    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had a phone interview, followed by an in person interview with 2 people separately and a writing assignment. There were no trick questions, but good questions relevant to the position. Watch the video on the website regarding preparing for the interview. Overall very impressed with the courtesy, professionalism and communication of the company. They even called to tell me I did not get the position, which is almost unheard of these days. Reinforced to me that this a great company!

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    EY interviews on campus for both their leadership program and for full-time summer/winter internships. After one round of campus interviews, you are invited to the office for a second interview if you pass the first one. I interviewed with about 4 different people at all different levels in the company, from senior managers to a partner. Mostly background info and getting to know you based on your resume. Not too difficult or strenous.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too hard- only a few behavioral questions such as a time you exhibited leadership skills   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview. No preparation is needed really. Be prepared to go over your resume and talk about your experiences. Management is very friendly and keen to hear about you. There is a 50 word minimum so I guess I will keep typing nonsense and hope that glassdoor doesn't pick it up.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    E&Y did a great job of introducing me to their culture, but not their staff. They gave a presentation at my school where their corporate ideals very well (globalization, leadership, entrepreneurship, etc.), but there were no tax partners or managers present. I had hoped to meet one during the interview, but it ended up being with a campus recruiter instead. I felt that they didn't take my candidacy seriously. Why would they even offer me an interview when I haven't even met any of the people in charge?
