Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in September 2014.

Interview

This was a lengthy interview process which I continuously followed up for status and move things along. Found out about the position and correspondence was directed through a recruiter. Had to submit writing examples and paystub confirmation. Would not negotiate on offer, but initial offer was fair. Once position was accepted, start date was 60-90 days away due to availability of training class. Training/ orientation was 2 weeks in NYC.

Interview Questions

  • Typical questions for the industry I applied for. Nothing unique or surprising.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Received single offer which was fair. Would not negotiate.

    Interview

    Two back-to-back on-campus first round interviews that mainly focus on fit and one quick M&A case study. The second round interview, at least at the MBA level, is at the local office with candidates from multiple schools. These interviews were focused on simulating real-life client situations. I had 4 different interviews, one of which was in a group setting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me through email that he found my resume online in December 2013. Informed me that the whole process will take about two months and offers will role out in Feb 2014. After interviewing twice on 26th January 2014 and 26th February 2014 (after two re-schedules because the Senior Manager was busy with client). I followed up with the recruiter and he informed he will get back to me within a week. However, no response was received for 1.5 months even after my repeated emails. On 10th April 2014, I got an email that I was not selected because of a particular experience background that they needed. The process was great but I expected a swift response because it wasted a lot of my job search time.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really difficult. Mostly technical and behavioral questions from my resume. A brief case was also asked which was easy to crack   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    People were very nice and asked very basic questions. I felt very included and not like I was being attacked in any way. I have been to uncomfortable interviews, and this certainly was not one. I felt that it was both challenging and easy at times, and that the people were genuinely interested in who I was as a candidate and what questions I had.
