Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

Interview Details

Hiring and interview process was expedited rather quickly. Spoke to a couple of campus recruiters from EY FSO office on the phone before the formal phone interview. Following the phone interview I was asked to attend a "super-day" in their New York, NY office. The day began with meeting senior partners, followed by two separate interviews by lower level partners.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at EY in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    1st round on campus is a 1-hr intreview. 30 mins behavioral and 30 mins for a case interview. the 2nd round is most critical and the final round. It has 4 back-to-back interviews of 45 mins each. Out of the 4 interviews, 2 were behavioral, 1 was a team-case presentation and 1 was an individual case interview. The interview process is fairly conversational and they will not stress you out at any point of time. The most important is the case interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    3 rounds of interviews: HR, 2 senior advisors, one manager. HR: fit questions, senior advisors: what do you know about the firm, manager: brainteasers, mini case-studies. The questions were fairly easy and the interviewers were very helpful and welcoming. Overall I did not feel any pressure. It is absolutely necessary to study their website before the interview. It is also useful to know some recent news about Ernst & Young.
