Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at EY (Bengaluru (India)) in May 2015.

Interview

Based on requirement, you get a call from the job consultants. They normally setup an interview. First round is with a EY manager, followed by EY Senior Manager. If both clears, then normally a client interview takes place followed by EY HR interview.

Interview Questions

  • In IT Advisory most of the questions revolve around Project management and program governance. Anyone who has medium knowledge of PMP or PR2 can crack it. A lot of emphasis is on communication skills and maturity with which you give the interview.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    Case and personality interview, same generic stuff as all the mid-tier companies, its all really accountants trying to be consultants. Lots of over formality in the process and they try to act like they are a top 3 consulting firm, but then quickly admit they are a mid tier.

    Interview process was smooth. I was interviewed by 4 ppl at EY campus. 2Technical &2PMP. Technical interview: they wanted to know how things work. They wanted me to explain process and basics nothing deep. PMP was good they are looking for your communication skills and how do you react to the situations and how do you approach a situation. Overall it was a good interview. They said they will let me know the result in 1-2 weeks. Fingers crossed. waiting for the result.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Embauche dans la partie stratégie.

    Processus d'embauche relativement classique pour le conseil (entretiens de motivation et études de cas).

    Rencontre de plusieurs partners, tous très sympathiques. Aucune étude de cas lors de ces entretiens-là. Le Play-hard-to-get marche bien avec eux, EY Strategy ayant encore tout à prouver et n'attirant pas encore assez les candidats qui choisissent plutôt les noms plus établis.

    Les études de cas sont parfois originales à cause du positionnement multi-métier (on peut vous donner un cas de project finance pour de la stratégie.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They took a long time and seemed very disorganised. After 3 rounds of mostly good interviews I am still none the wiser on why I didnt get the job despite them offering feedback weeks ago and I havent received replies to emails. Not a good way to do business so if that is how they operate, maybe I dodged a bullet. I expected more though so I am quite disappointed.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Not too formal, good conversations - about 3 interviews in total. I felt I was talking to like-minded people, no awkward conversations. I kind of expected to get some sort of offer and in the end it just went silent, which I thought was a bit unprofessional. That said, they are probably suffering from recruitment fatigue with their pace of growth in Ireland. I was not really searching for a job and I am happy enough where I am. I don't mind getting a no, but I don't like getting the silent treatment...

Next round involves a round with either a Senior Manager, or a Director, and/or a Client line manager, depending on the urgency of the role (in that order). Next round is with the service line Partner, followed by HR details gathering round.
