Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EY (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in March 2014.

Interview

Sehr wertschätzend, fordernd, auf den speziellen Fall zugeschnitten. Das Gespräch wurde vom Partner selbst durchgeführt. Dabei wurden neben den allgemeinen Themen (Jobumfeld, Gehalt, Aufgaben,etc.) auch Cases geprüft. Es handelte sich dabei um zwei Brain Teaser und ein Beratungssituation. Dauer des Gespräches war insgesamt etwa 60 Minuten. Dem ging allerdings im Vorfeld ein eher informelles Abendessen zum gegenseitigen Kennenlernen (auf Senior Manager Ebene) voran.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The recruitment process was quite prolonged but they kept in good contact during the process. All administration was handled by a single point of contact, which made it very easy to follow and you knew who to contact with questions. All interviewers I met with were very kind and professional and felt like unexpectedly warm persons that were very down-to-earth and relaxed.
    Only negative experience was that I was asked to do a guesstimate, which feels strange as a senior hire.

    Interview Questions

    • If you got hired and you and me sat here together in 3 years time and your were very dissatisfied with how these 3 years would have gone; can you describe what happened and how they were?   Answer Question

    1st interview is with an EY HR representative over the phone. About 10-15 mins where they ask why you want to join EY and why you are leaving your current firm.
    Then another phone interview by Senior Manager on team that you will be working on. This lasts approximately 45 mins. Most of the questions are behavioral and also walking through them your resume.
    Then you come in for a super day. Four interviews are done by different Senior Managers on team. They are about 30 minutes each. The super day lasts half a day at the EY offices.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. I interviewed for the position at Enterprise Intelligence within the Financial Services Office, New York. The first round was phone interview with a senior manager. It was pretty straight forward and pleasant. More of conversational, went on for half an hour. I was then shortlisted to appear for their in person interview round called EY SUPERDAY in New York. The interview started at 10:30 am and ended 12:30 pm. There were 4 in person interviews for 30 mins each - 2 managers, 1 Senior Manager and 1 Recruiter. All of them were mostly behavioral and situation based - tell us about your experience, why EY, how would you handle a difficult boss, how do you work in teams etc. Overall, the experience was pleasant and I was satisfied the way I performed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    It took few weeks to get an interview. I had it with the two managers of the department. I did not have the impression that the two managers were well prepared and were not really interested in me as a person. It was a very technical interview and they mainly wanted to know what I like about their company. After that, they started with brainteaser.
