I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at EY in June 2010.
Interview Details – Applied for the Emerging Leaders Program via my school's career center website. Had to submit a resume and cover letter, nothing out of the ordinary.

Performance Improvement Transformation and Collaboration Pool Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2012.
Interview Details – The hiring process was pretty standard. First round interviews were on campus, with an interview pre-night at a local bowling alley beforehand. Second round interviews were in the EY office in LA for a super day, which included a lunch and three interviews - behavioral, case, behavioral.
Interview Question – There really were no curveball questions asked. All questions were pretty reasonable, including the case, which again was not any more difficult than other case questions asked. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The interview process for EY Advisory occurs too early to even consider other consulting firms. I'm looking mostly at the Big 3, so I'll likely have to turn this offer down even before opportunities arise for other interviews.
Experienced Staff Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in October 2012.
Interview Details – I emailed my resume to a recruiter and they contacted me for interviews. Two phone interviews one with HR, the other with a partner. I was then called in for an in-office interview, where I interviewed with 4 people in total, successively. A senior, Manager, Senior Manager and Partner. All were conversational and I had to go over my resume. They weren't difficult and I quite enjoyed them. I was an auditor with PWC before this, so it certainly. Everyone was very nice, much better than the interviews I went through when I got into PWC. I'm looking forward to working at E&Y. The culture is certainly more friendly.
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate, but the offer was better than I expected.
