    Advisory Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EY in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with an HR representative asking very basic information regarding previous jobs, salary expectations, current salary, etc. Week later phone interview with a Manager. It was in-depth conversation with some behavioral questions and some technical questions. They want to get a sense of whether or not you like this particular field and whether or not you would fit in their team. One day later HR rep scheduled a superday at the NY office. 6 1:1 interviews with managers, directors, and staff. Standard behavioral questions, but they really dug deep on technical questions. I couldn't answer most of the technical stuff because my knowledge and expertise is simply not up to their level, but they just want to see how you react to these types of situations. They are looking for enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Two weeks later I get a phone call from the hiring manager explaining that they liked me a lot and the feedback was very positive and they continued the job offer process for about two more weeks of filling out paperwork and various forms. About four weeks after I interviewed at the superday they email me the offer letter.

    I went over and beyond with interview preparation and research. I honestly do not think I would have gotten this far without going at least 110%.

    Interview Questions
    • What exactly do you do at your current job? It appears you do little to no analysis with the model.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate, but I assume the more experience you have the better your chances are, but EY is a very structured company so salaries at each level have minimums and maximums, so be prepared and you should expect what you deserve.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at EY in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for a phone interview. After a 45 minute phone interview, which consisted of "telling her about myself," and a short case, the campus recruiter let me know that I'd be going to the New York office to interview with four more senior associates.

    On the super day, the interviews started at 11, and all four interviews were basically the same: "tell me about yourself/run me through your resume," and then a market sizing case question. There was also a writing sample with a case question and three brain teasers.

    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't like the culture. All the interviewers were ridiculously stoic and non-responsive.
