    They focus on the basic knowledge of the candidate regarding the accounting and finance area. Since they are an audit company, they simply try to hit on your capability regarding the auditing domain. Commerce graduates will get an edge for such interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY in December 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process was through campus placements. There were 5 rounds in total - aptitude test, HR interview, GD, technical interviews and managerial interview. EY was the slowest companies I've faced in terms of declaring results in each round and also declaring the result of the final round. The whole process started in December and was concluded in March.

    The aptitude test was fairly challenging and innovative as well. The HR round was simple and straight forward, the interviewer was friendly and all questions asked were general in nature.
    GD was normal and judged by a panel of 3 present in the room.
    Technical round was again challenging and they grilled all the candidates with a barrage of accounting and financial questions.
    The interviewer in the managerial round seemed clueless about the process, displayed poor body language and was evidently disinterested in the company, the interview and seemingly everything else.

    The results from EY take a painfully long time to come out because of which they lose many good candidates to other companies. They take all candidates for granted.

    All in all the process was not even close to some other companies' hiring process in terms of approachability, fairness, and respect for candidates time. Personal recommendation would be to expect EY to take time in everything they do and always have back up plans.

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

    Interview

    It's been more than a week since the first and second part of the process, the aptitude test and the HR interview. EY does take its time. But the process seems very well thought out, simple and straight forward. The aptitude test was not too hard/ not too easy either. The HR round is very simple if you can just be yourself.
