I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – I was selected for the internship through the Super Day experience. During the super day an interview was given, which was more of a behavioral interview. I was asked personal questions dealing with leadership, communication, conflicts, and extracurriculars. The interviewer was very nice and down to earth. I was nervous upon beginning the interview, but they are just trying to get to know you to see if you would be a good fit at EY.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. All staff begin with the same base salary
