    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Three interviews in a row, and two behaviors with one case study. The case study is more focus on business side rather than any specific calculation. And the behavior questions are just tell me a time when.... type of questions. People there are really nice to me, since I wasn't have much case study experience, the person kind of walk me through the case.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by on-site interview (4 rounds). Phone interview had some resume questions, mostly technical (swaps pricing, regression). Can't seem to recall any challenging behavioral questions on the on-site interview, though technical questions like walking through option pricing, statistical models I've done, and some general chat.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview began with breakfast with about a dozen other applicants. Breakfast was followed by a general overview of the firm and then short presentations from senior staff members from the three main product line services (Assurance, Tax, Advisory). Next was two thirty minute interviews which were pretty casual and mostly personality based questions. Finally all the applicants were taking to lunch (Phillips).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got the interview by employee referral. First interview was a phone interview that lasted about 30 mins, basic questions about myself and situational question. Heard back a week later that I got a second interview - office interview with 3 different personnel - a partner and 2 senior managers. It's very conversational interview. Got a call a few hours later from a partner saying that I got the job.
    I got asked all three times: "Tell me about yourself" so prepare that real well, make sure that you make it personal, conversational and start off with some light jokes. I was really comfortable the whole time and the interviewers were really helpful. They made it all about you. Remember, they are human like us and they wouldn't want to hear something that too stiff. The one thing that I really remember is that they emphasized on you being a people person so make sure to show them that.
