    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Four interviews total, one on campus, three at super day. The first one on campus is mainly behavioral. After about a week, I received an email inviting me to have my final interviews at Dallas. At Dallas, they first invited me to a networking dinner. The food was great and you get to meet some of your interviewers. The next day, there are three interviews. One is case, the other two are behavioral interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process took a long time to get in for the In-House interview since I am from a non-target school. Once I got in I heard back within a week. They did two-three interviews and then took us out to lunch of our choosing. It was a long process but I've had a great experience so far.

    Diversified Tax Staff Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (Fullerton, CA).

    Interview

    All behavioral questions. Very nice interviewers; were mostly like conversations. I have accepted 2nd round interviews and am waiting for those. From what everyone else has said, most likely to be behavioral questions. They don't expect you to know technical processes as an entry level staff, so they want to see if they can work with you.

    Audit Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied on both school website and EY website. Notify your interview through school system. The first round is on-campus interview, which is conducted on campus. Most time you will be interviewing with a Manager/senior manager and sometimes a partner. They come to campus frequently before interview starts so you have pretty good chance to network with people and it is likely to have a interviewer you have talked before.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus career center and they got back to me within a couple weeks saying that I would receive a first round interview. First round was over the phone for about 30 minutes and purely conversational and about my background and why I wanted to work at EY. He asked me if I had any questions for him and it ended shortly after that. I was invited back for a super day about 2 weeks later. It was two 30-40 minute interviews that were 95% behavioral/fit. The interviews were easy and the employers that interviewed me were really chill.
