Tax Intern Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in May 2014.
Got an interview through campus recruiting. The first round interview took place on campus. First round interview questions were pretty easy. They just want to know who you are. Questions like "why tax? why accounting?". Then there were 3 recruiting events on campus.
Then the firm invites you for office visit, all expenses paid for. The second round interview was with partner and manager. They ask you almost the same questions like the first round interview. Make sure to ask a lot of questions and show that you're very interested.
- Which tax practice do you want to specialize in and why? Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in August 2012.
Interviews were conversational rather than technical. Everyone was very welcoming and did not have an intimidating presence. Just make sure to know what exactly is on your resume. Also, bring an updated resume copy. For some reason my interviewers had an old version of my resume, even though I had updated my information in the EY system. I provided them with an updated one. I suggest that before your interview starts, to make sure that they have your new resume and it they don't, hand them a new one.
- I was asked to discuss a recent tax article that I read that I found interesting. Answer Question
I did not negotiate.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2012.
I sent me resume in to the HR department and within days got an email setting up a phone interview. The phone interview was very easy-took about 30 minutes and asked me questions like "why I chose my university" and "why tax". No behavior questions.

I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2011.
Applied through my university and got the first-round interview. One on one where she asked me about things on my resume, mostly. Was asked to come back for second-round "super day." Each interviewee was assigned their own E&Y associate to guide them to their 2 interviews. First interview of the day was much like the on-campus one. About half an hour long. Then the 2nd interview involved more behavioral questions. After that, the company takes you out to a nice lunch, which was the best part of the day : )
