    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through school career center and EY website. Interview was 30 minutes long with a senior manager. Very conversational and behavioral based questions. Overall the process was very easy to understand and my recruiter quickly answered any questions I had. Would definitely recommend attending the pre social so you can get to know your interviewer beforehand.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (Hyderabad (India)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    A written test followed by a hr and two technical rounds followed by a partner round. The written test was based on general knowledge and related stuff. The HR round was pretty easy as the HR manager asked question regarding your interests etc. The gruelling one was of course the Technical round where queries related to accounting standards were put. Partner round appeared to be more of a formality where the partner was briefly interested in knowing who you were.

    Interview Questions

    • In the technical round they, did ask a lot of questions regarding accounting standards and its application since I was opting for a role in the audit department.   1 Answer

    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    - 1st online test: situational choices
    - 2st online test: general ability test (verbal reasoning, inductive reasoning etc.)
    - direct invitation for AC by a call

    Group activity:
    - 1 discussion question
    - 1 problem-solving question. The solution needed to be presented.
    2 vs 1 interview:
    - general questions (very short)
    - 6 behavioural questions

    I guess I screwed the behavioural questions. The questions were very specific and I found hard to adapt my prepared examples in answering those questions. And English is not my native language.
