    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied online through my school's website and was invited to a pre-interview dinner, where I talked to some tax associates and some partners. I had the interview the next day and my interviewer was someone I talked to the night before. My interviewer seemed more interested in my extracurriculars than school projects/works/volunteer experiences. The interview was very laid back and casual.

    Assurance Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus job posting and was contacted for an on-campus interview through the campus recruiting system. The interview lasted 30 minutes and was with a senior manager who was very friendly. He had some formal questions to ask, but the most of the interview just consisted of talking about my past experience.
    I got a call the next day informing me that I had been selected for a final-round interview. I received an email later that gave me two Superday dates to choose from, both during the next week. The final-round office visit lasted for approximately 5-6 hours. It consisted of a breakfast where I was seated with other applicants and first-year associates, a panel where several associates talked about their experience with the firm, two 30 minute interviews (one manager and one partner), and then we went out to lunch. These interviews were more structured and serious than the first round, but the interviewers were still very friendly and the conversations we had were very enjoyable. I received an offer by email later that day, which came from the partner I interviewed with. Got my official offer two days later.
