    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus first round interview. Then got the on-site interview one month later.

    The on-campus interview is basically walking through the resume and asking me research related questions. The on-site interview is a mixture between technical and behavioral questions. The behavioral questions are very standard and like in any interview book. One question they repeatedly ask is that if you can sustain long hours of work if there is a upcoming urgent issue. The technical questions are very general. They do not ask you to solve specific math or coding problems, but ask you to describe the high-level strategy for analyzing a data set for a particular problem. For example, what model to use for a XX data set, what can be the typical problems, etc..

    Interview Questions
    • You utilize a model for a real data set. This model has a set of assumptions. How do you know that these assumptions are consistent with the real data?   View Answer
    • Describe a survival model that you have experience with.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The process took about a month. I applied through my career center and got a decision for first interview in a week. The first round interview consisted of behavioral questions and resume review. The second interview confirmation was sent within the next day. EY's office interview was more conversational than structured. They really wanted to see if your personality would fit the firm. I received a call within the next day with the offer.

    Process lasted for a month and half. Handed in my resume through my school. Had a first round on campus interview with two interviewers.

    Advisory Consultant Program- Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through Campus Recruiting Center. First round interviews were held on campus and consisted of a behavioral interview with a Senior Manager or a Partner. Everything was very casual and relaxed. The interviewer was very friendly and open for the dialogue. Got the invite for the Super day the next week.
    For the second round of interviews (aka Super day) I was taken to Dallas, TX. There we had a pre interview networking session, which I highly recommend to attend (if you are lucky enough, you may meet your interviewers there). The next day I had 3 back-to-back interviews 45 minute each with Senior Managers/Partners: two behavioral, and one case interview. Again, all the interviewers were very friendly and helpful. In about a week I got a call with the job offer notification.

    Interview Questions
    • The case was pretty big (5 pages) for 45 minutes, make sure you practice a lot with note taking, because they collect everything after you are done with the case.
      Behavioral questions were: Why EY, Why consulting, Why [insert our department here], Strengths/Weaknesses, Leadership, Teamwork, Conflict. Make sure you know your resume and can elaborate on each and every point in it. Also, S.T.A.R. framework is really helpful
