    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The process took 5 interviews from phone to face to face. It took a little over 2 months from first interview to offer. Each interview was very comfortable and familiar. The interview path was from the location manager, to the Director of the group. Each interview took an average of 45 mins. This was a new group that EY had developed and needed staff to promote its services to eligible staff.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Had phone screens with recruiter and then a consultant. Neither seemed to know much about data science. Went in person and met with 4 people of various levels, fairly softball standard interview stuff. No technical screening other than a few ML 101 type questions. Then had another phone interview with a partner. Was told they wanted to make me an offer, ended up not making me one because they were not able to match my current salary.

    Overall, I don't think they know much about Data Science or Machine Learning, nor do they know what people who have those skills are making.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral stuff (tell me about a time you had a conflict with your boss, etc.)   Answer Question
    • What are you working on right now?   Answer Question

    Campus Recruiting Coordinator (FSO) Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a different role online and a recruiter reached out to me within hours to schedule a phone interview. The recruiter later introduced me to a role that better fit my profile, which was Campus Recruiting Coordinator (FSO). I was later offered an onsite and knew it wasn't going to go well as soon as I met the first interviewer.

    1) My first interviewer was 15 minutes late and by the time she arrived, there was no room booked, signaling lack of organization. We therefore had to circle around the floor to find a room. 2) My interviewer seemed frustrated given the lack of organization and it showed in her manner of asking questions. 3) My interview time was decreased because of reason #1. Overall, awful candidate experience and the questions asked were very vague.
