    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    1st Round is behavioral on campus. It was very standard, basically walking through resume. 2nd round was on Megaday in New York. There were three rounds, two behavioral and one case. I'm an engineering student with no finance background, but the case wasn't too demanding. It tested on your analytical and critical thinking.

After lunch we picked up our stuff and took our respective transportation back to our respective campuses.

    Launch Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was an unforgettable one. I'm not sure why they have the wrong people conducting interviews. An interview, from my opinion, is suppose to answer the question, "will this person succeed here?" but it seems with this firm the interviews ask, "how well can this candidate interview?"

    Senior Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very unorganized. Was supposed to meet with two partners and when I got there one of them ended up being out of the office so I ended up interviewing with a random cranky old man who was not happy that he had to interview someone on short notice as soon as he got into the office. He was from another service line who had no clue what he was talking about in regards to the role I was interviewing for, and what type of experience was necessary, and was very adversarial to every response I gave. They should have just cancelled the interview and re-scheduled when the original person (who was most versed in the job functions I'd have been performing) was available.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't remember any questions. The interview with the first partner was more of an adversarial exchange with him regarding the experience we each had and how it differed. I tried to stay calm and reduce the snark involved in my responses as much as possinle, but that is very difficult to do when someone is constantly interrupting you and trying to tell you that the work you've done has been done "the wrong way" because it is not inline with the work they've done. The entire time I was thinking "dude...it's called client service....you perform services in line with client preferences, policies, and procedures while ensuring it complies with any applicable regulations...stop being a know it all."   Answer Question
