    Audit Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was pretty easy. The partner just talked about recent news and why I choose accounting. I really had a good impression on EY because the pre night in our school was so huge and people I talked to were so nice. But the second round interview was just DISAPPOINTING. HR set two senior associates to interview me and I can feel during the interview process that both of them did not want to talk to me and just wanted to get back to their work. I got the rejection letter two days later. I don't think I deserve the rejection letter and was unqualified. (being told I have a great personality by other people, got 3.8 GPA and plenty of working/internship experience) I was really disappointed that EY does not pay that much attention to interview candidates (only two senior associates for second round? really?). If you do not have any experience people to do the interview, then don't invite people down to NYC for second round!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at EY in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to this position posted on LinkedIn. After few days, I received and email from a HHRR assistant inviting me to an interview the week after.
    The day I had the interview, I arrived to their office as well other 9 persons did at the same time. We were all contacted to a group interview for the same position, not warned before that would be a group interview.
    The meeting lasted 90 minutes aprox. On the meeting were 4 managers of EY; 3 of them asked every candidate 1 or 2 questions about their experience and interest on the position.
    Also, we had a short questionnaire were 4 situations were described and we had to take actions about each one. These questions demanded lateral thinking among financial basic knowledge. We had 15 minutes to respond. After that, we reviewed the cases and looked for the correct answer with the lead of the managers.
    Couple of days after, 2 or 3, I was advised that I was not chosen for the position.

    Financial Management Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews with EY: phone interview with internal recruiter (early Sept), phone interview with FMA manager (mid Sept), and skype interview with regional manager (early Oct). My final interview with EY ended with the regional mgr considering me for a higher up position within the company. I followed up three times thereafter, and never received a definitive response as to whether or not they'd hire me. They still have yet to call me back. A HUGE waste of my time, and extremely unprofessional!

    Interview Details

    I went through the Sydney Career Compass Program and was given the chance to apply early for the Vacationer Program. I was accepted to the Assessment centre, which consisted of an individual one hour interview with a Partner and Senior Manager, and then a group activity which was overseen by a few staff members. The group activity isn't challenging or technically difficult, it is really designed to test how you work in a team, and your critical thinking processes.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    It took few weeks to get an interview. I had it with the two managers of the department. I did not have the impression that the two managers were well prepared and were not really interested in me as a person. It was a very technical interview and they mainly wanted to know what I like about their company. After that, they started with brainteaser.
