    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied on their own recruiting website. Got a call a couple of days later to schedule an interview with the senior manager. Met the senior manager, and was very nice and laid-back. Crazy part that i wasnt ready for was that the interview ended with me taking something of a test. I was given tax data and was told to fill out the tax form. I was given 20 minutes. When i finished, i handed my sheet in and that was the end of the interview. I was told i would get a call if they wanted to hire me. Sure enough not 3 hours had passed when i got the call from EY saying that they wanted to hire me and when i could start. Very quick to respond to my application and got an offer same-day of the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Jacksonville, FL) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a tax analyst position in the EY Service & Delivery department. Had a pre-recorded digital interview, got called into the Jacksonville office for a 3 round face to face interview. The interview process was fairly easy, no difficult questions or case study. I got an offer for the position, but the pay was significantly low for such a big company. I noticed the Service and Delivery Center for EY had a fair amount of not so positive reviews. That alongside the low compensation, I declined the offer.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I went for a walk in interview for the Tax analyst position.
    First round was Communication test. They gave us 4 topics, had to choose one and speak on it. Fairly simple. Few selected ppl qualified for the next round which was aptitude test. It was a bit tough and in 3 sections. Those who qualified were called for the next round that is HR the next day. HR round was very basic, sort of an introduction.
    Now am waiting for the Technical round call, hopefully soon, its been a week already.
