    Interview Details

    It is campus recruiting. Submitted my resume and transcript (no cover letter needed) on career center's website and offered first round interview a week later. My interviewer was friendly and at some point, I asked her a question and she took the conversation. Got an in-house interview a week later and will go to SF next Friday.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty standard questions. Go through the resume and ask a few questions about my experience. The rest of the interview is conversational.   Answer Question

Second round interviews were basically the same thing but with a case study.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I learned of the opportunity through an adviser at my University and applied. The next day I received an email asking to meet with me for a One-on-One, which probably resulted from me getting a good word put in by my adviser. Two weeks later I met with the recruiter on campus, the interview process was very simple just her informing me of all the specifics of the program and questions regarding things I had on my resume as well as the classic "tell me about yourself". This lasted for 30 minutes and went well. A little over two weeks later I received a phone call about an in office interview that would take place 3 days later. The interview consisted of meeting with a Manager and a Partner individually the process took a little over an hour. I had an escort to and from each interview. The interviews were very casual no seriously hard questions. They wanted to see if I was a good fit for the company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took about a month. I applied through my career center and got a decision for first interview in a week. The first round interview consisted of behavioral questions and resume review. The second interview confirmation was sent within the next day. EY's office interview was more conversational than structured. They really wanted to see if your personality would fit the firm. I received a call within the next day with the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started by applying through campus job website. Was selected for an on campus interview. Interviewed with a manager, very relaxed, went over resume. Very conversational, asked about teamwork and leadership, but also just talked about career path and studies in general. Heard back about 2 and a half weeks after on campus interview, inviting me to an office visit or "superday". That day I was given a welcome presentation, which was followed by 2 interviews back to back, and then was taken out to a lunch. "Superday" experience was fantastic, made very comfortable, and everyone was very welcoming. Interviews were similar to on-campus, focused less on specific questions. Went over resume but they were more focused on what my career aspirations were, why EY, why accounting. Again very conversational, they liked to talk about how they got to EY and their careers. Got a call less than an hour after the interview offering me a position. Written offer a few days later.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on campus recruiting, got first round on campus interview, then flew to have second round interview in office. All questions were behavioral/about your resume. Talking with other interviewees, I think it was a consensus that the first round interview was actually more difficult and more serious while the second round superday interviews were more laid-back. So if you get an in-office interview, know that your chances are pretty good!
