    Senior Associate Financial Services Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend who works at the Financial Services Office.

    Interview Process:
    1) Phone screen with HR: Basically HR wanted to understand my background and make sure I have consulting experience in order to move forward.
    2) Phone screen with Partner: Since my consulting experience happened 5 years ago, the Partner wanted to make sure I still had the skills. He knew I did not have FS skills but he was comfortable that I had consulting skills so I moved on to the Super Day.
    3) Super Day: I went to the NY office and had 5 back to back 45-minute interview. The first interview was with the Partner, second interview was with HR, third interview was with a senior manager, 4th interview was with a manager and the final interview was with another senior manager. The interviews were conversational. Most of them told me during the interview that it was easier to teach FS skills than teach someone to become a consultant.

    The feedback that I received was that all of them believed I had consulting skills but the deciding factor was the lack of FS skills.

    Audit Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Talent Acquisition Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    The length of the interview process was a big disappointment for me. Two and a half months, interviewed with six people, completed an assessment, only to be turned down in favor of a candidate with prior experience. It seemed like an awfully long time to turn someone down based off of experience, which all of the interviewers knew I did not have in the first place. That really should have happened after the first interview. Instead, the process was drug out for months, all the while being told that I had positive feedback with each interview. I have been a recruiter for a very large corporation for the past seven years. This is not how I would treat my candidates, and this was a real eye-opener for me.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not asked anything that would be "out of the ordinary" when it comes to interview questions. As always, make sure you do your research on the company prior to interviewing. Learn abount current initiatives and hot topics. Ask the interviewer questions about the initiatives.   Answer Question
