    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Applied late but managed to get through to AC after a competency based interview session. Group exercise and mock project were good. Good chance to get to know employees there. However, I was not particularly keen on Actuary and this showed in the Partner interview. However, I must say that EY were brilliant throughout the process - no negatives at all. Very professional and friendly. Would still apply again!

    Audit Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of a one-on-one interview with a manager which was very much fit related questions (strengths/weaknesses, talk about a time..., goals in 5 years, etc). Was invited to a Partner interview the next day which was the same sort of conversation and one or two questions beyond a graduates capability - think it was just to see how I would operate under pressure.

    Interview Questions
    • As it was an FSO interview, I was asked how to price an interest rate swap. I waffled some answer together about discounting cashflows. The Partner informed me he was unsure too and was just curious to see my response :)   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The assessment centre was relatively relaxed and the interviewers were really friendly and honest about the work they do. The group interview involved a case study that was quite challenging, so make sure you keep watch of time and try to absorb as much information as you can.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial application was long and structured but easy to navigate through. If you make it through the application stage you're called to complete an online competency test. The next stage is a HR interview and then partner interview. For me, the process took less than two weeks from applying to being offered a position. I've heard it can take longer though
