    Risk Advisory Services Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for an IT Risk Advisory position within FSO. I applied through my university's job portal and was shortly contacted about scheduling phone interviews--two back-to-back phone behavioral interviews asking about my background/experience based on my resume. I was then flown in for an in-person interview: a (fairly laid back) case interview with a senior manager and behavioral/culture and job-fit type interview with a partner. Overall great experience and nothing to stress over too much. Definitely worth brushing up on IT risk concepts for the case.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone: What sources do you use to stay up-to-date on world news?
      Case: SWOT analysis, key issues the company was facing, potential risks of solution I proposed

    Behavioral questions, really just want to get to know you, very relaxed and friendly. They also give you time to ask your own questions. Nothing to stress too much about, but you do want to prepare to feel your best.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First round interview on campus, very easy, walk me trough your resume + a few behavioral questions. There was also an online writing assessment.
    Second round was a megaday at their NYC office. Two half hour interviews that were behavioral with a few technical questions. Nothing too hard. Third interview was a case study - basically reading a 2 page story with no data and resolving the case pretending you are a EY consultant and the interviewer is the client.
