    Interview

    It was very slow in terms of getting interview scheduled and hearing back from HR. Interviews were very casual and conversational. However they will really drill down on your resume and ask specific questions on past experiences and skillset. There were three back to back interviews, each lasting approximately an hour each.

    Interview

    One day I got a call from an HR and she asked me about me about my background and whether I was interested in E&Y - TAS. The call lasted for around 30 minute.

    After that, I received a case study from a recruiting director. By this case study, they wanted to check my accounting and finance knowledge, and my analytical skills. I nailed the the case study and exceeded their expectations.

    Finally, I was invited to E&Y Times Square office in NYC for the final round. The final round consisted of four one-on-one interviews. These four interviews was conducted by 2 seniors managers, the recruiting director and a partner. All of these interviews were behavioral. I think, they were checking my communication skills and fit. I wasn't asked a single technical question.

    This process took only 4 working days.
