    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    First event was a pre-interview social night at the EY office. Next day I had my first interview, one-on-one on campus with a partner. The partner practically told me I would be getting a second round interview at the end, but I didn't officially hear until a few days later. In a few weeks, I went back to the office for the second round. There were a bunch of other candidates there and we each had two interviews. Both mine were with managers. We went out to lunch with other candidates and EY auditors early in their career. There was also a "team-building" or "ice-breaking" exercise at the beginning of the day. I heard back after they had completed their second round of interviews.

    Interview

    My interview process went very smooth. I would say that networking is the most important thing you can do. If the interviewers REALLY like you and you have some sort of experience with leadership, communication, and working with teams, there is no reason why you shouldn't get an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Redwood City, CA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through on campus recruiting, got first round on campus interview, then flew to have second round interview in office. All questions were behavioral/about your resume. Talking with other interviewees, I think it was a consensus that the first round interview was actually more difficult and more serious while the second round superday interviews were more laid-back. So if you get an in-office interview, know that your chances are pretty good!

    Interview

    Was selected for a first round interview, the interviewer insisted that the process be more like a conversation than a behavioral interview. As such, the interview turned about to be a more about s discussion of myself than my resume. Was selected for a second round interview which consisted of a pre-interview dinner and a superday the following the day. The dinner was essentially a chance for the applicants to get to know the firm better and the superday was excellent. Interviewed by a senior manager and a partner both of whom were incredibly friendly and their questions were fairly simple, "Why audit," "tell me about a time when.." and etc. Left after a lunch with a new staffer. Excellent interview process and everyone at the firm helped you feel welcomed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through University website, was informed I was chosen for a first round interview. Invited to attend an EY Dinner with all other interviewees and professionals from the firm. The next day, a greeter led us to the half hour long interview. My interviewer told me a little about himself and then asked the same of me. The interview was mostly conversational, but he asked me about a few things on my resume and my class load. Was called back for a second round in the city.

    At Super Day, 16 potential interns and full-timers were put into a room where we introduced ourselves. We were then shown a PowerPoint and told a little more about the company. After, some of us were told to first stay in the room for a Panel, consisting of a few new hires, who were there to answer any questions and give us advice. Others went straight to the two half hour interviews, then we switched. Those were pretty straight forward. Both the senior manager and partner who interviewed me were really nice. The first asked me questions- like how I handle multi-tasking, what the most recent thing I was really proud of was and something I've worked on or done that was frustrating and other similar ones. Other questions were resume based- then we just chatted and she pretty much told me I passed all of the questions she had.The partner I interviewed with asked more resume based questions, especially about the older things on my resume. He asked about a few competitions I did 2 and 4 years ago, which I wasn't expecting. The mood was really relaxed and casual though and we joked a bit. We related on tennis and some other interests as well. Overall, really relaxed interviews that went by smoothly and quickly. No curve balls were thrown, perhaps because of Vision 2020.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Did not ask any technical or behavior question. Interviewer just went through my CV and ask me to ask him questions. The entire process is very conversational. Get a feeling that the interviewer is just testing the interviewee's interpersonal skill instead of technical skill. I suggest applicants should be prepared to ask some questions that shows you have done some research to the firm.
