    Easy Interview

    Application

    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

    Interview

    My interview process took place over two rounds. The first round took place on campus. Second round was super day. Super day consisted of a behavioral interview, panel interview, and case study. The behavioral questions were basically the same as the first interview. The case study is looking for you to identify risks.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Got referred by a EY employee. The recruiter emailed me very soon, and scheduled a phone interview in 3 days.
    The phone interview was basically questions about my experience and some behavioral based questions
    After the interview, I didn't hear back from the recruiter. One week later I sent a follow up email, and got rejected.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Mid september the director of my program sent out an email alerting us to a few job offers EY had for MIS students. I finished my application around Sept. 20th. Later that week I got an email back saying I had an on campus interview the following week.

    I found the on campus interview to be rather unorganized. First they put you in a room with some Staff from the local office then take you in to do a behavioral (resume walk through) interview with a manager through the local office. "Tell me about a time you were a leader" "What is your experience with tech, Excel, Access etc". I thought I did pretty bad as me and the interviewer didn't really hit it off she was pretty bland but the questions we're easy exactly what I expected.

    Three weeks later I heard back that I had an Office Visit interview for mid november in NYC (my first choice office as indicated in first interview). They fly you in if you're far enough, put you up in a hotel the whole nine yards. Definitely take the hotel even if you're not too far so you can feel relaxed going in the day of and not worrying about traffic.

    9:30 you meet in the office, Recruiters give you and other dozen or so candidates a brag slide show about how great EY, standard rankings and stuff. Then they match you up with a 'Greeter' who escorts you to your interviews for that day. Whole day felt super rushed, interviews back to back to back. My first was with a Manager, then Senior Manager and finally a case with a Partner. First two interviews we're pretty behavioral, only asked one or two questions actually and my answers turned into a conversation. Partner interview with a case was pretty intimidating but they are looking for your thought process not an answer. Case was NOT like a consulting case for MBB, I studied some frameworks but did not use them, it is a written case.

    Got the call with an offer the Monday following my Friday interview.

    • 20 minutes to read the case and analyze it. Case was about 6 pages long, a lot to look over in a short period of time.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with an HR representative asking very basic information regarding previous jobs, salary expectations, current salary, etc. Week later phone interview with a Manager. It was in-depth conversation with some behavioral questions and some technical questions. They want to get a sense of whether or not you like this particular field and whether or not you would fit in their team. One day later HR rep scheduled a superday at the NY office. 6 1:1 interviews with managers, directors, and staff. Standard behavioral questions, but they really dug deep on technical questions. I couldn't answer most of the technical stuff because my knowledge and expertise is simply not up to their level, but they just want to see how you react to these types of situations. They are looking for enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Two weeks later I get a phone call from the hiring manager explaining that they liked me a lot and the feedback was very positive and they continued the job offer process for about two more weeks of filling out paperwork and various forms. About four weeks after I interviewed at the superday they email me the offer letter.

    I went over and beyond with interview preparation and research. I honestly do not think I would have gotten this far without going at least 110%.

    Interview Questions

    • What exactly do you do at your current job? It appears you do little to no analysis with the model.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate, but I assume the more experience you have the better your chances are, but EY is a very structured company so salaries at each level have minimums and maximums, so be prepared and you should expect what you deserve.
