    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on a Friday on campus and received a call the following Thursday that I got super day. Went to super day a week later on Friday. Got a call that Tuesday that I received the position. Deadline to respond was in 2 weeks. Got it extended to 4 weeks and eventually decided to accept the offer last minute.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study was about 2 different banks, one online and the other retail, that were going to merge and how they can help eachother out given that the retail bank is going through some legal issues after the 2008 crisis. the online bank has no atms and the retail bank has no iphone apps/proper website banking system. Only 30 minutes to read case study, take notes, and answer interviewer's questions. It was fairly easy since we had such a short time to talk and I spent 10/15 minutes reading the case study and another 5 discussing my resume.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school and had an on-campus interview (1:1). Pretty standard behavioral interview, nothing fancy. Made it to 2nd round in NY and had two 1:1 interviews with a manager and partner. All very nice people. Still, only behaviorals. Went out to lunch with staff members and was treated to a sushi lunch (on their tab of course). Great day overall. Got the offer two days later and accepted.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at EY in May 2011.

    Received a call through E&Y's corporate recruiter and talked over the phone for 10 minutes. Then I was scheduled on call with a senior manager.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at EY in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was easy 1 on 1 with one person. Basically just talked about the resume and asked behavioral questions such as what is a time you failed and what did you do to fix it and what if a member in your team was not doing there work, how would you approach them. Then had to do a writing sample on my own. Didnt get the offer though

    Advisory Manager Interview

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

    The process took a dayinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview went well, the firm has been very engaged and communicative through out the process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There is supposedly offer on the table, appears to be a tussle with regards to disclosure of information. Why does EY need a candidate's W-2 information to make a competitive offer ? Is it because they are unable to value talent ( concerning as this is an advisory firm charging for valuations) or because they like to make low ball offers to candidates?
    I am curious if others have been required to provide the same ?

    Assurance Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school career service and got an on-campus interview weeks after. Invited to an E&Y Superday few days after the first interview, and the visit was scheduled at the 5 Time Square address. The Superday started with a overview of E&Y and the interviews were way easier than I thought, two 30-min sections with a partner and a senior manager. Both asked me to tell a story about myself. No behavioral question, no brain teaser, no group case, no writing sample. Nice lunch with an assurance staff and filled in an info sheet to close that day. Got a call from the recruiter two weeks later (horrible two weeks for me) and took me another two weeks to receive my offer letter in mail.

    Accounting Interview

    The process took a dayinterviewed at EY in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    The one on one interview itself was everything I had been told to expect. It consisted of a lot of questions of my personality and experiences I had in the past. Most of them focused on group work and wanted to see how well I worked with others. The interviewer also described the job role thoroughly and wanted to make sure I had fully understood what position they were interviewing me for.

    Overall it was a great interview and really what I had expected - personality and group experiences. Unfortunately I was not lucky enough to get an offer.
