    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus and had two 30-minute first-round interviews on campus. First was a 30-minute case, and the second was a market sizing exercise followed by some basic fit questions. Fairly pleasant all throughout, especially the second one. My case interviewer was pretty loath to release information, so I felt like I had to do some additional work to get him to be involved in the case, compared to similar firms. Maybe that's a factor of Parthenon-EY's cases or maybe that was just his personality, I don't know.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting. 1 market size/behavioral and 1 case.
    It was pretty competitive. Work on your resume and cover letter. If your resume is not very good, network a lot.

    Call your alumni in the firm, and the earlier you start, the better. Try to get the intern position and get the full time offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon in December 2015.

    Interview

    Behavioral interviewer was great. Case interviewer was rude. The case wasn't too hard, but the interviewer was not amicable and did not respond well to my questions. If you interview here, be prepared to battle through an obnoxious case interview process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (Boston, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process took about 4 weeks from applying to a final decision. On campus consisted of a market sizing/behavioral and a case interview. Final round included another individual case (1:30) , a group case (:30) , and a behavioral (:30).

    The cases were essentially a market sizing with a few upfront questions and some additional context. Not the most interesting cases to be honest. For the group case, it's important to cite materials and be ready to defend your position.

    Also, they employ a waitlist system so be ready for the 'good news and some bad news' call.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Application includes resume and cover letter, and then there are two rounds of interviews afterwards. The first interview consists of two parts and was virtual. The first was a 30 minute case, and the second was also 30 minutes, but a mix of behavioral questions and a market sizing. The final round “super day” consisted of another case with a Senior Consultant, a behavioral portion with a VP, and then a group case and presentation.
