    recruited through on campus recruiting. attended several EY mixers and socials. had round one interview. pretty easy, mostly behavioral question. I advanced to the final round. Final round day I interviewed with 3 different people: senior, senior manager and a partner. all behavioral questions. they rely heavily on your GPA and base your technical understanding on the grades you receive in your accounting classes. the rest is all behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I was called for a phone interview a few days after recruiters came to visit my school. This interview was very straightforward, and we mostly talked about my qualifications and resume. I also got the chance to ask my initial questions about the company and the open positions at the firm. A day later, they invited me in for a office visit the following week. The office visit consisted of a dinner with a couple staff members the night before, an informative staff panel in the morning, lunch, and then one-on-one interviews with management. Overall it was a very comfortable and informative experience. Their hiring decision after the interview took about three weeks.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I began the process with a dinner the night before an on campus interview. At the dinner I got to meet with my interviewer and familiarize myself with them. At my on campus interview, my interviewer asked me mostly behavioral questions and a couple questions about my resume. I heard back from that about a week later with an invitation to visit the office. The office interview consisted of two interviews and lunch with staff members. The interviews in the office were just about getting to know you and asked simple questions about my resume.

    Had an on campus interview followed by two back to back interviews at the midtown office. The on-campus was a more general HR type questions, while the in office was a bit more conversational. It wasn't stressful at all, very relaxed in fact. The key is to be genuine, it helps makes the day go by quicker. They want to hear from you, not necessarily your rehearsed short answers.

Afterward they take you to a meal where they see if you can carry a conversation and take note of your social etiquette. Overall a good experience

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting. Went to first round on-campus interview with a partner on Oct. 16th and second round on-site interview with two senior managers on Nov. 21st. Both were one-to-one. The whole process, from first round interview to final decision making, took almost 5 weeks. However, the decision was made the next day right after the office visit.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing technical. Most of them were conversational. I had three interviewers during the whole interview process. There was only one guy asking me many questions about my experience, like the best/worst team/people you've ever worked with, describing a time when you made a right/wrong decision, etc.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I like the company and people there. They are very nice and friendly. I didn't negotiate because the benefit or salary for new employees is basically identical in all of the big four.
