    On campus recruiting, introduced myself, went through my resume, very few behavioral questions, the interviewer seemed super busy on his laptop, taking notes or something so actually didn't ask many questions. I was the last interviewee that day, after wrapping up, we chatted a bit.

    Advisory Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I had multiple interviews with competency leaders/execs and partners within the region across a three to four month process. Given level of firm resources, mixed with travel schedule, overall timeline took longer than anticipated.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions during the interview were as anticipated. I do not recall anything out of the ordinary. Given I came in as a Senior Manager, had to "defend" previous engagements that I managed as well as define previous revenue and sales goals.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Minimal negotiation. Salary bands are firm and if within the band - can negotiate some. However as you approach the upper limit, minimal ability to negotiate. Bands are not flexible

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gainesville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university at the career fair. EY held a bunch of different info sessions and luncheons that you could attend throughout the year. Attending these made me feel comfortable talking to the recruiter because I had previously met him and we built a relationship. This helped the interview process because we had a past connection and he seemed to take the interview very casually as a result.

    Interview Questions
    • Mainly resume stuff but a very behavioral like what was a challenge I had to overcome with the accounting school.   Answer Question
