    Submitted resume through Indeed.com, but took 2 months to hear anything. Once initiated, went through 2 phone interviews based entirely on fit, followed by 2 in-office interviews. None of the questions were particularly challenging, but looked to match my experiences with the job at hand. Met one Manager, a Senior Manager, and two Partners.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Employer Presentation at the school wasn't very helpful for showcasing Transaction Services. As a CPA, I had a vision of TS however the position I interviewed for was more IT integration than due diligence and valuation. I was kind of caught off guard because the presentation showed TS as I know it but then the positions offered in the interviews were more IT integration and management consulting based.

    Interview Questions
    • Discuss some of your experiences with integrations in your past work life.   View Answer
    • E&Y gives you a past integration that they performed and you have to be able to walk through how you would conduct the integration. Very interesting since the senior managers and partners will be doing this in reality but you get the opportunity to "interview up".   Answer Question

    Transaction Advisory Services Senior Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at EY in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Great process - everyone I spoke with was great; there is a reason EnY is #1 in the marketplace is client service. The process was - initial recruiter (talent acquisition), TS recruiter, in-house interview. There were 2 phone interviews, and the in-house interview consisted of 3 partners and 1 senior manager in the group. The partners were incredibly lax, asked about you, and it was similar to my previous interview with a big 4 in that, after you get through the recruiters and they read over your resume, they pretty much have an idea of how smart you are, they just want to see if they can work with you. That was the case here. No killer questions from everyone, just questions about who you are and what you want to do. The senior manager asked some intense, detailed questions about my past, however, they were on-point and I was able to answer them. The culture at the company is great, people are dressed professionally, and it's similar to other professional service environments. The #1 thing you can do for this interview is be yourself, and ensure you can speak about everything on your resume. Also, be likeable.

    Cons:
    Compared to other big 4 and quick interviews, the process lagged. I had to wait awhile to hear back from people on multiple instances.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They generally have a set offer and there is minimal negotiation/wiggle room; the only area you can negotiate is in the bonus / relocation area.
