    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First had a phone screen with the HR and a month later a technical phone screen. After the tech screen had to follow up for close to 3 months and the onsite round was scheduled. Onsite round was 4 back to back interviews. After the onsite round never heard back from the HR on offer or reject. They just stopped responding. For a professional firm, one of the most lengthy and unprofessional interview processes.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Met with a handful of partners back to back for four or so hours. Very straight forward interview approach; each partner appeared to have a specific objective to focus on (personality, background, technical ability, job requirements etc). Partners were all polished, open, and friendly. Didn't land an offer, but it was a great experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Since a fair amount of travel and client face time was part of the job, they focused on whether I was comfortable switching from a software development career path to a project management role.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied through recruiter and the conversation was pleasant. Phone interview was entirely technical and many detailed coding questions were asked. First interviewer did not follow the schedule and extended the session from half an hour to one hour. Many unexpected challenging questions asked, e.g. have you fired an employee? Terrible experience with EY.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring team made the most of my time by combining interviews. Everyone was extremely friendly and showed enthusiasm for their working experience. Interviewers asked specific questions related to my past experiences, and gave every opportunity for me to ask them questions about the company.

    Reasons for Declining

    I still had anxiety about the big firm reputation. But I have to say, this was extremely difficult to turn down after the quality of people I'd met through the interview process.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Very disorganized process that lasted over 9 months to offer; multiple no shows that required rescheduling. EY did not seem understand or communicate to each other my interests as an applicant. I was constantly having to re-explain what about the practice appealed to me, and what I was actively not interested in. Their most pressing question concerned my tolerance for travel.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Ultimately, the lack of clarity around my role within the practice, combined with an offer that would require me to take a pay cut coming from the industry, led me to decline.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Long series of interviews: 1) recruiter, 2) HR Partner, 4) Senior Manager, and then 4) onsite interview with a consultant, a Senior Manager, and a Partner. All interviewers were kind and professional. Under different circumstances, I would be very interested in joining one of their teams. In fact, I still consider it. All interviewers were honest and sincere about their own experiences, good and bad. I am far more impressed by that honesty than by a firm who tries to show only the positive sides.
