    Interview

    Two 30 minute interviews - one with an audit partner and the second with a manager. The first interview was interesting, the partner seemed disinterested and keen on asking tough questions. The second interview was a lot more personable and conversation-like.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    During the first round of interviews, I talked to a partner and he was surprisingly very friendly and not intimidating. Most of his questions were based on the details listed on my resume, so make sure you know your resume well! He only asked one behavioral question.

    During my second round of interviews, I met with 3 different partners and most of their questions were behavioral. They had already heard a lot of details about me from my first interviewer, so don't repeat yourself word for word to keep them interested.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process runs over a few months, but starts even before that. In some cases, Sophomores would be encouraged to participate in campus events to show their interest in EY. During the actual interview, they will ask you questions about what you worked on during college, etc. But in actuality, it doesn't really matter as long as you have a relatively high GPA and a reasonable level of communication skills. Don't forget to ask a bunch of questions and show your interest.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Applied through career services at university. The first step was a 20 minute phone interview with a transfer pricing manager. After two weeks, received phone call from recruiting manager to come in for final interview. The final interview was in-house, approx. 4 hours. The first 1.5 hours was a lunch networking event with two EY staff followed by 2.5 hours of interviews with managers, senior managers, and executive director of the division. Most questions were behavioral i.e. strengths/weaknesses, tell me about yourself, etc. Some were more technical i.e. describe a DCF analysis. It is important to tell your story with an emphasis on impact/results, know current trends in the division, and be yourself. I heard back from the executive director with an offer within a week from the final interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    It was a very positive experience. This was one of the easiest interviews that I have ever gone through. They really just wanted me to emphasize my strengths and show them what I could offer to the company. They took a very long time to respond back to me after the interview. About 3 weeks I had to wait to hear back. When I did I was extremely happy and surprised!

    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.
