    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a call from recruiter 3+ months later. After the initial phone interview, I had an on-site interview with four interviewers (three senior managers and one partner). It was a bit intensive when you have four interviews within the same day. I was also given financial information to perform a quick analysis of xxx company.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    On campus interview, followed by a three hour office interview in order to see where you would be working. The questions were not very behavioral, but more an informal meet and greet, where they showed the basics of what they did on an average day. Very easygoing, and I think what they were really trying to get at is "do you have a good attitude?" and "would we want to sit in an audit room with you for 12 hours/day during busy season?"

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation phase. As most Big 4 firms are competitive as far as salaries, they are pretty fixed by region.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY in September 2013.

    Interview

    I started with a behavioral interview for an hour on campus. I was then invited for an on-site all day interview which started with breakfast and then 3 back to back interviews. The breakfast was more around seeing us in a relaxed social setting. Then we had another behavioral interview, followed by a case study that required one to show their thought process in solving a problem and the interviewer ends by showing you how what you say aligns to the EY methodology.Finally had a technical interview where you answer a variety of questions on cybersecurity.
