    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I went for a walk in interview for the Tax analyst position.
    First round was Communication test. They gave us 4 topics, had to choose one and speak on it. Fairly simple. Few selected ppl qualified for the next round which was aptitude test. It was a bit tough and in 3 sections. Those who qualified were called for the next round that is HR the next day. HR round was very basic, sort of an introduction.
    Now am waiting for the Technical round call, hopefully soon, its been a week already.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    1st Round - We were given 4 topics and we had to choose one and speak about it for more than a minute. They eliminated 15 out of 17 candidates at that round as they told communication was of most importance in EY.
    2nd Round - A Written Test where first an e-mail drafting question will be given and 5 minutes to draft. Later, aptitude consisting of Accounts, English and Logical Reasoning. 20 questions each ... 20 minutes
    3rd Round- A HR round where one would ask questions related to your personal front and resume related.( no one gets eliminated here)
    4th Round - A panel interview with 3 team leaders. went on for nearly 30 minutes and was asked questions from resume to my project and also accounts and tax related.(be prepared on all topics related to process . .as well as basic accounts and finance stuff)
    5th Round - A Managerial interview where not much technical questions was asked.. It was relatively easy when compared to panel interview.
    6th Round - An Asst Director of the particular process took this round. It was for nearly 5-10 minutes... it was more like a 'get to know each other' kind of a round.
