    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview. Easy going, mainly trying to get to know you to see if you match EY's culture. More conversational than a typical interview. I had a dinner the night before where I got to meet my interviewer in a social setting. This helped ease my nerves before going in to the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Standard on-campus interview, which typically revolved around behavioral and resume based questions. Then got invited back for my in-office Superday interview, which was 2 behavioral and 1 case study interview. One manager, one senior manager, and one partner interview in total. Case study was a breeze, and mostly reading-comprehension based about how to make suggestions to this particular failing company. Between my Superday and offer was over 3 months, which seems exceptionally long but I figure that I was an exception.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I interviewed for their Emerging Leaders Program first, which I accepted and attended. After that I had an "in" for interviewing for full time. I can't stress how important it is to send follow up emails to people you meet and interview with. Don't be shy to ask them out to lunch, I had 3 lunches with some EY staff. I was invited to Megaday, where I had 3 interviews back to back (2 behavioral, 1 case). Not too difficult, just show genuine interest and be able to answer behavioral questions (tell me of a time when..) and it should go by smoothly. The case isn't too hard, there was little math involved but required reading about 8-10 pages of material and then discussing what you observed. Had the interview on a Thursday and got an offer the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me of a time when you worked on a team or with a difficult person? How do you go about setting and achieving a goal? Where do you see yourself in 3 years? Why EY? Tell me of a time when you had to solve a problem?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Started with a Human Resources point of contact from my recruiter. I sat in one room with each individual interviewer visiting me in the one location. Started with an Audit Manager for about 30 minutes and then spoke with two Partners focused on Private Equity and Hedge Fund line of business for an hour in total. The process was relatively painless except there were some product specific questions to ensure I really knew the products I claimed were on my resume.

    Technology Advisory Program Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I was called through the college career website for an on-campus interview. The night before the interview, all candidates were invited to a dinner where we met with employees of EY and prospective interviewers. It was a networking event to understand the company culture and an opportunity to make a good impression with your interviewer before the interview. The on-campus interview was just simple behavioral. I got through to the next round of interviews (the infamous SuperDay) which happened in Dallas (ofcourse, they flew me there and put me up in a nice hotel room). We were invited to yet another reception dinner where we got to meet high ranking partners. The 3 interviews (one case interview, one behavioral, and one with an EY partner) were each 30 minutes long.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave me a 6 page long case study to read in 15 minutes and come up with recommendations to a couple of questions (that were on the last page).   Answer Question
