    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 Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews. one is on campus the other is on side
    The on campus one is pretty causal, just make the interviewer know you better. The on side one is pretty stressful. Two interviewers, back to back, asking very detail questions about any kind of things. Also went through the resume as well. But I don't think they really care about what you answers are. At the first 30 seconds, they have decided NOT YOU.

    Application Details

    interviewed at EY in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Rounds of testing and standard application form followed by a competency interview. During this interview they ask you to give examples of when you have displayed their core values. If you pass this you are invited to an assessment centre.

     During assessment there is more testing on numerical and logical questions, followed by a group case study where you expected to read and analyse data to come to a conclusion as a group.

    If you pass this you are then given a final interview by a partner. This is largely less formal, but still pressured.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through university career website and EY then got an invitation for an on-campus first round interview in addition to an online writing assessment where I had to write a reflection about a random topic. The interview was all behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected or difficult, the interviewer went through my resume and asked a bunch of questions regarding teamwork and how I handle conflicts in a team, and why I was interested in Advisory. The interview lasted for around 45 minutes and was more of a conversation rather than questions thrown at my face. I guess I did not radiate enough passion about the job.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    the total process took more than a month and still it is not completed,
    i went in for a Walk-in interview at ernst & young bangalore -india, it took some 5 or 6 hours total, there were around 100 people, most of the candidates were really competitive, and were filtered through GD, english language test, aptitude test and accounting test.
    These tests were the toughest yet i have faced, because of the difficulty of question and more importantly the strict adherence to time limits by hr people.

    • first was GD/public speaking, english language communication test, aptitude test, accounting test, got through them all and is now called for next round.   Answer Question
