    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Online application, psychometric tests, this was situational first then numerical and verbal reasoning, I found EY took more days than the average company at getting back to you with results. I was invited to a face-to-face interview within a week of completing the test. The interview was competency based and really focused on past examples.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Applied late but managed to get through to AC after a competency based interview session. Group exercise and mock project were good. Good chance to get to know employees there. However, I was not particularly keen on Actuary and this showed in the Partner interview. However, I must say that EY were brilliant throughout the process - no negatives at all. Very professional and friendly. Would still apply again!

    Interview Details

    HR interview, 1st interview with senior manager and 2nd stage interview with partner. For the last interview, I had to make a presentation on a general question.

    Data Analytics Executive At Forensic Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were three interviews. First was telephone screening interview with 3 detailed technical questions.

    The second was onsite with a manager. It was a very technical interview using whiteboard to demonstrate SQL skills and also doing a test in front of the manager about software in general, algorithms, development, and regular expressions. If you have CS background, it is a very easy test. Also, they would go through the answers with you and discuss them helping you to answer correctly.

    Third interview is with directors, business and technical. The latter gave a case study on how to apply advanced data analytics techniques on a problem within a fraud suspicion case in financial services. The other would ask typical competency questions and your motivation to join the team.

    Interview Questions
    • In SQL when you do a join with another table where column value can be NULL, what would be the outcome of join in respect to NULL values.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied through college or university and the process took 1 month - interviewed at EY in June 2014. I was able to apply through college recruiting. I didn't have much finance background, so they didn't ask any technical questions, so much of the interview was aptitude, verbal and logical reasoning and why I wanted to work as a Consultant at EY.

    Personally I did use The Ultimate Career Interview App for iOS to learn and prepare for the EY Interview Questions and most of the questions where in the app. For me it was very helpful to see the questions and from then on I prepared my answers.
