Advisory Senior Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

Interview

I was initially contacted by one of their recruiters on LinkedIn. We scheduled a call and talked for about an hour. Her questions focused on my background, experience, and career goals.

About a week after the phone screen, they invited me to NYC for an in-person interview. This interview consisted of eight half-hour sessions with different managers. About 80% of their questions focused on my experience. They asked me to describe in detail various projects I had worked on and code that I had written. The other 20% was softball technical questions focusing on the differences between different reporting tools.

The entire process, from first contact to offer, took about three weeks.

    . Second round was with Senior manager, behavioral and situational questions. Asked to explain basics of audit, in layman terms; so that the freshers could understand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was brought in by a recruiter and met with two Partners, two senior managers and a senior. The process was comprehensive, but did take quite a bit of time to go through. The interviewers were professional and the experience was great. The questions were well thought out and it was not a fluff interview. Definitely come prepared.
