Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in December 2011.

I got a phone interview from Ernst & Young after clearing the resume screening at the university. The phone interview was behavioral and most of the questions were based on business and leadership skills. Few questions were
1) tell me about yourself
2) Technologies i have worked on
3) about projects
basically more about my resume qualifications

Then, in the one on one interview i had 3 rounds
2 behavioral and 1 case interview

The behavioral questions were
1) tell me about yourself
2) why E & Y
3) Some highlights from my resume - they wanted to hear more about it
4) Difficult situation i had to face when i was in a team and how i over came it
5) My strengths and weaknesses
6) When I had to tell something bad or stern to a team member without making them feel bad
7) Tough situation as a team leader and how i over came it
8) leadership scenarios
9) As a communicator, business analyst

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    On-campus 1st round: basic behavioral questions; online essay given later

    New York final round: case study where you are given a packet of information and review it conversation-like with a manager. It is not a typical MBB case where you must ask the right questions for more information, etc. Then there are 2 behavioral interviews, where it is more of a conversation with managers who want to see if you would be a good fit for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you were in a team and someone wasn't pulling his/her weight. How did you handle that situation?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First an alumni interview in a campus event. The alumnus who interviewed me was a manager. Then I was asked to do an online writing test. A few weeks later, when I thought this was hopeless, I was invited to the final round (Megaday). There were three rounds, including one behavioral with a partner, one case interview with a manager, and another situation-based behavioral with someone who doesn't work in advisory/FSO. The partner interview was really random. The case I got wasn't too difficult. I actually suggest that you should prepare over Deloitte's online cases for their business tech advisor positions. To be honest, I am pretty sure I am gonna be rejected. EY invited a lot of candidates for Megaday. But I don't think they actually recruit a lot (20 at most I guess for TAP staff). This is an amazing job and the people at EY are super nice.
