    It was a job fare with 3 universities and big four. The interviewer of the Big 4 already prepared 3 to 5 questions. He was always taking notes of my answers and he was open to explain his duties at the corporation. Previous day we had a cocktail and he was very friendly, but during the interview he was very neutral.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very straightforward. It focused on behavioral questions more than anything. The group spent a lot of time explaining what they do, and were more interested in my resume than giving a case study.

He moved to final round which was a super day at the office. I had three behavioral interviews with 2 managers and a partner. they are extremely nice and want you to succeed. I would talk to as many people as possible during the super day and during the reception the night before (which i did not do but wish I did)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied through recruiter and the conversation was pleasant. Phone interview was entirely technical and many detailed coding questions were asked. First interviewer did not follow the schedule and extended the session from half an hour to one hour. Many unexpected challenging questions asked, e.g. have you fired an employee? Terrible experience with EY.

    Interview

    Typical campus recruiting experience. It supposed to be in person interview but because of the snow, we interviewed on Skype. But highly suggest do it in person. The interviewer is nice and the questions are very normal and you can get most of the questions online. In terms of the case, you had better to practice a lot before the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY (Washington, DC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting, got first round on campus & went to the reception for first round interviewees. Overall the process wasn't too bad - the interview is very behavioral and didn't have anything technical included. EY's main campus in DC is in Northern VA, and it's very likely to encounter a veteran working at EY in DC. I think it's difficult for an undergrad to connect with some of these veterans.
