostly about your resume and work experiences. Invited for a 1:1 interview with a Director and Assistant Director. Interview itself is not that bad, so long as you really know what you wrote in your resume. Friendly atmosphere and I did not feel intimidated

Negotiation Details – Didn't get the chance to negotiate
