    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (Singapore (Singapore)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through TURF, and was contacted via phone call around one month later. The next stage was the group interview. Mostly behavioural questions were asked, but it varies for different interviewers. The interview was quite relaxed, and the interviewer's main purpose was to understand the applicants, rather than to grill each of us with difficult questions. Offer was made 2 hours later via phone call.
