    The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met with Partner on campus. Very laid back interview. Spoke about my experiences and how I juggle work and graduate school. Was invited for office visit where I had two interviews: one with a partner and one with a senior manager. Again interviews were more conversational. Senior manager asked me more about my day to day activities and about exactly what I do. Very nice people!

    Took over 2 weeks to get back to me (I'm assuming I was 2nd tier).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very typical campus recruiting process. First round was on campus, which included a prenight get-together and a one-to-one interview with a manager the following day. Quite casual, the interview only lasted 15 mins. The manager mentioned in the prenight that the length of the interview did not mean anything. He asked one or two behavior questions and mostly asked me to explain my experiences on my resume. Then I waited for entire two weeks until receiving notice of the next round office visit in New York.

    Second round included two back-to-back interviews, an office tour, a free lunch and a background check. I interviewed with two partners in FSO. And neither of them asked me more than one behavior question. They talked about themselves, went through my resume and asked me to ask them questions.

    Suggestions for second round. The interviewers will definitely focus on your resume, so make sure you could explain your experiences well. The interviews are like conversations, so do not be nervous. And prepare a lot of questions. My second interviewer let me take the lead after his self introduction.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Came from campus recruiting. On campus interviewer were supposed to be a manager. The manager got schedule conflict so the campus recruiter conducted the interview instead. It was pretty relaxed, just behavior questions and why EY kind of classical questions. I had a great interview experience with our campus recuiter. I received the office interview invitation three days later.

    There were two round interviews for the on site. My first interviewer were a senior manager and then a manager. My first interview went smoothly. However, I didn't handle the questions well on my second one. Although he said his interview style was conversational, I didn't like it. He didn't ask too many follow up questions and kind of let me lead the interview. I was a little bit panic when the talk came to stop.

    I received an phone call about one and half week later said they will extend an offer to me but the official offer letter will be given by next week. I am still waiting for it.

    Some insiders said if they give you the offer very quickly, one to three days, you were their top candidate other wise you might on the waiting list, not their first choice.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed 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.
