    Audit Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus recruiter. Had one interview with a partner (he flew out to our campus), then was invited for a fly out to my preferred office. Office fly out consisted of two interviews, a panel for questions, and a snack/lunch. Got an offer for an internship the same day (what I applied for).

    As for the interview questions, EVERYTHING is behavioral based. They seem really team focused, so be sure to brush up on your team based experiences to talk about in the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was really easy. We had on campus interviews then I got invited to the office interview. Took about two weeks to hear back after the office interview that I had gotten the internship. Everyone I met during the office visit was incredibly welcoming and made you feel comfortable. Mainly behavioral questions in the two interviews but they also were trying to get to know you as a person. I also had some really great questions to ask the interviewers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First-round involved on-campus behavioral interviews by two EY managers. The second-round was coupled with an office visit and a case interview (no math or heavy computation involved). You also have to complete a writing sample days before your visit; it was like answering an SAT writing prompt in an allocated time period. The employees and interviewers were extremely helpful and supportive during the entire process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    My interview with EY occurred in two phases. The first one was with the Account manager while the second one was with the cyber security Manager. They were two separate thirty minutes sessions. It lasted for about an hour. They made you comfortable and knew how to break the ice so that you do not lose concentration.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview began with the interviewer telling you about the type of business the company is doing and then talked about himself before asking you the usual "Tell me about yourself" question. Usually most questions are asked on what you have on your resume (so be prepared to explain stuff you wrote on your resume). I was asked about a NIST Special publication pertaining to the job I was interviewing for. In a nutshell the interview was conversational. I left with a positive impression.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (McLean, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty easy, they recruit heavily from my school. A couple pre-night dinners on campus where you get to know the current partners/employees, then one on campus interview, and then an office visit with a networking event and two partner interviews. Overall had a good experience, I had offer from GT for slightly more money but wanted to go big 4

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The first event I went to was a pre-interview reception at a nice restaurant near our campus. This was a great opportunity to talk to the recruiter as well as people who worked in the position I was hoping to get to. The next day I interviewed on campus in a 30 minute behavioral interview. I received a call that evening to tell me I had been selected for an office visit super day. In the super day the next week, they provided us with a nice breakfast/networking with current employees, a presentation about EY, and then went on to interviews. I did 2 behavioral interviews with a partner and manager, and then a case study interview with another manager. The case study was relatively informal and more of a conversation. After that, we were treated to lunch and then were done for the day. The entire day was well put together and very enjoyable.
