They asked questions about standard accounting applications that you learn in school, be ready to answer these questions and explain your answer. You need to know a lot about the accounting industry and be ready to learn because they teach you a lot of stuff that you should be able to pick up on the fly.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY) in December 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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
