I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in May 2014.
Interview Details – The whole process took exactly one month. Contacted by EY Recruiter beginning of May, set up phone interview. Waited 4 business days, had phone interview, did a written assessment. 5 days later, was invited to a panel interview, met with 3 managers (attorneys). They were really chill and down to earth. I wasn't nervous at all. A week later, a recruiter called to ask how the interview went and said they'll have a decision soon. 3 days after not hearing back, called back, and was offered the position (they claimed they wanted to have all the paperwork finalized before contacting for offer). After all, an extremely pleasant and speedy process.

Interview Details – Quite possibly THE worst recruitment process I have ever experienced.
Having submitted an online application for a role, I had an initial telephone interview (with the recruiter) which went well. A day later I was asked for my availability for a face to face interview. I duly provided this but heard nothing for three weeks - then an email asking again for availability. After another 2 weeks I received an email inviting me in for a f2f interview. I confirmed this was fine. A day before the interview was due to take place I received a call from the recruiter saying the role was being placed on hold for 3 weeks and so the interview was cancelled. No further explanation as to why but she advised she would be in touch in a few weeks to rearrange. I chased once but no response so gave up on that application.
Whilst disappointed and frustrated by this experience, I gave them the benefit of doubt and applied for a different role. I created my application in their online system - having completed a draft I exited the system leaving it in "draft" status and planned to return to it the next day to finalise and submit it. The next morning I received one of their automated rejection emails for that role - but I hadn't actually submitted my application! I emailed the recruiter who I had been liaising with for the previous role, querying whether this was an error and whether it was still worth finalising and submitting the CV. She passed the buck to a colleague who I emailed but never heard back from. Needless to say, I won't be applying to EY again!
It's seriously worrying that EY are in the business of advising other companies on talent & recruitment strategies when their own processes/procedures are beyond amateur!

Interview Details – EY interviews on campus for both their leadership program and for full-time summer/winter internships. After one round of campus interviews, you are invited to the office for a second interview if you pass the first one. I interviewed with about 4 different people at all different levels in the company, from senior managers to a partner. Mostly background info and getting to know you based on your resume. Not too difficult or strenous.
