Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY (Dallas, TX) in March 2015.

Interview

Applied via the company careers portal and had received an email some weeks later from one of the Asst. Directors of Talent recruiting requesting a phone interview. The interview was of standard nature and the interviewer was very pleasant. As the phone discussion concluded, the interviewer stated that she had a few more candidates to interview and that I would receive a response back within the week. I did receive a personal email response back from the interviewer stating that after a "difficult decision" process, they decided to move forward with other candidates. Shortly after, I noticed on LinkedIn that there was a posting for a Project Manager position at EY with a remarkably similar description of the position I had interviewed for. When I had contacted the Assistant Director back inquiring about the similarity, she had explained that this new posting was indeed the same position I had interviewed for and that they had re-posted the position under a different name. Additionally, she said the position was filled with an internal candidate. I would have appreciated a bit more honesty on the firm's part regarding open Project Manager positions at EY rather than going through the motions of wasting candidate's time when they already knew they were going to fill the position with an internal candidate. Not a very positive representation of the firm's culture.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY (Bangalore (India)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Was called for a telephonic interview; Subsequently was called for a F2F interview and post the discussion had a HR interview where I was told I cleared the interview and I would have to have a discussion with the Exec Director and the Partner before being given an offer. A week and half later, I got a call asking to be available for a discussion with the ED. After waiting for an hour from the scheduled time, I tried reaching the board line numbers from where I got the call, but in vain. The number in BLR is never answered. Finally HR called me next week and told me that his team will schedule time with the ED and get back to me. Its been a week since, but no response and the HR is not even responding to messages. Quite appalled at the attitude of EY HR to prospective employees. While its understandable that an ED has a lot at stake, its the recruitment team to keep the candidates informed.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at EY (Alpharetta, GA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    It was for a contract PM role through a firm, 1st phone interview the person was a no show, so I wasted 30 minutes sitting on a conference call that no one bothered to cancel, 3 days later I have a phone interview and was requested to come in for a face to face within a week. The hiring manager was fair and respectful, but then I had to interview with a guy who would only be my peer and the man seemed insane, he was so offensive and aggressive. In all of my professional career I have never been spoken to in that manner. He was foreign and maybe his communication style is just different, his tone and how he processed information was something to behold. He apparently has the PMBOK memorized and wants the candidate to quote it exactly as it's written or he feels you don't know what you talking about. It was the worst experience of my life. The man was all but yelling at me and saying I didn't ask you that answer my question. If I wasn't there on behalf of staffing firm I would have gotten my stuff and walked out, because I don't allow anyone to speak to me in such a degrading manner.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY (Atlanta, GA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Interview started with a detailed telephone screening, next was a phone interview with a hiring manager, just looking more into my back ground. I have the feeling my resume was too "bouncy" for them as i have worked contact many places in the last 4 years. Next was a video conference as I was working out of town and this was set up in their NO Office. Finally, a colleague 30 telephone interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EY in July 2008.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with E&Y. One phone interview and a day of interviews with senior management. The process was very painless. The company seems to be very interested in making sure that its employees are the best trained and capable employees they can get. Their motto is that they want people who have a work/life balance. It is highly irregular for a person not to leave at a reasonable hour. Honestly it was seen as a negative.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a pretty good offer from the company. Don't under value yourself. If they really want you, they'll pay.
