    Interview

    I applied for Japanese Business Services to Boston Career Forum website. A senior called me and we had an informal, informational interview (she wanted to check my Japanese ability). I interviewed with a manager and HR at the career forum, had dinner with the audit team members, then got invited to office interview in Chicago 2 weeks later. Interviewed with a manager, a senior manager, and a partner at the office (all in English). Great experience knowing everybody (not just the JBS members) at the office I'll be working at.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Chicago in November, 2016. Applied through university/school and got selected for 30 mins phone interview. Phone interview was very relaxed and basic questions like why EY, why tax, resume, strengths, weaknesses. Interviewer was impressed and told me that he would recommend me for next level.
    Next was Super Day in November at EY. Two 30 minutes interview with managers - very relaxed, general chat, same basic questions. They don't expect college graduate to know technical things. They just want to know you as a person.
    Got Offer after 7-10 days of interview. Some of my friends got offer within 1-3 days of interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had a first round of interview which was pretty basic and simple. Second round was a Superday in Chicago. They flew us in and paid for everything where we stayed at a hotel and had breakfast with the staff the next day. Followed by 2 rounds interview and a group discussion. Waiting to hear from then within a week. Even if I don't get this, it was a really great experience. For some reason, EY people are super friendly and laid back and that's just unbeatable.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too technical. Know VBA and SQL. At least to a basic level. This is not just tax work but tax and IT combined.   Answer Question
