Senior Consultant II Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in September 2010.
Interview Details – Experience with the recruiter out of NYC was less than desirable although she did ensure that the process moved along quickly. I had two telephone screenings with her, the second seemed to be a repeat of the first phone screening.
Telephone interview with a Managing Director that concentrated on default management. He was very open and asked a little about my background. Interview was simple. He cussed four times during the call which was entertaining. I later met him at a conference. What he was like on the call was exactly like he was in person.
Final interviews came during a 'Super Day'. They bring you in to meet four people: manager, senior manager, partner and recruiter (same one from above- who asked the same questions again from the phone screenings). Interviews were fairly easy. Most of the questions were about my background or the economy, minimal technical questions- not all that challenging.
At the conclusion of your 'Super Day', the final interviewer left. Nobody returned to say thanks, walk me out or anything. I waited a half hour and eventually left since the Admins said that the interviewers were in other meetings or at lunch.
Interview Question – The manager (no Sr Manager) began asking questions before I even had an opportunity to sit in the conference room. He asked about my thoughts around housing crisis; the banks roles in it, the borrowers roles...
The senior manager (now Director) asked a lot of mortgage underwriting questions (my background). After 20 minutes of underwriting questions, he explained that he wanted to buy a vacation home and that he wanted to know how underwriters would evaluate him. He indicated that the explanation was important as I would be client facing and he wanted to know that I was comfortable explaining ideas. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Recruiter made the offer over the phone and allowed me to pick which city I would relocate: Charlotte, Dallas or DC.
