    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First round - 30 min case + 30 min behavioral/market sizing
    Case is fairly standard with a quantitative calculation component
    Final round - 30 min case + 30 min behavioral + 90 min group presentation
    Case is about the same difficulty level as the first round case; group presentation time is very tight but a very fun experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I learned about Parthenon-EY through an on-campus event they organized with my student group my sophomore year. This fall (my junior year), I applied online and was contacted for a first round on campus. My first round interviewers were extremely friendly and approachable and gave me fairly standard cases.

    That same night, one of them called me to tell me I'd be moving on to final rounds in the SF office and to offer feedback. Even though I was unable to make the date that they'd scheduled for group interviews, they were very accommodating and let me reschedule. I did fairly standard cases with two VPs and then a consultant.

    Throughout the entire process, everyone I interacted with was pleasant and engaging! I received an offer but declined because I had others.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through my college's career center. Was contacted in a few days that I had a first-round on-campus interview. The same evening of my interview, I was called and informed that I was invited to a final-round interview in the Boston office the following week. The final-round consisted of three different interviews. One was a group case interview, where four of us were in a room and had an hour to prepare a 30 minute presentation to two managing directors, while a senior associate sat in the room the entire time to analyze our preparations. There was also one, 30-minute behavior/resume-focused interview, as well as one, 30-minute case-based interview. All the cases include data and graphs for the interviewee to analyze and incorporate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The on-campus interview was a two-part interview with a fit and case section, the fit was very straightforward and the case was simple and based on profitability. Both interviewers were very kind and friendly. The final round had a group case, a slightly more complex profitability case and a fit component as well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY.

    Interview

    Behavioral and Case interview. Classic fit interview and questions. Case was not bad but was very quantitative. It was a classic profitability case. In the behavioral they asked a market sizing question, but they were only looking to see thinking process.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Parthenon - EY in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 cases, one longer more strategic case and the second is a quick market sizing. It is likely that the strategy case also incorporates some sort of market sizing question as well. Behavioral is short and asks you the expected questions of why parthenon, why consulting, etc.
