    Assurance Staff Interview

    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EY (Louisville, KY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by phone. Since this was the case, I was pleased with the level of care that human resources placed into the conversation. Particularly, I appreciated the questions about my concerns and interests outside of school. However, it was obvious that academics mattered substantially in the hiring process. I recommend researching all aspects of any assurance or advisory role, as well as understanding the dynamics of your location, when interviewing with E&Y.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions on leadership capacity and previous leadership experiences, as well as how others respect your potential as a leader.   Answer Question

    Interview

    College Recruiting - Made sure to attend my college recruiting day (since this is the biggest area of their new hires for both internships and full time positions) and talked to as MANY people as possible. This is the only way to really impress them and get notices. Talking to 1 person will most likely not get you an interview, unless you are something special.

    First-Round Interview - On campus. Typical behavioral questions. "Name a time when you failed on a project, how did you respond, etc."

    Second-Round Interview - At office of your choosing. 3 more behavioral interviews. Case study. All easy, just be yourself.

    • Case study. On implementing technology for a client.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Just regular resume question and several behavioral questions. But we had a pre night dinner and I think maybe I should have shown the attitude on that night. But overall, it is conversational and no thing really hard.
