    I applied through the company website. I got a call from recruiter within 3 days (on a tuesday). She interviewed me over th phone for 30 minutes. Later she scheduled an interview with a senior manager day after (on a Thursday), which was followed by series of 1:1 interview with partners and principals (on a friday). Total 8 interviews (2 Phone + 6 1:1). Later I was informed on Wednesday next week that the interviewers liked me. they wanted to make an offer. After almost 2 weeks actual offer was made. later they started the Background investigation and rest of the formalities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Three steps: Phone interview, financial statement case and on-site including a writing test. The phone interview is quiet normal, tell me about yourself and some easy behavioral questions. On-site interview is not easy, including four interviews with three manager and one president. Be prepared to answer every question on your resume and also be prepared to answer some very tricky questions. Final interview actually is a case study about valuing the company, but they interviewer asked in a very obscure way so I even didn't realize what he want me to do.
