    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process was very smooth. They interviewed on campus, then brought people in for super days at the office. The super day consisted of 3 interviews - 2 behavioral and 1 case study. Everyone I met was very nice and excited for the applicants to be there. They place you with a recent hire to take you to each interview, which helped ease nerves and make the transitions run more smoothly. They followed up about a week after the super day with a phone call to tell me about the offer.

    Interview

    Interview was through their Emerging Leaders Program. I had a positive experience. They were very helpful and interviewer was a nice guy. Just make sure to come prepared with questions because the interviewer usually leaves time at the end for your questions and it can really turn your interview around

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I first applied on my Campus recruitment website for EY's Emerging Leaders Program. I then had one on-campus interview with a staff member. All behavioral questions. Don't forget to cater your answers so that you are highlighting your skills that are also important to EY.. Then, I had two in-office interviews. One with a manager and one with a partner. The partner's interview was a little difficult because she just wanted me to ask questions. No behavioral questions were asked. After my interviews, there was a one-on-one lunch with a staff member. Overall, it was a great experience. Everyone I interviewed with made me feel so comfortable. I heard back within a few days that I was offered a spot for the Emerging Leaders Program. Since I am interested in Advisory, in order to be offered an internship offer after the Emerging Leaders Program I needed to have a case study interview. I was the most nervous for this but it was not at all like I feared. You are given a case to read and then you talk about it with an EY employee. They really try and help you relax and think out the problems/solutions. I actually really enjoyed the case study. I got a call the next morning offering me the internship.

    Advisory Services Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    You started with a phone screening with the recruiter. Recruiters will discuss what you want in your career path and evaluate whether you are a fit for the positions they are looking for. Then they would let you know whether they would like to proceed to next step. If you get to the next step, you would get to meet with a Senior who would greet you during the interview day. (Note: the individual is evaluating if you are a good fit or not even though it is an unofficial opinion) Then you would interview with at least 2 Senior Managers (maybe a combination of 1 Manager and 1 Senior Manager depending upon the position they are looking for). Then the last round is to meet with the partner of the practice. The interview questions are all behavioral questions about the practice you are applying for. "What would you do if ABC happened? How would you handle this situation?" The tips are you need to be customer-oriented and try to address "HOW" you would handle things. There is no right answer. It is all about how and why you would do things in a certain way or differently.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    First round on campus interview was with a partner who was very welcoming and friendly. I had a great conversation with her and I got to the second round office visit. That interview consisted of three 30 minute interviews, one partner and 2 managers. The partner didn't seem like she had prepared anything at all to ask me, and it was an awkward 30 minutes of slow, pointless questions. I didn't feel like she cared to be speaking with me at all. I wasn't surprised that I didn't get the offer, even though the other 2 interviews went alright.
