    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    3 Steps 1. phone conversation with recruiter - basic personality and resume questions 2. on campus interview - Mine lasted 45 minutes. Asked more in depth questions about my resume. What are your biggest strengths/weaknesses? What is a time you have had trouble with a teammate and how have you dealt with that? 3. Office Visit - They flew me to the office location I wanted, and put me up in a really nice hotel. The first night someone came to the hotel to pick me up and take me to a partner's house for dinner with other staff and applicants. The office visit consisted of a presentation, staff panel, 3 30 minute interviews, and a lunch with staff and the other applicants. The interviews mainly consisted of me asking them questions about their experience at EY.

Then we had interview with a Manager, Sr. Mgr, and a Partner. Each was about 30 mins. Our host took us to lunch afterwards, they further shared their experience. The whole interview process (including breakfast and lunch) was about half day. I got a call from the Partner about an hour after the interview and I got the offer.

    Interview

    on campus recruiting, first round, only behavioral questions. Asked about my summer experiences, on campus activities and teamwork experiences. I was also asked about my biggest achievement. No direct question about why you are interested in audit.

    Interview Questions

    • Did not ask me to introduce myself at the start. Started as an unexpected way. The most unexpected questions are biggest achievement. Tips, always remember elaborate why you are applying for that position   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Two interviews. one is on campus the other is on side The on campus one is pretty causal, just make the interviewer know you better. The on side one is pretty stressful. Two interviewers, back to back, asking very detail questions about any kind of things. Also went through the resume as well. But I don't think they really care about what you answers are. At the first 30 seconds, they have decided NOT YOU.
