    FIDS Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus event. Professionals sent to recruitment events and interviews were really nice. Horrible experience with recruiters though. Campus recruiter seemed disinterested and barely looked eye-to-eye and many students noticed that. FIDS recruiter sent out very late notifications about second round interviews (2 business days) in the middle of midterm week. Worst, heard nothing for 3-4 weeks when they said they'll get back in two. Very unprofessional. Had to follow up with a manager.

    Audit Staff Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Really easy, basically they just psychoanalyzed me from head to toe and used a robot to figure out if I wanted the job or not. Very simple. I'm also posting this to view the salaries because Glassdoor wants me to write something in order to view the information on the website. No clue why this is but here I a writing filler just to access the website.

    BAP - Advisory Staff Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was really chill, as are all Big Four interviews. You never know how well you did until they notify you. The interviewer was a manager and asked me some questions about my resume and we just went off from there. We ended up talking about hobbies, travel, and theatre. It really was just a casual conversation. Just smile a lot.

    Complex Securities Valuation Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    My first interview was actually with EY's Business Modeling and Valuation group. During that interview, I was told about Complex Securities Valuation and that they might be interested in my quantitative background (finance, applied mathematics). From here, I had a technical interview over the phone. This went well and I was flown to NYC for the final set of interviews. The night before the interviews they had a dinner in Manhattan which was very nice and allowed me to meet some of the team. The next day I had about 2 and a half to 3 hours of interviews at once. It was 5 interviews in a row, 2 with managers and 3 with the partners that run this area of the business. All of the interviewers were extremely nice people who genuinely wanted to know me as a person, told me about themselves some, and asked about my past schoolwork and non schoolwork, such as hobbies. After the interviews, I felt very happy with the whole experience whether I received the job or not.
