    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Interview process took about two weeks (final round was yesterday still awaiting decision). Started with a phone screening with a recruiter essentially asking about my experience and what interests me about EY. Told me about the position and benefits. Got an email the next day saying the team wanted to speak with me. Next step was a video conversation with a manager on the team. He asked me questions about my experience, project management exp, etc. and then a few behavioral questions (tell me about a time when...). The following Monday I was contacted to schedule a “Superday” the following Friday. The day consisted of an office tour with a new consultant and then 3 interviews. Interview one was the typical case study (“analytical interview”) which was a standard profitability case. The next was a behavioral interview where they give you a situation as a consultant and ask how you’d handle it. The third was a conversational interview with the partner. Overall very good experience with them.

    Tax Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Behavioral questions very important. Typically at this early in your tax career, accounting firms will focus mostly on behavioral questions rather than technical ones. If you have a good grasp of how to answer open ended questions focused on leadership and teamwork, that would suffice.
