    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Nashville, TN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I got an initial phone interview through a connection with the firm. I made it to the next round, which was an office visit. It was very laid back. Just me and another candidate were interviewing. We had dinner the night before with the recruiter and two first year staff. I had two 45 minute interviews with a Partner and a Senior Manager the next day and a 45 minutes "huddle" with 2 first year staff - the "huddle" is where you get all those questions answered that you wouldn't ask the recruiter or a partner. The day concluded with lunch and was very laid back. I received an e-mail saying I did not receive an offer 4 days later. Overall, it was a positive experience. However, it would be nice to have some feedback, as I felt confident about my interactions with the staff and my interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (San Jose, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    It was phone interview. I believe I was on speakerphone because of his voice from the distance and awkward silence here and there.

    All questions were behavioral questions.

    It lasted 45 minutes.

    There is a chance to ask them questions in the end.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (Boston, MA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Casual back-and-forth interview, a few behavioral questions but not terribly difficult ones. A brief review of the resume, but it is really more up to you to bring up your experience. The night before the interview the firm holds a meet-and-greet night, so you have the opportunity to speak with the interviewer, other people at the firm, previous interns and other hopefuls.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    This was an on campus interview. I was prepared for most of the questions, but the last question, I didn't anticipate. You have to be perfect for this company. If you answer a question that is not the perfect answer that they want to hear, you're screwed. It's totally unfair for them to expect you to have the perfect answer to a question you didn't anticipate. You lose the job even though you know you're fully qualified.
