    Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at EY in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was through campus placements. There were 5 rounds in total - aptitude test, HR interview, GD, technical interviews and managerial interview. EY was the slowest companies I've faced in terms of declaring results in each round and also declaring the result of the final round. The whole process started in December and was concluded in March.

    The aptitude test was fairly challenging and innovative as well. The HR round was simple and straight forward, the interviewer was friendly and all questions asked were general in nature.
    GD was normal and judged by a panel of 3 present in the room.
    Technical round was again challenging and they grilled all the candidates with a barrage of accounting and financial questions.
    The interviewer in the managerial round seemed clueless about the process, displayed poor body language and was evidently disinterested in the company, the interview and seemingly everything else.

    The results from EY take a painfully long time to come out because of which they lose many good candidates to other companies. They take all candidates for granted.

    All in all the process was not even close to some other companies' hiring process in terms of approachability, fairness, and respect for candidates time. Personal recommendation would be to expect EY to take time in everything they do and always have back up plans.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost all questions inter technical round were challenging as requires decent knowledge of accounting.   Answer Question

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    I got a direct call by HR for the vacant position. The interview process started a little late than planned and ended quite later than I expected. After the initial written tests and subsequent GD to filter our candidates my first face to face interview was taken at around 3 PM (considering the interview timings mentioned were 9 AM to 5 PM). The first round was more of HR explaining about company and the team I was supposed to join in. One of the process managers accompanied HR in my first round who grilled me on certain questions. My final round was taken by my Manager and an assistant manager. Manager was very polite and specifically interested in my skill set. The assistant manager on the other hand grilled me almost on my every reply. In the end my Manager gave me a positive response which was quite relieving.

    Interview Questions
    • They check the reason I left my previous job and if the same situations arose in the current company how would I cope with it.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The HR didn't even consider my prior experience and hired me on the very basic level which I got to know after I joined the company. In this front I felt a bit cheated. A word of advise to prospective job seekers " Ask lots of questions to the HR before you accept the offer and be clear in the role and Job title they have offered you".
    For this role whatever they offer you is like a take it or leave it offer
