New York, NY

The process took 2 days - interviewed at EY in October 2009.

Interview Details – partners and recruiters were both very convincing. made a tough sell for the company. got another offer from another big 4 firm and chose to go with that because of the signing bonus. i loved ernst and young, but the other firm just made sense at the time.

Intern Interview

Intern
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at EY in September 2009.

Interview Details – E&Y did on campus interviews at my school. They had a dinner and presentation the night before formal interviews on campus. The formal interview consisted of behavioral type questions with a manager. I was interviewing for an intern position in their Risk Advisory services. In the end I was told I did not receive an offer because my background is in finance and leadership had decided they only wanted to hire accounting majors. Overall it was a good interviewing experience.

Interview Question – Give me an example of a time in which you were in a group setting and you had to deal with conflict between members. How did you deal with it and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

San Juan, PR

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in December 2008.

Interview Details – I met the person in charge of Human Resources at the University of Puerto Rico Job Fair. There she took my resume and told me that she would call me for a first interview at the Puerto Rico Office. I got a call for the first interview on October 2008 where I met one of the Senior Tax Managers and told me what was expected of me as a Tax Intern. After passing this interview, I went on a second interview in December where I met one of the Tax Partners and was interviewed by three other different people. I passed the second round of interviews and got a call two weeks after telling me I got the internship during Tax Season.

The final round consisted of an interview with a senior manager, but no business case was involved.

Very Easy Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in September 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring process took about a month or so. I submitted my application through campus recruitment, and about a month later, I received a call to fix my interview date.

As for the interview, it was a group interview. There were 2 other applicants. It had a very relaxed setting, and went more like a conversation. The interviewer asked us on our opinions on various things, like what we expect to get out of this internship, and then went on to tell us what we can expect from it. At the end of the interview, he assured us that we would all get accepted, which we did.

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

Interview Details – The hiring was not by the company rather we were alloted the company as a part of our internship process of the college. So according to our preference we were alloted Ernst and Young as our internship company. This process was done looking at our college CGPA and our profile.
