    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Applied online through my University, and then received an email from a regional recruiter to set up an in person interview. Shortly after the first interview I heard back from my recruiter to set up another in person interview onsite.

    The onsite interview included meeting with a small amount of other applicants, viewing the location, and a set of 3 interviews. The interviews consisted of 2 behavioral interviews and 1 case study. Basic preparation and a well thought out process will be very helpful.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Phone Screening with a HR Recruiter followed by three phone calls with professionals in industry. Received confirmation for a fourth phone interview which was then missed with no outreach and followed up with a phone call at 5:30 PM on a Friday that an offer had been made to another candidate. HR Rep also asked what three individuals I had interviewed with and then told me they had not received feedback from one. Whole process was fairly frustrating and the experience reflected fairly negatively on a firm that purports its people are most valued.
