    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    The process was relatively standard. A few common phone interviews were held, followed by 4 in person interviews at a regional headquarters. The questions were standard, canned consulting questions including situational, behavioral and case studies.

    Interview Questions

    • I did not find any of the questions difficult. As the group I was applying for was growing rapidly, the interviewers were looking at more behavioral aspects.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Salary was very competitive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at EY (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The interviews themselves were staged in an extremely professional, well-organized manner. The followup, however, was slipshod and basically rude. Overall I would say the experience was rather negative. I was left with the impression that their HR people had so many applicants they wouldn't bother with you for more than 5 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to lay out the strategy and plans I would follow to succeed in the job were I to be hired.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at EY in September 2008.

    Interview

    Headhunter contact me to see if I was interested in working for Oil & Gas practice in Saudi Arabia. I agreed to consider the possibility. I was introduced to E&Y, and I had 4 or 5 phone interviews with mostly partners spread throughout a period of about 6 weeks. The process concluded with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe me in detail a difficult situation that you have recently faced in consulting; particularly one that you were unable to overcome or which resulted in imperfect results.   Answer Question
    • Why do you want to work in Saudi Arabia?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary represented about 40% of my previous salary in the USA; home allowance was insufficient to live in a comparable compound house to the one I have in the USA. Number of holidays was very good, but the travel home allowance was not even enough to pay for a round trip coach class ticket to the USA per year. Job expectations prevented me from living in Bahrain, and expected me to work not only during the week, but also most weekends.
