Audit Staff Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

Interview

I gave my resume to a former employee who then gave my resume to a recruiter. I had a phone interview followed by an office visit two weeks later. The phone interview was more difficult than the office visit. The office visit was purely conversational. I had to ask a lot of questions which was not a problem. I had prepared a lot of questions, but a lot questions came to mind as the conversation flowed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (San Diego, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting. First round interviews were on-campus and consisted of two 30 minute interviews from partners. Very conversational, no technical questions at all. Second round interviews was about 4 hours in-office. It was a group of about 10 people, half were seeking internships and half were seeking full-time positions; we were all doing audit. There was a presentation about EY, then we got into teams and played an EY/accounting trivia game. Then there was one 30 minute interview with a partner, an office tour, and then lunch with two associates. It was all very conversational, everyone was very friendly, and the time went by fast. I heard back the next day. Only negative experience was that they didn't reimburse my gas (I drove over 600 miles round-trip to attend).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was a senior manager. She asked a few behavioral questions which were very typical, e.g. tell me about yourself, team experiences. The topic of team experiences was probably the bulk of our interview. In all, the interview was very conversational, and really wanted to get to know you as a person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process involved several questions related to my background to find out more information. The questions seemed behavioral based. The interview was conducted via phone and was performed by a recruiter from the Indianapolis, Indiana office. The recruiter was also present at the university career fair. She initially contacted me via email to determine a good time to set up a phone interview. The interview was scheduled the following week and seemed like a typical interview. Various questions were asked to determine whether there was a fit within the culture of the organization and whether I would seem like a good candidate to help further the organizational mission.
