Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at EY.

Interview

Long process over the stretch of 4 months with many people in the group, easy interviews with pleasant enough people, one that asked pointed and more difficult questions didn’t know anything about the field, great feedback from all people, but the person that made the ultimate decision never interviewed me and axed me. I wish they did not drag me out for so long.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY in November 2016.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview and we spoke mostly about my background and research. After that the interviewer explained in details about the internship position I was applying for. He was very friendly and the interview was a very pleasant experience. It took some time to get a reply, but after about 2 weeks, I got admitted to the final interview in New York. It is coming in about 10 days, so keep your fingers crossed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process is very slow, and you need to have loads of patience till you get to the final round. Usually, onsite interview will be the last round for most of the companies.
    However, in my case, after clearing the onsite interview(5 rounds) at NYC office, EY has scheduled one more round with some senior manager(if I remember his name correctly, it was Ash Kaduskar).
    And, this interview was a typical stress interview which is like your answer should exactly match the one in his mind else you are unfit for the role. One of the question I was asked is "Why do you think US population is more than India?"
    Anyway, I am glad that I didn't through the "final"round.
    I must say overall experience is very bad!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY in October 2015.

    Interview

    I felt like the whole process was kind of fluffy - like they didn't really care about my skills or qualifications, they just wanted someone who would fit their bill. From the beginning they made it clear that they wanted to satisfy their diversity initiative, which makes it extremely challenging for a white male to get a job there without strong connections. No feedback was provided, which is a major pet peeve of mine.

    The first stage of interview involved discussion on phone. Hr representative called me and discussed to check my fitment to qualify for next stage. Next step was interview in person. EY paid for my traveling expenses which was scheduled in Boston. It was with three different interviewers. One was pure technical interview checking my skills in Oracle domain and the others were more on project/client handling experience and consulting skills.
