Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in December 2009.

Interview

My friend helped to submit my resume, and then received a phone call from HR lady. Conversation went
well, and then she scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager after 1 week. I handled the conversation from Paris where I traveling and then he told to prepare for onsite interview.
Onsite interview planning took EY a bit time with several tries, and after 1 month, I finally made my trip to NYC.
Interview is conversation type. I met 4 people in 2 hours and it's over. They asked me questions about resume, my past projects, and how I interacted with my customers. People are smart, good at what they are doing and they are very friendly. No interviewers tried to grill me.

Negotiation

The offer is fair and within my expectation. I tried to asked a bit more, and HR told me it's really the best he could manage. Nothing more to say, I accepted it.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Fairly standard for the Big 4; initial screening over the phone, passed off to the area recruiter for another phone screening, had a 30-minute phone interview with a Senior Manager in my practice, was then selected to fly up to 5 Times Square (New York) for on-site final interviews which consisted of Partner, Senior Manager, and Manager interviews, plus a detailed discussion with the recruiter. Generally behavioral though some focus on technical competency.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate, considered the offered salary/benefits package to be fair and at-market.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Initially, I was pre screened at a job fair as a younger advisory employee directed me to have a 15 mins interview with a VP who was also at the job fair. A week later I talked with an HR phone interviewer who wanted to collect salary and location expectations and preferences. After another phone interview was an on site interview where I met with 5 VPs. Not many probing questions were asked.

    Advisory Senior Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The whole process took five months and was interrupted by long periods of silence. The recruiter was overstretched in his role and had too many other candidates to service so his attention on me felt very limited. The technical phone interview was the first stage, and it was a rushed 30-minute phone call with a partner. She seemed rushed and asked superficial questions, and this passed me on to the next stage. Next was an in-person interview with 3 people. I got an offer after the in-person interview. Those doing the interviews were not very experienced.

    Interview Questions

    • None. The questions were not difficult and there was no case interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate because the offer was higher than at other firms.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I originally bounced around from recruiter to recruiter within the firm to finally come to the advisory practice that i was most interested in. Everyone I spoke to was kind and very receptive. Eventually I was called into an interview with a manager, senior manager, and Partner. I clicked with each individual team member. Within 3 days I received a call extending an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were soft skills. Name the most difficult area that you tested and how you handled it from beginning to end.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Always negotiate. Look at the benefits package and the salary. Get data from sites and most importantly your network from other big 4.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process is selective and in the beginning is very behavioral in nature. It is important to be knowledgeable about the company and have a genuine interest in EY with specific reasoning as to why it is attractive compared to other similar opportunities. Also, it always helps to have someone on the inside who is well respected that you can reference in an interview as vouching for your work ethic and character. Get your CV in using a current employee as a recommendation and greatly boost your chances at landing an interview. Ask whoever recommends you to invite you out to meet some others so you can gather more information and have additional names to drop of people you reached out to to learn more about the firm.

    Interview Questions

    • What is consulting? (If applying for Advisory make sure you have a grasp as to what a work day actually entails and not the glamorized "House of Lies" lifestyle)   Answer Question
