    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. A recruiter assigned met me in the foyer and helped me prep for the interview. Thumbs up to her. The actual interview was 30hr long and the recruiter kept asking me behavioural questions, kept testing my soft skills. I fumbled one or two up.

    Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was ok. She asked good questions and gave me detailed background about the job, but she was fairly negative about the challenges at the company. It's one thing to prepare you for the job and another to talk you out of it. It was a little odd. I had a feeling she didn't think I was right for the position, which is totally fine, but I never heard from them again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was very typical behavioral questions and get to know you questions. First phone interview and then in office interview with heads of the department. They were laid back and very easy to speak with. They informed me of the department and were upfront with what the role was. The overall process was quick and responses on next steps were timely.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was paired up with a current employee who basically accompanied me the whole day and guided me to my interviewers. The interviewers themselves were nice, though they seemed very neutral to my responses. There were two interviews: a behavioral and a case study. I had the case first, but it wasn't too difficult or anything.

    Marketing Comminications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I have worked for and interviewed with all of the Big Four firms. This was the most unprofessional, dreadful, and draining in person interview I have been through.
    The interviewer discredited every point I made and even belittled my relative experience at other firms. Her interview technique was harsh and her questions were not directly applicable to the role itself but more so to see if I would fill the shoes of the person who left.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone interview was 30 minutes. Listened very carefully to the recruiter and spoke without interrupting. They are eager to hear what you have to say and are very interested in your plans, whether it is internal growth or branching out. Integrity is also important to EY. They love self-motivated and hard work people. There really isn't any reason to stress, they are easygoing and casual, so take the conversation lightly.
