    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.

    FSO Advisory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn followed by a short 10 min phone conversation around what the role was. About 2-3 weeks later received an email checking my availability for a particular date. Once we reached a mutually agreeable date, was scheduled to fly down to New York for interviews. Interview day was pretty casual. They made me feel comfortable and it was more conversational rather than a what you might typically expect out of an interview, mostly around my resume with a few product based experience related questions. A total of 5 interviews with 2 managers, a senior manager, an executive director, and a partner. I was made to sit in one room and the interviewers took turns to come in on a scheduled basis. Was contacted a week later and told that I will be extended an offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    One phone interview, one in person interview. All a formality and none of it was consistent, structured or necessarily meaningful. Each person (who I now work with) just made up questions on their own and some didn't even apply to my actual job now.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at EY (Williamsburg, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first formal internship interview that I did, and I'm very glad that I did it with EY. They contacted me very soon after the deadline for submitting applications passed, and I was scheduled to do an online interview. The online interview consisted of 5 behavioural questions, and we get 10 tries for each question. I got past that and went to the final interview, which consisted of a case interview and a behavioural interview. I really enjoyed the interview process as I felt that the interviewers were very interested in getting to know me, and it was a really good learning experience.
