Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

Got a call, great people to talk to, excellent conversation. Good questions and gave supporting replies. They are Excited to hear what you have to say and very interested in your future plans. One of very few companies that really focuses on you rather than numbers. Core values of EY are the best. They encourage leadership and hard work. Dont stress when talking to them, really casual conversation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at EY in November 2011.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen interview with the recruiter for the position. He was supposed to call me directly and ended up contacting me 25 minutes later than the scheduled time. He apologized though. The phone interview was pretty short. It appeared that I talked the majority of the time asking questions to get a better idea of what would be expected in the position. I was familar with some of the responsibilities, however they seems really broad and thrown together. The recruiter couldn't clearly answer any of those questions either. He said that the manager for the position would be better suited to answer my questions. We also discussed salary, however that's also still up in the air. I asked for the range for the position but didn't get a clear answer. It's always a tug-of-war for that question.
