    Advisory Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I reached out to a recruiting manager and partner about my interest. Received a digital interview within 2 weeks. The conversations were very encouraging and I enjoyed getting to know them, and the interview itself went well in my mind. After the digital interview, however, I never received any word whatsoever - the only email I got was an automated message asking for feedback on how to improve their digital experience. I'm assuming this meant I was rejected, but human confirmation would have been more appropriate.

    Tax Associate Interview

    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.

    Two 30-minute interviews, everyone was nice and talked to you even if you weren't interviewing for their division. Getting there early to make small talk with other applicants will help calm nerves.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Detroit, MI) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus with two managers, mixer the night before to get to know the interviewers and ask past interns questions about their experience. Was offered an office visit, but canceled due to an offer from another firm that I liked much more. The recruiter was very nasty and threatening when I let them know I would not be attending the visit. I immediately knew I made the right decision by going with the other firm. The interviewers were fantastic and everyone else I met was friendly, I just really had a good feeling about my other offer.
