    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.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    interviewed at EY in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Rounds of testing and standard application form followed by a competency interview. During this interview they ask you to give examples of when you have displayed their core values. If you pass this you are invited to an assessment centre.

     During assessment there is more testing on numerical and logical questions, followed by a group case study where you expected to read and analyse data to come to a conclusion as a group.

    If you pass this you are then given a final interview by a partner. This is largely less formal, but still pressured.

    Interview Questions
