    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online submitted all relevant certs together with cv n resume. Within a week received an email from HR manager asking when is the best time to contact with me. The next day received their call and did a phone interview. Everything went smoothly, questions were mostly on behavioral questions and probed on more information on top of my resume. HR manager sounds interested caused my qualification meet their requirement and told me that another face interview to be arranged soon if everything goes well and asked me when I will be free.

    However, it's been two weeks since the phone interview, I have receive neither emails nor calls from them. I tried to follow up by sending two emails but no reply. I assume that maybe the manager was busy with other events.

    I don't understand why they can't let the candidates know whether their applications are rejected or still under pending but to let the candidates assume themselves that they have been rejected and not wait any longer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY (Warwick, West Midlands, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    1) Application
    2) Psychometric and situational strength test
    3) Interview: 1on1 with a very nice interviewer, it was very conversational however there was still a schedule to go through of an overall 16 questions to answer to
    4) Assessment Day: We got there and they offered us breakfast. Afterwards they divided us in groups and we had a group exercise, afterwards a written exercise, both had a 40 minute allowance. Finally a psychometric test which in my opinion was hard but nothing impossible if you were prepared.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY in February 2015.

    Interview

    This was a very laid back interview. I have been to previous networking events so I knew who the person was that was interviewing me which made it even more personal. He ran through my resume and asked me things he thought were interesting so I advise you know your resume like the back of your hand. Then I was asked why I am interested in EY and the consulting industry (because I am an engineer). This was followed by a behavioral question, (Name a time you had a conflict with someone when working as a team and how you overcame it). I was applying for the NYC location and was not extended an invitation due to limited occupancy, but they are calling me a 'top candidate' and because of that I have been invited to private events on my campus and was just invited to a half day visit of the NYC firm this summer so do not give up if you do not get an invite to the ELP.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.
      Run me through your resume.
      Why are you interested in EY and professional business services in general as an engineer?
      Tell me about a time you had a conflict with someone when working as a team and how you overcame it.
