Business Advisor Program - Advisory Staff Interview

Business Advisor Program - Advisory Staff

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview initially with a member of HR that went really well. She was really friendly and just asked me to go through my resume then asked me a few behavioral questions, such as describe a time when you had to work in a team and had to work with a difficult person. How did you handle it? I was then asked to complete a 45-minute timed writing sample via website link. She told me if that went well I would be offered to come for an in-office interview, which I was. I met with a senior member of the department I was interviewing for and someone from recruitment at the New York office. I was told to bring a copy of my transcript with me, which I offered to both people I interviewed with but they both said they didn't need it. I was told that I would hear from HR within a week the outcome. It is now weeks later and I still haven't heard back. I find this extremely inconsiderate and rude. It has given me a very bad impression of the company.

Interview Question – The case study really wasn't very difficult. I wish I'd taken their advice they gave on their website to take a few moments to plan my answers to the questions they ask. The nerves got the best of me and I answered each one immediately. I think I could've given better answers had I thought about my answers more.   Answer Question
