    Audit Senior Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview started off with a 15 minute written test- a question / statement was given and was asked for your opinion.

    Interviewed with a senior manager for 45 minutes via Skype. It was pleasant as the interviewer was very nice and friendly.

    Some technical questions and audit testing procedures were asked- relating to the industry you opted for / experienced in the past.
    Apart from that, questions were mostly on the roles and responsibilities from your past experience.

    The HR personnel was very very helpful, attending to follow-up emails and providing regular status updates (unlike some firms with general and vague answers).

    Overall a very pleasant interview experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (Singapore (Singapore)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Fast, asked to share the experience. Have to be well prepared and share a lot of experience from the previous working firm. I think I have made the interviewer disappointed because the interview only takes 25 minutes. He does not want to waste his time with me.
