    TAP Consultant Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic about my past internships etc.
      How would you define... (gives you an EY catch phrase)
      What makes a good team/leader/project
      How do you deal with problem coworkers (have stories prepared)
      Why EY?
      Do you really want to travel and be a consultant? How come?  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No Negotiation. Salary flex depending on location you preferenced. Signing bonus is 10%. One week to respond. Called me, then offer sent via email.
