    Interview

    The hiring process took a few months and included about 6 interviews. This took a long time since they had an issue with their location needs that was not resolved very quickly. Overall, they were pretty responsive and I ended up with a better position than what I applied for.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were typical behavioral and case questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by "Superday", but it was only a 30 minute interview with 2 managers. The questions were very easy fit questions and it was relaxed environment. You could tell that the managers enjoyed working there, as they raved about the firm's culture. Ultimately decided that the position wouldn't utilize my background and took a different position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied through college career center. The process took a week, and I was notified for an on campus interview. The first round was behavior by a senior manager. The process was very chill and way less structural compared other big four. They really just wanted to know you as a person. The second round was what they called superday. We were invited to Dallas for on Thursday following a reception, where you can meet all interviewers and other candidates. FOOD AND ROOMS WERE AMAZING! Before the interview started the second day, a partner talked to us about EY and MAKE SURE ASK QUESTIONS AFTERWARDS!!!! Then 2 behavior and 1 case study. I believe behavior interviews were more important than the case one, but make sure to demonstrate strong communication skills during the case interview. A shuttle will send you to airports afterwards.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interviewing was detailed and thorough. Most of the questions focused on technology capabilities and process improvement experience. Interviewers were very amiable and the questions were mostly behavioral based. The process was more lengthy than I had anticipated, with an initial interview with a recruiter, followed up with a phone interview with a Manager. I then had a day long interview session of 1:1 interviews and a 2:1 interview with a Partner & Sr. Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question asked was my knowledge of and experience with, multiple different ERPs and bolt-on software.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, EY tells you what you will make.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Penn State University, PA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Had on campus interviews and preceded to the Super Day event. The super day event consisted of a meet and greet the night before and three back-to back - to back interviews with a Managers, Senior Manager, and a Partner. One interview was a case study, the other was the typical behavior based interview, and the third interview was simply attempting to figure out who you are as a person, your interests, and how you fit into the culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly a conversational based interview, they asked me a case study question, I believe it was about bottlenecks. Talked about my interests with the Partner, pretty straightforward process.Mostly behavior based questions, i.e. tell me about a time when... These can be prepared for in any fashion, the STAR method is helpful. I didn't receive any obscure question, i.e. how many golf balls can fit in this room, it was pretty straightforward.   1 Answer

    Differs everywhere but if it is a campus hire situation, there will be an on campus intervew and if that goes well, you would be called in for a superday interview with 3 or more managers/senior managers/partners and you get taken out for lunch on the house!
