Audit Staff Interview

Audit Staff
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting. Went to first round on-campus interview with a partner on Oct. 16th and second round on-site interview with two senior managers on Nov. 21st. Both were one-to-one. The whole process, from first round interview to final decision making, took almost 5 weeks. However, the decision was made the next day right after the office visit.

Interview Question – Nothing technical. Most of them were conversational. I had three interviewers during the whole interview process. There was only one guy asking me many questions about my experience, like the best/worst team/people you've ever worked with, describing a time when you made a right/wrong decision, etc.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I like the company and people there. They are very nice and friendly. I didn't negotiate because the benefit or salary for new employees is basically identical in all of the big four.

Advisory Program Interview

Advisory Program
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through my schools career website. They got back to me in a couple of weeks saying I had an interview and a pre-night dinner. The dinner was really fun and I got to meet my interviewer. The interview was 30 minutes long and strictly behavioral. He went through my resume from top to bottom and asked me questions. They said I would hear in 7-10 days. There is also a writing sample that needs to be competed, which was not difficult.
About 7 days later I got the email saying I was not selected for the second round interview.

Interview Question – Why EY? What do you know about the position you applied for? Tell me about a difficult time in your internship.   Answer Question

Forensic Technology and Discovery Services/Internship Interview

Forensic Technology and Discovery Services/Internship
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2013.

Interview Details – I went to an information session for EY consulting on my campus, which is how I got interested in the company. I looked on our career services page and found a number of their listings. I chose to apply to the position that seemed to fit best with my specific engineering major (information and systems.)

I got the first round interview, which ended up being over the phone because the guy could not make it to campus that day. He asked questions about my resume and transcript and why EY and why his division. I got through to the second round NYC office visit. At the visit, there was a short presentation followed by a lunch where we sat down and met our greeters (people that walk you around to each interview and make you feel comfortable.) There were just two behavioral interviews with some very standard behavioral questions. These were in fact my first behavioral interviews ever and I did not feel properly prepared.

Overall, they make you feel very comfortable and it was a good experience. The FTDS department is only about 5 years old and growing quickly. The people are interested in what they do, and I got the idea that everyone takes the recruiting process very seriously despite how busy they are.

Interview Question – There was nothing too technical and they did not present any case questions. I was thrown off by the question, "what is your greatest technical strength and greatest technical weakness?"   View Answer
