    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took longer than I expected, but was a fairly simple process overall.

    1) Reached out by an EY recruiter in the beginning regarding the nature of the position and a discussion of the type of work involved.

    2) Next step was a phone interview with a Manager/Senior Manager about the practice in general, type of people they are looking for, and further in-depth discussion of the types of opportunities within the practice

    3) Final part of the process was in person interviews, each lasting anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult. It seemed to be purely a behavioral interview. As in, is this someone I would want to work with on a daily basis, especially late nights, and would they make a great impression on the client.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The interviewer just went through my resume and chatted with me. Only few behavioral questions about leadership, teamwork. And we talked about how to solve team disagreement and what is the most difficult projects I ever had and how I came through. After this, he gave me some time to ask him about my questions about EY

    Applied through campus recruiting system and on-campus recruiting event. Had a first round interview a week later, and heard back about second round 4 weeks later. The first round was walking through resume and behavioral questions, followed by questions to ask the interviewer. The interviewer was a manager and the conversation was quite relaxed.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiting. Go through resume first, next what are the biggest challenge in my life, then tell a situation when your idea is different with your team members and how you solve it. Finally the interviewer let me ask her/him questions I had.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an interview through campus recruiting. A resume drop was followed by a first round interview, and then a superday in their office. The superday consisted of two behavioral interviews and one case interview (the case was only for advisory). The case interview was actually a great experience - EY cares more about how you think and how you interact with the interviewer than they do about you finding "the right answer." The indicated response time was 2-3 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EY in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter had my resume from previous campus communication with EY and contacted me with a phone interview. A few weeks later, I was invited to have an in-office interview with some senior managers and a partner. The interview took all day as it was made up of 3 separate interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • One interviewer asked me no questions, but made me interview her with questions I had about the position. I had asked so many questions already that day, it was difficult to come up with more questions to ask.   Answer Question
