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

Interviewed at EY

Interview Details – Initial communications were through my university. The process was very smooth. Interviews consisted of one informal on-campus interview, followed by one office visit. During the office visit, the firm is really trying to sell you on what they have to offer and provide you with an opportunity to meet as many people as possible, so you get a feel fro the office and your potential colleagues.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions. Just questions like "why public accounting?" "Why EY?", etc.   Answer Question
