    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. A recruiter assigned met me in the foyer and helped me prep for the interview. Thumbs up to her. The actual interview was 30hr long and the recruiter kept asking me behavioural questions, kept testing my soft skills. I fumbled one or two up.

    Actuarial Staff Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY in September 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with EY last year for their internship program, but declined the final round interview invite due to a conflicting offer. I reapplied the following year for full time positions by contacting the recruiter and sending my updated resume. They scheduled a 30 minute phone interview with me and said they would follow up with next steps after the interview. A recruiter told me I would hear from someone within 2 weeks, but I didn't end up hearing back until over a month later with a decision that they were not moving forward. The recruiters at EY were VERY frustrating to work with - probably the worst recruiters of any firm I've interviewed with.

    Transaction Real Estate Staff Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Madison, WI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    An online application, followed by a pre-interview dinner and a 1-1 interview. And if you pass, you can move on to the Big Day in one of the recruiting offices. The staff there was really nice and they are willing to give applicants like me with no background in real estate a chance to the interview session. The pre-interview dinner can be tense to blend in especially if it is the first experience ever. The decision-making process took 3 weeks. However, the interviewer nor HR never responds to emails, which kinds of sucks.

    Phone call with a recruiter from Florida after I was referred to them. The recruiter asked general questions about background and experience. Seemed not to have read my resume thoroughly as some questions were already answered in the resume. Answered all questions and the interview was fine. Later they said they did not have current openings that match my qualifications
