    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Two Interviews - 30 minute behavioral and 30 minute case. The behavioral interview was traditional, most of the questions were basic and personality/experience oriented. The case portion was relatively simple - identifying red flags in an organization that was described.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was well orchestrated and went quickly. All interviewers were well informed in other interview discussions and I really felt the love. While the hiring process at partnerships can take months, they did their best to expedite it. I met with 5 people in one day and they even took me to lunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain my resume, experiences. Why did I want to leave my current employer. And a lot of questions on "What can I answer for you?" " What questions do you have for me?"   Answer Question

    Emerging Leaders Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    It was an enjoyable process. Applied through the university website and was invited to submit an online interview which composed of answering 3 behavioral questions, but you're given three tries for each question. Was invited for an on-campus interview two weeks later where I met with a Manager for 30 minutes. It started with the typical "so tell me about yourself" question. Just make sure to prepare and have a set of answers for the top behavioral questions (simple search on Google will suffice) using the STAR method. The manager I interviewed with called me 6 days later offering me a spot at the ELP.

    Interview Questions

    • They stack several related behavioral questions together for the video interview so be ready

      Time you failed miserably and what did you do about it?

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interviews were all very conversational. Just be yourself and prepare for the basic questions. Also, just as a side tip for everyone, be at the interview at least 10 minutes early to just relax and get yourself into the right but calm mindset.

    Senior Sharepoint Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    A recruiter scheduled a phone interview with me for a Thursday at noon. I cleared my schedule and prepared for the interview, then awaited the call, which never came. I contacted the recruiter, and was told that she had mistakenly sent me the wrong date - the interview was actually scheduled for Friday.

    When the correct time arrived, the interviewer called me several minutes late, and acted hurried and impatient throughout the short interview. His English skills were extremely poor. As the interviewee, I wanted to make a good impression, and politely asked him to repeat a few unintelligible things he said. He seemed very offended by this, and sarcastically spelled out several words and asked "Do you understand THAT?" The interview experience was overshadowed by my attempts to comprehend the interviewer and his impatience and arrogance. I was not given an opportunity to discuss the position or my qualifications.
