I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in March 2014.

Interview Details – 1. Campus interview- 2 behavioral, very casual interviews. More like chatting with the interviewer than a Q&A.
2. Office Interview- Also behavioral. Talk to a partner and chat about similarities..I talked about football. They are really just trying to get to know you and introduce you to the firm. One of the interviewers asked some questions about past experiences. Know your resume.

Emerging Leaders Program Interview

Emerging Leaders Program
Binghamton, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at EY in April 2014.

Interview Details – 2 rounds of interviews, one behavioral and one technical. Behavioral questions are mainly focused on resumes whereas technical questions are about my previous works with EY. Technical questions are legit and they are not really easy. Since I have prior experiences with EY professionals, my technical questions for my interview were pretty much about that experience.

Interview Question – Not really that many difficulty questions   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at EY in February 2013.

Interview Details – EY hosts some of the friendliest professionals I have come in contact with. They were extremely helpful from the very beginning. You apply for this position through both your school's website and through the main Ernst & Young website. There is only one interview. The interview is highly behavioral. They just want to see that you're excited to work for EY and would be a good fit.
