    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Here is my turn to post about my interview experience. Not to demotivate you guys but I had one of the most exhausting interview for this position. My first interview was with the Manager. It was a behavioral interview with many case scenarios.
    1) Tell us about a time where you had to step out of your comfort zone and got the issue resolved in your professional career ?
    2) Tell us about the time where you left a positive impact to the company you have worked ?
    3) As a Product Manager, do you think design of the product is more important or the market segment?
    4) Tell us about a time where you had a positive impact on the people professional/personal life?
    5) If there is a merger /acquisition happening between 2 firms then what are the important thing you need to address and how do you go about the whole process ?
    6)Tell us about the time were you had an issue with a non technical team and how effectively did you communicate the issue ? and did you get the issue resolved ?
    7) Tell us about the time were you have implemented LEAN initiatives in your organization?
    8) Tell us about a time where you have lead a team in a professional environment ? some challenges you have faced in that duration ?

    That were some of the questions which I was asked. My interview was scheduled for 45 min but the Manager was so involved in the interview that it got extended by another 20 min.Interview with Senior Manager was very smooth because he was doing all the talking.
    I hope this post really help you guys in preparing for your interview. All the best

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took longer than I expected, but was a fairly simple process overall.

    1) Reached out by an EY recruiter in the beginning regarding the nature of the position and a discussion of the type of work involved.

    2) Next step was a phone interview with a Manager/Senior Manager about the practice in general, type of people they are looking for, and further in-depth discussion of the types of opportunities within the practice

    3) Final part of the process was in person interviews, each lasting anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult. It seemed to be purely a behavioral interview. As in, is this someone I would want to work with on a daily basis, especially late nights, and would they make a great impression on the client.   Answer Question

    It is a conversational interview, the partner asked for the information which he wanted to know very randomly, barely behavioral questions. And there is another round of manager interview, which contained more behavioral questions and walking through the resume.

    Audit Staff I Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    First, there was a resume screen followed by a 1:1 interview with a senior manager, who primarily asked "walk me through your resume" and follow-up questions. A few weeks after that, there was a social with hors d'oeuvres the night before the interview. The interview day included three interviews with ascending levels of management, including a break for lunch and a brief presentation about EY and why we should work for them. It lasted from about 9am until 3:30pm.

    The entire interview process focused on fit. You're going to be working with some of these people late at night, and you have to ensure that you like them and they like you. It felt very similar to fraternity rush, just more professional. Shake plenty of hands, make small talk, shine your shoes and press your suit and you will be fine if you have made it past the first round.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting system and on-campus recruiting event. Had a first round interview a week later, and heard back about second round 4 weeks later. The first round was walking through resume and behavioral questions, followed by questions to ask the interviewer. The interviewer was a manager and the conversation was quite relaxed.

    Audit Interview

    Interview Details

    Was selected for a first round interview, the interviewer insisted that the process be more like a conversation than a behavioral interview. As such, the interview turned about to be a more about s discussion of myself than my resume. Was selected for a second round interview which consisted of a pre-interview dinner and a superday the following the day. The dinner was essentially a chance for the applicants to get to know the firm better and the superday was excellent. Interviewed by a senior manager and a partner both of whom were incredibly friendly and their questions were fairly simple, "Why audit," "tell me about a time when.." and etc. Left after a lunch with a new staffer. Excellent interview process and everyone at the firm helped you feel welcomed.
