Tax Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bangalore (India)

I applied through college or university - interviewed at EY in January 2014.

Interview Details Step One of the Hiring Process entailed an Aptitude Test, which tested us on the grounds of Verbal ability, Quantitative Ability, Data & Logical Reasoning and MS Excel.

The shortlisted candidates had a one-on-one interview with the HR Personnel.

Furthermore, the Assurance candidates were subject to a round of Group Discussion, followed by two interviews.

However, the Tax candidates had only two rounds of interviews that followed. These interviews included certain technical questions, HR questions, and situation-based questions. It was concluded with a small case-study like problem.

Interview Question – The situation based questions were a first for me. But they went quite smoothly.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in November 2013.

Interview Details Had 4 rounds overall; Group Discussion, Aptitude Test, HR, Technical.
GD and Aptitude Test were standard, nothing out of the ordinary. HR & Technical; make sure you know your CV inside out. Nothing difficult as such, just be confident and cheerful, the HR is there to help u out. Very friendly experience overall. :)

Interview Question – Nothing difficult as such. Unexpected question was most favorite subject during course of study.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – A bit of leeway on the negotiation provided u have experience or qualifications higher than a degree.
