    Interview

    After I applied on my school's career website, I got an email for a phone interview. The interview was very specific and asked me about my knowledge in the field. After that interview, I got called in to visit the office in Jacksonville. I had 3 different interviewers from New York. This was less technical. Pretty simple.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Avoid it if you can. I went through the interview process. They asked for my personal information including my reviews. I went through two round of interviews and received a verbal offer. After receiving a verbal offer, they asked for a paycheck on november time. They said that they had to verify if I still work for the company. Companies are not allowed to ask for your paycheck effective 30 days from November 6th in New York. Even after taking my personal check and information, they said since there is no need at this point. They can't make an offer. Even the interview process as a whole was very disorganized.
