    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Avoid it if you can. I went through the interview process. They asked for my personal information including my reviews. I went through two round of interviews and received a verbal offer. After receiving a verbal offer, they asked for a paycheck on november time. They said that they had to verify if I still work for the company. Companies are not allowed to ask for your paycheck effective 30 days from November 6th in New York. Even after taking my personal check and information, they said since there is no need at this point. They can't make an offer. Even the interview process as a whole was very disorganized.

    Recruiter reached out on linkedin - phone screen with recruiter than in person with partner and manager. My manager was in a different location so we used a Skype interview - she talked more than me. The partner also didn't ask many questions - just talked about the firm and answered my questions. Got a brief tour of the office.

    Started with a Human Resources point of contact from my recruiter. I sat in one room with each individual interviewer visiting me in the one location. Started with an Audit Manager for about 30 minutes and then spoke with two Partners focused on Private Equity and Hedge Fund line of business for an hour in total. The process was relatively painless except there were some product specific questions to ensure I really knew the products I claimed were on my resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    3 stage interview process: Telephone interview with one person from the department, in person interview with several members of the department, and an in person interview with the head of the department. Entire process took a while, but everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

      First question was somewhat challenging because it was hard to differentiate among the big 4. They are all pretty similar.
