Audit Senior Interview

Audit Senior
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in September 2013.

Interview Details – Interview process began after initial contact with a brief phone call with the recruiter. Some initial questions were asked to clarify my experience and knowledge. A few weeks later I had a phone interview with a partner from the recruiting office. A few weeks after that I went in for an office visit. Questions ranged from general inquiries into my past experience to reasons for wanting to leave my current firm. The feel of the office was very good, everyone was 'real' and approachable. I identified with them more than other big4 offices I had visited.

Interview Question – Would you prefer to come on with a lot of responsibility and a very steep learning curve or less responsibility with more time to learn the ropes?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Recruiter made oral offer via phone, very low pressure. I was offered time to consider, although I opted to accept immediately.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at EY in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was great. Everyone was extremely friendly from the partners down to the staff. The office really does have a tight knit feel and that was a huge attraction for me.
