    Financial Advisory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Submit an application online, HR phone screened within a week, didn't hear anything from her for a week, I sent her a follow up email, no response, tried another follow up email in week 2 after initial phone, she responded and scheduled a phone screen with inline manager, another week later, she told me that manager is on 2 week vacation, waited for 2 weeks, I was told on that phone interview day that manager is not available, but she got me another manager to talk at the same time.
    That conversation went well, but I didn't hear anything from HR for almost 2 weeks, sent another follow up email, HR told me to prepare to fly to NY office for on site (super Friday). 3 days before super Friday, she told me interviewers couldn't make it and moved me to the following Friday.

     I fly to NY the night before after work around 7PM, flight was delayed and didn't take off until past 10PM, it happened that HR said me an email at 9:40PM that night before interview to notify me some schedule change and also notify me that 2 of 3 interviewers couldn't meet me on site. I was really tired as I arrived at the hotel around 1AM so I didn't even read that email.
    So I was in their NYC office way much earlier than my
    scheduled time, only realized about the last minute change.

    Anyway, my greeter took me up regardless and dozing off in their office for sometimes before finally meeting with the only person, who happened to be the peer of the position. Then supposed to talk to 2 person over the phone and I cannot believe EY office phone is NOT working!!!!! (My interviewer helped me dial multiple times and he gave up on helpless phone) So I have to use my cell phone but reception was really bad in the super densed area like Time Square office :-(

    After on site, again never hear anything from HR, send a follow up email, HR said don't know about the result, then never heard back on my 2nd follow up email.

    I submit the expenses for reimbursement, and I was told i should get a prepaid Visa card within 18-21 business days, well, still waiting for that....

    The whole interview process is just so messy, and it lasts 9+ weeks, and yet I still haven't get any results... I get it that consultant's world are less predictable and you have to be more flexible, but I don't think this justified their messy process, I don't feel being respected of my time during the process. And also, it makes me wonder that if EY's administration is in such a messy manner, why would Company paid hefty $$$ to hire their services??!! I am so disappointed!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied on my school's career website and ended up making it to the first round of interviews. The first round consisted of a series of questions you must answer while recording yourself, I believe there were 5 questions and you had multiple attempts at each question. In my opinion, this is an awful way to see if a candidate is qualified for the position or if they fit the company's culture. I found out a few days later that I made the next round which was an on campus interview. I met with 2 tax employees and they asked about my classes and some behavioral questions. This ultimately was the last round of interviews . It took HR two and a half weeks to get back to me about whether I would receive an offer or not and received an automated email.

    Interview

    Around an hour for the first round interview. Started with general questions about me and my background in school, then dove into asking questions about my resume and experience. Was hard to tell if it went well or not since it flowed like a casual conversation dotted with a few prompts.
