I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – Applied through on campus recruiting; first round interview with very kind manager--half the time was my asking questions. Received invitation two weeks later for office visit superday. After lunch and a short office tour, there were three back-to-back interviews. Of the three interviews, the case study was fairly difficult, but the two behavioral interviews were quite good.

Interview Question – No especially hard question stood out. Have questions for your interviewers prepared.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2009.

Interview Details – First, you start by applying online and at your university, you must submit your transcript and resume. If you get chosen, you then schedule an interview at your school during the on campus interview day. Then if that interview goes well, they invite you to second round interviews at the office and take you out to lunch. There are usually 3 interviews in house. Usually a phone call is given for invitations to interviews while letters are sent for rejections. The people here were super nice and the office was very clean and looked very organized. The culture was amazing, everyone was helpful. My interviewers were great especially during second round interviews. We had so much fun talking it did not even seem like an interview!

Interview Question – What was one time you had to deal with a difficult person? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They gave me an offer on the spot, I did not negotiate as I felt all compensation was fair.
