    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with a manger and a senior manager. Both walked through my resume and asked me the usual questions regarding my experiences up to that point. Prior to this, I had a phone interview with a recruiter.

    Both the manager and senior manager interviews were easy going. There were no technical or trick questions regarding tax or accounting. Interview seemed to be more about fit and personality than knowledge about tax.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    EY recruits heavily at my university. The recruiters were always friendly. Interview is more conversational, a few behavioral questions. No technical questions, unless you are interviewing for a position in TAS. Follow up with recruiters and send thank you notes. They will appreciate it. Make sure you stand out in a positive light and develop a connected relationship with your recruiter. I had a total of five interviews. Two on-campus interviews. And three in-office interviews for FSO New York Tax. I came from the University of Florida. Studied Accounting and had two client-facing internships with EY.
