    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Upon arriving at EY, I met with my campus recruiter and was briefed on what the day will entail. Following this, I was interviewed by 2 different employees: a manager and a partner. Both of the interviews were conversational and very laid back. The manager and partner seemed genuinely interested in me and made me feel very comfortable. I was only asked two questions during the interview. After the interviews, I had lunch with my greeter and then was sent home. I received a call the following day with an offer and the informal offer arrived the next day.

    Interview

    The first round interview is via phone. All about your experience on the resume. I received the notification of next round in the evening of the first interview. On-site interview. Arrive in New York the day before the interview. On the day of interview, first welcome session. Everybody introduced himself, and then the recruiter played a slide show of the company. Two managers introduced the general information of the company, e.g. how they operates. Then they asked the candidates if we had questions. After that is a group case study based on very brief introduction given by EY. 20 minutes discussion followed by 15 minute presentation. Everyone should present in this session. Following that are three individual interviews. Most of the questions are related to your experience and behavior. The interview finished here and helpers led us to lunch. After that we went back to the office and wrapped up the interview. Two and a half weeks later I was informed that I was declined.

    I had a phone interview with someone from North Carolina she was very nice and then I got a phone call the next day and was invited for an office interview. When I first arrived we all met in a meeting room and met with one of the partners and he shared some of his experiences in public accounting and his international experience. After we all split up and had 2 half hour interviews. I met with 1 manager and 1 partner. One of the people I interviewed was kind of difficult to understand and it didn't go as well as I hoped. After they took us out for lunch and the day was over.

    Interview

    I applied through college/university. A recruiter got back to me around 1-2 weeks later to schedule a phone interview. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the firm - she asked a set of behavioral questions regarding your interests, leadership style, teamwork experience, work experience, extracurriculars, etc. I got invited in a few days later for the NY office visit superday. The superday consisted of a presentation by some senior managers/partners, a Q&A panel composed of current workers, and interviews with two senior managers. Got the offer a week and a half later. Very friendly and top class throughout the whole process - just know yourself, what you bring to the table, and be personable!
