Interview

30 minutes on-campus one on one interview. The HR generally go through your resume and personal questions. They also talk with you about your interests and future career plans. Overall it is more like a coffee chat than a serious question and answers interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    The initial video interview is not fun. You just talk to yourself. Definitely not the benefit you would get being in person. The second round is better because you get to meet with two different professionals. I interviewed on campus which was convenient.

    the process was pretty short; they look at your GPA for college to make sure you have above a 3.5, ask about your classes and which ones you liked and didn't like, and make sure that you can hold a conversation

    Interview

    Behavioral interview. However, I think they have answers that they are looking for. As with any interview, they are looking for bright, enthusiastic, energetic person. Just be prepared with questions that are obvious.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Salt Lake City, UT (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was relatively easy. All the questions the interviewer asked were general. I believe the focus was more on behavior. No technical questions were asked. Nothing about accounting. Be prepared to talk about previous experience and leadership experience. I think they also asked me about expectations, goals (both short-term and long-term).
