    Online aptitude tests, verbal reasoning, numerically etc. it was not difficult, just tight on time. Assessment centre came next did a group challenge involving research and presentation. Had to summarise a company report in 20 mins, proof read a document and do mock phone call to see how you handle a conversation in a working environment. I also did a 50 minute competency based interview, though it was quite relaxed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Communication was very detailed and friendly, they make sure they will call you rather than telling you things solely through emails.

    The interview was strength based which means it is a bit more personal and my interviewer ( who was a director) was absolutely lovely. We chatted about hobbies and families. It shows that they want people who are well-rounded, not just well rehearsed speech-makers.

    I went to career event hosted by my university. I spoke to someone about my interest in EY. I got an email the same night to schedule an interview the next day.

Was invited to pre-interview social where I got to meet a bunch of staff and met the person I interviewed with. Was a very positive experience, no really difficult questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The people were great. I interview with 2 of the partners and had a great conversation with them. It did not take as long as I thought it would, but I would say I did not have a regular interview. So the key is to prepare look up information about the company and try to tie it in the interview to let them know you are knowledgeable of the company.

    • Please try to be as detailed as possible regarding the technical question, business case, etc.   Answer Question
