Interview Details

Spent a lot of time focused on formulaic question and had a checklist of them. Interviewer ticked them off as he asked them, which I think, was indicative of a personality shared by other people I met from the firm.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EY in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at EY out of college is fairly simple. If you are there you are likely to get an offer in assurance. They are very meticulous about who they invite in for an interview so when they do pick you, you probably have an offer. The interviews are non technical and very informal.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY in November 2007.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with EY on my college campus. I had been to several of EYs on campus recruiting events. The interview was extremely laid back as I had already knew of the recruiters from the on campus events. We discussed my resume and any question I had about the position
