    Risk Advisory Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    Initial interview was on campus, about a month later I was called back for an office visit and two rounds of interviews, plus an assessment "test" which centered on one's ability to look at a business problem, analytically break it down and offer solutions. I practiced for this by googling how one should break down and analyze business scenarios, and I did very well.

    Advisory Senior Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by one of their recruiters on LinkedIn. We scheduled a call and talked for about an hour. Her questions focused on my background, experience, and career goals.

    About a week after the phone screen, they invited me to NYC for an in-person interview. This interview consisted of eight half-hour sessions with different managers. About 80% of their questions focused on my experience. They asked me to describe in detail various projects I had worked on and code that I had written. The other 20% was softball technical questions focusing on the differences between different reporting tools.

    The entire process, from first contact to offer, took about three weeks.
