IT Audit Staff Interview

Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in March 2012.

Interview

I was a college campus hire and I was interviewed on campus for the first round. The night before we had a meet and greet a local place and I got to meet all the recruiters and interviewers. So basically I already knew my interviewer. The first round was just some basic behavioral questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Interview went smoothly as I already knew the interviewer prior to it.

They accepted me and I was brought in for a 2nd round interview at the local office I wanted to work at. It consisted of 3 interviews. 1 was a case interview and the others were very laid back more behavioral interviews. Basically they just want to know if you are able to hold a conversation because when you are on the job you meet with a lot of clients.

The case interview consisted of a me reading a case and pointing of the issues I saw in the IT environment. The interviewer would ask very basic questions just to get a feel for my thought process. Nothing extreme.

Interview Questions

  • The business case was the most difficult part of the interview process as they gave you a limited amount of time to study the case. Some of the questions were very broad and sometimes hard to answer. But the whole point of it was to just get a feel of your thought process.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at EY in October 2008.

    Interview

    Very quick and smooth process. All the staff were very polite and made me feel at ease. My advice would be to know exactly what you want out of your career and be prepard to articulate that.
    The phone interview was short consisting of only a few questions about my background and interest the role.
    The face to face interview was challening because of the level of technical knowledge they expected of me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was okay. The managers are good but the HR person was extremely unprofessional. After interview, no communication whatsoever. When I requesting feedback from the HR person, she just send me an email that they have found someone else more closely fit their qualifications while the same posting is re-posted again. Personally I will never deal with this company ever again.
