    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process was extremely pleasant. I first had a phone screening and less than a week later was brought in for a group interview at the office. Everyone was extremely genuine and really took the time to try and get to know me. Interviewed with a Senior Manager and a Manager; both interviews were extremely conversational and barely addressed my resume. Overall it was a great experience and I was offered a position the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you were a part of a team and one member wasn't pulling their weight; how did you address the situation and solve the problem?   Answer Question

    Interview

    The night before we were taken to a very nice dinner where we had the opportunity to network and ask questions of current staff members at all levels. The next day we went through two different interviews, a panel interview, and then lunch with the current assurance staff members. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming throughout the entire process and was very willing to answer any and all questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Most of the interview process took place on campus, with several informationals and mixers in-town. I had one on campus interview followed by an office visit. Very relaxed environment for both interviews, with no technical questions of any sort being asked. They were strictly "get to know you" conversations to see if I was a good fit or not.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really stuck out to me. Just the typical "walk me through your resume" and other behavioral questions. Just be yourself and you'll be fine.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I began the interview process for EY on campus at my university. I went through two rounds of interviews. The first involved only one interviewer and a basic writing sample exercise and was performed on campus. The second round involved an office visit to the EY Dallas campus and was made up of three to four interviews with EY employees of differing rank. Each interviewer focused on a particular theme of questions - One interviewer might probe more of your technical abilities while the next was more focused on work style or company fit.

    Overall, company fit was key to success in the interview process through my experience with EY. The team I became part of often works in very large teams, making fit a crucial metric for assessment by the interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked many questions about working style and organizational skills. The interviewers also probed into fair depth about technical knowledge and where certain technical strengths lie for each individual.   Answer Question
