    Audit Staff I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Irvine, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Attended a bunch of networking event to meet and talk to professionals. Applied through career website on campus and their company's link. Got a first round interview which included two 30-minute interviews with one manager and one senior manager. The interviewers went through my resume and asked questions off of my resume. It was pretty much conversational but at one point I felt like I was attacked by questions. When I asked questions back, one of the interviewers didn't even seem to want to answer my question at all.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    GREAT interview process though it was hard. Submitted CV and Cover through school's job website, contacted within two weeks for first round which was at my school. 45-1hr with one person and was very conversational. Be able to talk about yourself in a positive friendly manner. Second round contacted within 3 days by phone call, setup a flight to Dallas for centralized second round (7 sessions I was session/week 7 of second round interviews). About 100-200 kids per session I'd guess. Dinner reception at the hotel first night was informal talking and getting to know people, then next day was three one-on-one interviews round robin style 1hr each. You're in a group of three students and there are three interviewers which rotate in separate rooms. Basically you're competing against the kids in your rotation (but pretty positive they don't cap classes so all three students in a rotation group could get hired). Prepare for case interview, know how to do basic strategy analysis. Was notified a few days later of offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    They recruited on campus and immediately started with a case question. It was unexpected and a little bit of a turnoff given the relatively smaller group you'd be working with and the importance of cultural fit. The interviewer was very nice and seemed genuine. I got stuck on the case question and he nicely walked me through what his thoughts were on it.

    I went through a head hunter and had 3 interviews. It was intimidating as it is a Big 4 accounting Firm and it is very corporate. But the people were pretty nice and I got through it.

    Interview Questions

    • I always hate when they ask my greatest weakness!!! They all asked this and what kind of culture I was looking for. Honestly I hate to focus on the negative and if I'm looking for a job most likely I don't care about the culture - I just need to pay my bills!!! But seriously, of course everyone wants a friendly fun environment to work in but do you was that to a bunch of stiff Accountants? Fun isn't on the agenda here!!   Answer Question

    Amazing process. The super day was really pleasant. The case study was not too difficult. Everyone was really nice and we went out to lunch afterwards. It consisted of 6 30-minute interviews with different members of the team. I could really see how awesome the team was and how well they work together.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I was referred from a partner from a different office in another state who reached out to a recruiter for me. She later contacted the right different recruiter, who asked for my resume and transcript. She quickly set up an interview with a Tax Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Imagine you make a very complicated calculation in excel for a client who is going to make a decision. After you reviewed it a couple of times you notice you are going to save the client $10 million in taxes. You give it to your senior and your partner, who review your work. They agree on your calculation and tell the client about the tax savings and the meeting to finalize the transaction is tomorrow. It's 9 o'clock at night and you are finalizing the paperwork, and you suddenly realize you made a careless mistake on excel and instead of putting a minus, you put a plus, so the client is not going to save $10 million, but is going to owe $10 million.
