Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application

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

Interview

The first round is phone interview with HR. It was behavioral interview. First introduced yourself. And then I was required to tell more about the project that was relevant to the practice I applied in Ernst Young. At the end, I was asked questions about how I would act in a particular situation.

Interview Questions

  • Maybe because it was the first round, there was nothing unexpected.   3 Answers

    Interview

    Fit interview with some behavior questions. Mostly see if I get along with them. The process was quite long, like 6 hour long. I met all the managerial staff of the team I interviewed with. Overall the experience was pleasant. I did not get an offer perhaps because I was under qualified.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    An external recruiter identified the opportunity and assisted in the recruitment process. An initial phone interview, then in-persons with multiple leaders. Fairly quick offer followed - easy conversational style of interviewers (one over lunch, one after work at a restaurant).

    Interview Questions

    • Hired into a technical practice but had no technical training, I needed to respond to how my "generalist" skill set would drive value in the technical practice.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Early in my career I negotiated more sign-on bonus and starting salary, but other offer details were appropriate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY (San Francisco, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The entire hiring process was smooth, but a little longer than I expected (10 weeks). My resume was submitted by a recruiter for ITAS. After 2-3 weeks they scheduled a telephonic interview. It was a half an hour discussion about my experience, which projects I have worked on, why I want to join E&Y, etc. The guy on the phone liked me and straightaway told me he was forwarding my name for the next step. After a few weeks, they flew me to San fransisco for face to face interviews. This was 4 half an hour discussions with a manager, senior manager, executive director and a partner. The questions were mostly behavioral - why I want to leave current company, why E&Y, etc. The manager and senior manager asked me resume questions about my experience, my opinions about certain technologies, what approach I would take for certain problems, etc. The other two guys only had get to know you kind of conversations. Overall everybody was friendly and nice. In just two days I received their verbal confirmation that they were going to make an offer, but it took 6 weeks to actually get the offer letter (I suppose the delay was because it was end of the year time). All in all, very good experience.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on salary. But they offered me a different location that works out better for me.
