    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY in January 2015.

    Interview

    There are 2 rounds:

    The first round is mostly behavioral, analyzing your career interests and goals. Interviewers are very friendly, so are the recruiters.
    One case study follows in the second round which basically deals with reading a case and talking to the interviewer about it. Not an issue unless you get tunnel vision.

    Interview

    The people are very friendly. I had first round of interviews on campus and the second round was at the EY office. Really good experience overall. They want to see if you fit with the company culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The case interview was a little difficult because they asked some accounting questions and I am not an accounting major. Make sure you know how to do a SWOT analysis.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    First round of interviews was just one 30 minute interview. This was mainly just a conversation, I was very surprised that he did not ask me a lot of questions, I think the purpose was mainly to see if I was a good fit and could hold a conversation.

    Final round was an office interview. Consisted of two behavioral (asked the normal behavioral questions) and a case (which was pretty straight forward, Identify the risks you see with their current operations...).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview

    First round is on-campus which is all behavioral and friendly. Next round is at the Alpharetta office where you get to stay at a hotel and have a pre-interview dinner. The following day is 3 rounds of interviews, back-to-back. All behavioral questions again. They are very big on personality and getting to know who you are. After the 3 roundsSo it's more about personality matching than whether you've got what it takes to do the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Many questions on how you resolved a team conflict and how you deal with people in your team/position of authority. A lot of the questions overlapped between the 3 interviewers.Tried to give different examples for the same questions but ended up telling the same stories a few times   Answer Question
