    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Chicago, IL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiter and I contacted my office of choice through an internal referral. The recruiter in my office on choice contacted me and we had a quick phone interview. After that they called me into the office and I had two interviews with two partners. Afterwards, went out for lunch with a Manager and a Senior. The whole interview process was about two months.

    Interview Questions

    • Short 30 mins interviews with two partners. The questions were fairly straightforward since I was transferring companies in the same job field. What kind of projects I was working on at my previous company, why do I want to make a switch, etc.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Dallas, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process can be long and drawn out, but I think they do this in order to make sure they are making great hiring decisions. I had two phone interviews with recruiting staff that were very friendly and conversational. A few weeks later I had a teleconference interview with the senior management team over the practice for which I had applied. These were light and very conversational as well. I was able to display my skills and apply my background to items they indicated could be a challenge in the position. A few weeks after, the original recruiter contacted me with an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EY (Miami, FL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The actual interviews (two rounds) were great and very productive. However, the overall process was long and took a considerable amount of time from the first interview to having an offer extended. This held up some other offers that were outstanding at the time. But overall, I felt like I made the right decision by joining EY.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EY (Irvine, CA) in October 2010.

    Very complicated, however, was well organized to my surprise. I interviewed alongside 20 other candidates over a two-day period. The first day was an evening social where a mix of professionals and candidates attended. The next morning was a series of three interviews with Managers to area Managing Partners. Afterwords, we were taken out to lunch. During the entire process I was assigned a "buddy" that took me to my interviews and I was able to ask questions with the entire time.

    • The overall interview experience was unexpected. They did an excellent job of interviewing by asking life questions, asking my interests, and talking about life values, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was sent an offer packet in the mail on the day of the verbal offer. There was no negotiation.
