Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY (London, England) in February 2012.

Interview

I submitted my application online through their website. They accepted my initial application and I then had to go through a phone interview. After the phone interview I moved on to the Online Testing portion. Then begins a quantitative test and an analytical test. If passed you are then invited to participate in a 1:1 interview. Again, if they deem you an acceptable candidate, you are then invited to the Ernst and Young testing day. The testing day consists of a 1:1 interview with a executive, followed by a group presentation which you are expected to have prepared for. Following the group presentation you put through the Ernst and Young written tests. Which are composed of a quantitative examination as well as an analytical exam. Lastly you are required to go through an interview with a partner.

    I applied through the on-campus website and in the EY website too. I got the first round on-campus interview and nothing unexpected. They will ask you to talk about yourself, basically going through your resume. Besides that, they will ask behavioral question, such as teamwork etc. Did not proceed to the second round interview.

Interviewed by two of the directors and mostly they asked stuff in regard to my resume. Both of them are very friendly and they asked a few double entry questions which are quite easy. In the end of the interview, the directors encouraged me to ask them more questions. You can ask any questions whether it is related to the job or not.
