    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First online test. Then a personal interview with HR, Director and Partner. HR asked mainly about the CV and personal motivation. The director asked a lot of questions about the working field and asked me to do some calculation and interpret the result. In total it was a nice and direct interview. Yet questions can be tough even if you are well prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • Why consulting? Why not apply for a position, where you did the internship?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Consultant for Cyber Security Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Munich, Bayern (Germany)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward. First I handed in a CV and a Cover Letter.
    After that I had to do a numerical and a logic test. After passing both stages I was invited to a telephone interview with a manger. This was mostly about the CV and my intentions of becoming a consultant. In addition to this the manager told me about the job role, the activities and what to expect from the job. After passing the telephone interview I was invited to the office in Munich.
    The interview was with 2 people, one from HR and the other was a manger. It was a similar process to the telephone interview. A lot of questions about my CV, my strengths and my interests.
    The offer came about 5 days later.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    interview was split up in 2 parts, group assessment & individual. group assessment explores your communication and conflict management skills. Individual interview is more about EY getting a better understanding of you and your motivation. I highly recommend you dot down some relevant personal examples that demonstrate leadership, work ethics, conflict resolution.

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eschborn (Germany)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at EY (Eschborn (Germany)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a headhunter. It was all set up via mail and phone calls and took less than two weeks from the official application til the actual interview at the office. During the interview I talked to a Partner and a lady from HR about the job description and general questions I had about the job role. The next part of the interview included a business case with two Senior Managers about an Integration into a portfolio. Concluded was this with a final talk to the Partner and lady from HR to tell me about their decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were about a business case (30 mins) that involved the integration of a potential carve-out into an existing portfolio. No typical interview questions were asked.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate a higher pay due to the salary framework that is based on work experience. My suggestion is to closely look at the relevant experience. Sometimes skipping ranks will not benefit the employee and I would therefore suggest to hear what HR offers and then go back and debate whether you would like to negotiate.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's online career services center. I believe all applicants have to go through this or a campus recruiter to apply.
