    Interview Details

    Online Application - standard questions, mostly concentrated on providing examples of when you had shown good leadership skills and what more you could do to improve them

    Online Testing - Numerical, Logical, Situtational Judgement, - standard and relatively easy

    Once pass these stages was then invited to complete a telephone interview

    Telephone Interviewer was very friendly and tries to put you at ease, unfortunately I don't think I prepared enough in advance. Again questions mostly focused on providing more detailed examples of leadership / teamwork skills and also general commercial awareness

    Audit/Assurance: Government and Public Sector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at EY in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First one to one interview- The interviewer put me at ease explaining the process/how the interview would work. It is rather rigid due to the set questions they have to ask. Be prepared to demonstrate key skills (listening, team work etc), show your career motivations and answer question about why the service line you applied to. Heard back very quickly that had been successful.
    Assessment centre- involved group task, individual task, psychometric test and director interview. The group task was about understanding how people in the group communicated and worked in a team rather than getting your company/industry chosen. The individual task involved an email and business report- seriously time pressured but good experience in what doing in day to day job. Director interview was less rigid than the first face to face interview. Questions more challenging and personalised to the individual.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Online application, psychometric tests, this was situational first then numerical and verbal reasoning, I found EY took more days than the average company at getting back to you with results. I was invited to a face-to-face interview within a week of completing the test. The interview was competency based and really focused on past examples.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Applied late but managed to get through to AC after a competency based interview session. Group exercise and mock project were good. Good chance to get to know employees there. However, I was not particularly keen on Actuary and this showed in the Partner interview. However, I must say that EY were brilliant throughout the process - no negatives at all. Very professional and friendly. Would still apply again!
