    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The whole interview took place in the heart of time square. Some staff took us out for lunch, which was pretty relaxing. The interview was actually pretty casual. The interviewers asked me some really common questions and I felt comfortable answering them. They notified me of the result in a pretty timely fashion.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at EY in October 2009.

    Interview

    It was a very detailed process. They treated me well, put me up in a hotel. It was not an easy interview, lots of technical questions, seems like they would work staff very hard but what do you expect from big 4. I decided to go with another firm after all was said and done.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2008.

    Interview

    The one on one interview itself was everything I had been told to expect. It consisted of a lot of questions of my personality and experiences I had in the past. Most of them focused on group work and wanted to see how well I worked with others. The interviewer also described the job role thoroughly and wanted to make sure I had fully understood what position they were interviewing me for.

    Overall it was a great interview and really what I had expected - personality and group experiences. Unfortunately I was not lucky enough to get an offer.
