Average Interview

Interview

Interview process was similar to other companies in the industry. 1st round was on-campus interview and then they invited students for in-house interview. I interviewed with two--one partner and one manager. Both asked mostly behavioral questions but they asked details of some experiences. Interview length was about 30mins for each.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I got the interview through campus recruiting. I had the dinner with the interviewer and other applicants the night before interview. The seats were assigned already. It was just casual talk, and there was one employee from E&Y for each table. Not much to prepare for. In the second day, the interviewer, a partner from E&Y, asked most questions about the resume and a couple questions about the behaviors. The behavior question were important. I think I did not get into the second round because of them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Came from a heavily recruited school; the interviewer didn't ask any tough/technical questions. Basically all they wanted to know is if you had a 3.3+ and were personable.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Applied through school's job posting site. Then attended career fair 2 weeks later and met 1 senior associate and 2 managers. Was invited for an on campus interview a few weeks later. There was a pre interview dinner with associates and managers the night before--it was very laid back. On campus interview was about 30-45 minutes with a manager (she was at career fair and the dinner). It was all behaviors based questions related to group work. Got a phone call 1-2 weeks later saying I was invited for an office interview/visit. They put us in a hotel and had a dinner the night before the interview. The dinner was very laid back and at a partners house. The office visit started at 8:30am with breakfast and an introduction from the recruiters and a partner. Then there was a panel of 3 associates that answered questions. This was then followed by an interview with a manager, a senior manager, and a partner. All were conversational and just one behavioral question. They were each about 30 mins. Finally we were taken out to lunch and then brought back for a farewell with 2 partners that discussed EY.
