    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Positive experience with the Director of the Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) Department. The environment was relaxed and the interview wasn't long. There were friendly faces and welcoming attitude. He had a few questions about the motivations that brought to EY especially considering that I come from an Engineering background. Mentioning that my sister worked for EY added a lot of value.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through the website.

    Got an invitation for the written test. The written test was an English test and HR essay.

    Almost 2 weeks later I got a phone call telling me that I passed the test and that they would like to arrange an HR interview with me.

    The interview was very nice and smooth we were just having a conversation. They asked about my experience in college and extracurriculars, why I chose EY, and other behavioral questions.

    Around 2-3 working days later I got a call that they would like to arrange an interview with the user plus presentation. I was given a topic exactly 24 hrs before the interview. The interview started with my presentation, Q&A session, and behavioral questions.

    They contacted me half and a week later telling me that I got the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (Iselin, NJ (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, and the entire process took about 3-4 weeks. I had another offer at the time, and they were very gracious and willing to work with an expedited timeline. Interview process was interesting and engaging. They had an initial call to ask some qualifying questions, and then two back to back interviews. One interview was a behavioral interview where they wanted to see if you would be a good fit, and the other was a case study where they wanted to see how well you did under pressure and how your business sense was. Everyone I spoke with was extremely nice and helpful!
