    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Hoboken, NJ) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Interview was broken down into the following

    1) HR - talk about the job details etc..

    2) Telephonic interview by a Manager who would like to understand my daily responsibilities and my skill set.
    3) Telephonic interview by a Manager who would like to do the same as above.

    4) Onsite interview with 4 back to back 30 min interval sessions with 4 different people Manager, Senior managers & a Director. (2 technical & 2 non technical)

    After this I was told I will get an offer :). But the game changes a little bit, and Interview co-coordinator calls back to say that the team wants me to meet with another 2 big folks from the practice. According to the coordinator this will be a video interview, and when I got an email from scheduling team, it turns out to be a telephonic one.

    Not sure why they do this????

    Is it because someone during 1-1 wasn't happy / is it because some one really wants to know about me?

    Now, the 2 more telephonic rounds are scheduled... and will update you shortly.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with a general HR representative. Then second phase was an interview with a manager in the group that I applied for. They provided a review back to HR and then there was a follow up call with the final HR rep. Afterwards I was scheduled for an in-person, about a month out from my last phone interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Interview process took about two weeks (final round was yesterday still awaiting decision). Started with a phone screening with a recruiter essentially asking about my experience and what interests me about EY. Told me about the position and benefits. Got an email the next day saying the team wanted to speak with me. Next step was a video conversation with a manager on the team. He asked me questions about my experience, project management exp, etc. and then a few behavioral questions (tell me about a time when...). The following Monday I was contacted to schedule a “Superday” the following Friday. The day consisted of an office tour with a new consultant and then 3 interviews. Interview one was the typical case study (“analytical interview”) which was a standard profitability case. The next was a behavioral interview where they give you a situation as a consultant and ask how you’d handle it. The third was a conversational interview with the partner. Overall very good experience with them.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    At least for me the interview process took almost 6 months to complete. Hope this is not typical for others. There are couple of rounds of interviews using video conferencing. Had good experience with interviewers with positive attitude during the call.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Emory, GA).

    Interview

    On-campus. Networked heavily before the interview. The manager told me I did great, but the practice in which I was applying didn't need at the moment someone with my skillset. Duration of the interview was 60 minutes and the interviewer was amicable.

    Interview

    Pretty fast process, but the manger I went did not seem to be interested in doing the interview, he questioned my background which I guess is not typical, rather than understand why I applied for the position
