    Senior Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Had four interviews. One with HR, two with Sr. Managers and one with a Partner. The process was lengthy but well worth it. The questions were all behavioral and related to work and prior work experience. I suggest going through interview questions but really focusing on your past experience to answer the questions.

    Proposal Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a total of 6 interviews returning to EY on 6 different days. This took nearly one year with each interviewer promising a start date of next month and then calling back to say they are a little behind schedule and the start date will be moved up a couple of months. I received an offer a year later, but by then, I had another promising job offer which I took instead. The interview process was difficult and took too long.

    Transfer Pricing-modeling Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Three steps: Phone interview, financial statement case and on-site including a writing test. The phone interview is quiet normal, tell me about yourself and some easy behavioral questions. On-site interview is not easy, including four interviews with three manager and one president. Be prepared to answer every question on your resume and also be prepared to answer some very tricky questions. Final interview actually is a case study about valuing the company, but they interviewer asked in a very obscure way so I even didn't realize what he want me to do.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    4 hours of GMAT questions. I was prepared for this but I thought it was a bit too much for an Internship that is very low paid. I dont know if anyone bothered to check my answers, but they let me know that I passed. After that the HR contacted me and asked to wait until some Partner is in town. Since I already had a job, I didnt bother her anymore, nor she ever got back at me. Very unprofessional.
