Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

Interview

First round on-campus interview: two interviewers (one associate, one manager) and 30 minutes each. Both focused on the case and the behavioral. Fish taco food truck market sizing.
Second round onsite interview: one group interview, 3 one-on-one with a variety of employees.
Overall, it wasn't that bad. Cases were very straightforward.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    An on campus recruiter came and conducted interviews. The format was a behavioral section with the usual "tell me about yourself" and "why do you want to work here" questions. The second part was a business case. The case was a little challenging but not too difficult. Interviewers were very nice and friendly and made me feel comfortable as I was going through the process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 cases, one longer more strategic case and the second is a quick market sizing. It is likely that the strategy case also incorporates some sort of market sizing question as well. Behavioral is short and asks you the expected questions of why parthenon, why consulting, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon.

    Interview

    Interviewed through campus recruiting. First round consisted of one case and one fit interview. Interviewers were very friendly and the case was straight forward. Received a call that evening informing me I had made it through to the second/final round. Final round was in the Boston office. They took all the interviewees out to dinner in small groups the night before the interview and everyone was incredibly friendly and professional. The interview consisted of two cases and one group case. The two cases were slightly more difficult than the first round but nothing crazy. The group interview was more difficult since I had never done anything like that before. Overall it was a great experience, loved the people I met and learned a lot through the process.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a few weeks later regarding a first round phone interview. Phone interview consisted of two rounds, behavioral fit and case study in the first, and a longer case study in the second.

    Was invited back to a series of interviews at their new office at NY. 1 group case, 2 case interviews. Group case interview was great. Case interviews were pretty challenging.

    Interview

    Did not make it through the first round. 2 back-to-back phone interviews, one consisting of only a 20 minute case, the other mostly fit/behavioral questions followed by a short market sizing problem. Both interviewers were very nice, supportive. Questions weren't too difficult, but I stumbled a couple of times. I suspect you have to ace these questions to move on.
