    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    The interview was separated into three different "mini" interviews, all performed in one day. Simple character questions, scenarios, and just small talk was about all that I had to do.

    There is a case study, and you need to prepare for it, because I didnt, and from an inside source that I know, is why I came in second and did not get the offer.

    Great people.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    One interview on campus and following that several interviews held in the office. These are typically with managers and up. Most staff positions are taken up by interns, but are still available. As an interviewer now, I can say it is very typical that once candidates are in the office, the largest driver is to understand personality and if they would fit with the team. Less of a concern around technical abilities at that time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    First round was a phone screening with HR that was mostly going into my background and matching up the position my skillset. Second round was a phone call set up with a manager in the practice. This was both behavioral and technical as the manager dug into my resume and asked pertinent questions. I was also presented a situational case which was more technical and in the end went through to the final round which was a super day. The super day was with an interviewer at each level and its mostly behavioral. In the end, I didn't get an offer as they wanted more experienced candidates. Everyone was super friendly and very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY in November 2015.

    Interview

    I initially met some members of the Roseville office at a career fair and applied online later that weekend. About a week later they scheduled an interview on campus which lasted about 30 minutes. That first round was primarily behavioral-based questions. A few days later they invited me to the final interview held at their office.

    The final interview was not as bad as I anticipated it might be. Each candidate was assigned a staff member to usher him or her around the office. We had breakfast in the conference room and had a chance to get to know every one. I had two interview, one with a partner and senior manager. The partner and I had a sort of behavioral interview, but it was really just conversational. I think the only typical interview question was "Why EY?"

    The senior manager worked me through a case study. Unfortunately we got behind in schedule and I wasn't given enough time as the case was designed for. Basically I just read through the company and discussed the problems that I thought should be prioritized and sort the root causes from the symptoms. It was very conversational and absolutely okay to ask questions. Afterwards we had an info session about the company, benefits, culture and direction the company is moving. The interview ended with lunch out at a nearby restaurant. A few days later I was required to submit a business writing sample. They gave me a scenario about a friend asking for advice and what advice I would give her.

    From beginning to end, I loved the everyone I met at the firm and it was a great process. Really excited to join the team in the fall.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Friendly interviewers with very common questions, not too technical, expect a very simple case study, nothing to worry about...Basically be ready for the most common interview questions, you will likely already be prepared, also be ready to talk about the role that you are applying to...at least on a very basic level
