    Graduate Tax Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (London, England).

    Interview

    Filled out online application form, then was invited to complete Learning for a Changing World assessment. It took me about 1.5 hours, with 28 questions, a combination of situational judgment and simple calculations, mainly reading charts and calculating percentages. Some multiple choice and some where you just type the answer. The maths part was not too difficult and there isn't a time limit, though it may be time recorded. Judgment-wise I think they are looking for people who are comfortable with maths and technology.

    Then the Learning on the Job stage was about 30 minutes with 4 parts. First write an email introducing yourself to a new client. The second and third part was to do more maths questions based on a big powerpoint, most of them simple except one about tax which was really hard. Final stage was video recorded, first some questions to do with the scenario, like 'how would you explain your work to a new colleague taking over while you're leaving to attend a training course'. Last question was the standard why this role and why this location.

    Was sent rejection email within 15mins of finishing Learning on the Job. I think I must have been too slow with the calculations.
