Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

Interview

I met a FSO Senior Manager at a career fair and connected with her afterwards. My referral helped me get a phone interview. I was invited to the office visit 5 weeks later. The office visit consists of 2 one-on-one interviews and a case interview. The interviewers just wanted to get to know you through your experience. Know your resume. Be ready to explain everything on your resume. Ask for feedback at the end of the interview. Relax! Got the offer after 2 hours.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I applied at my university's career search website. I was contacted soon in about a week to schedule an on-campus interview. I was also invited to a reception event which was organized closed to campus a night before the interview where I got a chance to meet with lots of people from EY along with a Senior manager. The interview included 15mins of case study and 30 mins of general conversation type interview. The case was pretty easy if you know how to handle it. They just want to see if you have any plan to handle it or not. Received a call of an on site interview in about a couple of weeks which included 3 interviews(2Senior managers, 1 Partner) These interviews were pretty much like the one on campus. Never felt like I was being interviewed. They were so casual. I did my homework in the form of research, and preparation though. Don't expect to have a comfortable experience if you haven't prepared for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The business case was too long to read slowly/carefully in 15 mins. I had to read quick, and take notes fast.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Started with a campus interview which was all behavioral questions. I was invited to the office for a visit where I had three interviews. The first was a behavioral interview, the second a case study, and the third was an interview with the Partner. The interview process is not bad at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (San Diego, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting and was invited to an office tour followed by a cocktail hour. The office tour consisted of meeting a partner, several managers, and a quick tour around the office. Everyone was very friendly and genuinely wanted to get to know all of the candidates. After the office tour, I got an email saying I was selected for an on-campus interview. I had to complete a short, online writing assessment prior to the on-campus interview. The interview was strictly behavioral.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Easy interview. No preparation is needed really. Be prepared to go over your resume and talk about your experiences. Management is very friendly and keen to hear about you. There is a 50 word minimum so I guess I will keep typing nonsense and hope that glassdoor doesn't pick it up.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation for campus hires.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Initial communications were through information sessions at school. I did a lot of networking by meeting EY professionals at various events like networking events, a resume review and a career fair. From there, I was able to get a first round interview. It was behavioral with the typical behavioral questions in the beginning and then moving more into a conversation towards the end. I was then invited for an final round office visit. I had a great experience. I had a chance to meet new EY professionals at the pre-interview reception dinner and then I went through the office interview process the next day. The first two interviews were behavioral and the last one was a case interview. The case interview was fairly straightforward since I had read up on the framework that they had provided.
