    Associate Quality Assurance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    I was connected to this opportunity through an office campus. After I was referred to the recruiter, I had an initial phone screening and was given the opportunity to pursue two different positions. After being persuaded by the recruiter to move forward with the QA analyst, I interviewed at the Jacksonville Office. The interview lasted about 2 hours and included a presentation and 3 separate interviews, including a case study. After the interview process I got generally positive feedback and was told it could take up to 2 weeks to hear a decision. After 2 weeks passed, I was told that decisions were taking longer than expected since some partners had been traveling. Finally after 2 and a half weeks, I received a call from the recruiter saying that after re-evaluating the needs of the company, hiring was going to be put on hold indefinitely. It was a very negative experience since I had the opportunity to pursue a different path (that was hiring), but was convinced to move forward for a position that never existed. Would not recommend.
