    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    First was a simple submission of Resume and Transcript. Second was a 30 minute telephone interview with basic behavioral questions. Walk through the resume (Tell me about yourself) and more questions as felt out by the interviewer. Largely conversational, interviewer gets a feel for you and decides which direction to take questions. Somewhat Unstructured. Last was a Super day. The Super day consisted of 2 Behavioral interviews and one Case. Case was a long packet with 15 minutes to read and decide on approaches. 20-25 minutes to then discuss the case with the interviewer.

    I applied through college/university recruiting. First round interview was a 30 minute on-campus interview. It was very relaxed and conversational. I also had to complete an online writing sample. A week later, I received an invitation to second round interviews at the New York office. Second round interviews included 1 case interview and 2 behavioral interviews. The behavioral interviews were very conversational and I enjoyed getting to know my interviewers. I received a call from the recruiter 2 weeks later with an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very thorough. I had my first interview on campus which was an alumni of my University. The next step was choosing an interview time on the EY Super day. This super day consisted of two interviews, a tour and lunch with the associates that brought me on the tour. As we explored the building we also were led to our interviews. It was a smooth process and was very pleasant. In the morning we were led into a room with other interviewees and were able to meet a partner that spoke to us about the life in a big four accounting firm. She let us ask any questions and we then went on the tours.

    The hiring and interview process were very good experiences if you are going through university recruiting. The interviews were very conversational and there was one case study that was essentially a conversation about a scenario you read on a paper a few mins before. I ended up with an offer for a summer internship in the New York office.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two rounds. First, I applied through their website and my on campus career services. Then, I was selected for a first round interview on campus, where I was asked behavioral questions and about my resume. Then, I flew into the NY Office (The city where I was going to intern at), and had two rounds: a behavioral, and a technical interview (because my major wasn't accounting/ finance and I was applying for the advisory rotation for Launch). Then, I passed both interviews, and was emailed an offer.
