    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Budapest (Hungary)).

    I was referred and got a mail from HR to complete a logical, reasoning, numbering test. A few days later got an invitation to AC, there were some standard tasks again like repetition of the before said test, monotonity test, group exercise, English test, accounting test. Few days later phone rang again and got an invitation for partner interview, that is usually 30-45 minutes with focusing on motivation and engagement to join a highly demanding and stressful environment. Giving the right answers will result in an offer within the next days.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Singapore (Singapore)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call for interview 3-4 weeks after applying for TURF. They allow you to change the interview timing with them if you cannot make it for the allocated slot and will send you a confirmation email after that. The interview process was quite simple but it was rather long. Somehow they changed their style a little and included a written test component BEFORE the interview. They give you 15 mins for the written test and will call u up for the interview AFTER the written test. I was interviewed by 2 managers but I had friends where Partners were involved as well. 2 interviewers and 4 interviewees. The HR will advise you not to be competitive during the interview and help each other out during the interview. Took about 1.5 hours for the entire process.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions are quite normal, such as "tell me about yourself", "why audit? why EY?", "what are your strengths and weaknesses?", "tell me about a low point in your life and how you manage to learn from it and turn it into a strength", " tell us how we can build a better working world". Entire interview process was rather long. There was a written test component as well. The question I got was " How can an audit professional help build a better working world?". My friend had a different written question though, his was "what does great leadership look like?" hahah apparently it changes daily and here are two for you to think about.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (Singapore (Singapore)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through TURF, and was contacted via phone call around one month later. The next stage was the group interview. Mostly behavioural questions were asked, but it varies for different interviewers. The interview was quite relaxed, and the interviewer's main purpose was to understand the applicants, rather than to grill each of us with difficult questions. Offer was made 2 hours later via phone call.
