    Assurance Staff Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at EY in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called for the interview through a consultancy the evening before the interview.
    This the usual entry level contractual job for 3 months in the bangalore GSS ( essentially offshore team to other worldwide on shore teams).
    The interview was on a sunday morning at 9.30.

    Extremely short GD round. Only to test english fluency.
    Followed by a 1 hour written test. It was on audit and accountancy basics along with communication skills scenarios and case studies.
    Next was the HR round assessing how willing and hard working the candidate is.
    Finally had to wait 1 hour for my turn in the technical round. ( They tested on all the fundamental accounting and auditing concepts, and questions on everything mentioned in the job responsibilities section in my resume. It lasted half an hour)

    The questions were basic and easy since this is entry level.
    I still have no idea why I was rejected.

    • Most difficult was the detailed questioning on the job responsibilities.   Answer Question

Second was email writing on a paper( based on the situation given) next was aptitude . Duration: 1 hour, 60 questions divide into 3 parts accounts - verbal Ability - logical reasoning.

    Interview Details

    the total process took more than a month and still it is not completed,
    i went in for a Walk-in interview at ernst & young bangalore -india, it took some 5 or 6 hours total, there were around 100 people, most of the candidates were really competitive, and were filtered through GD, english language test, aptitude test and accounting test.
    These tests were the toughest yet i have faced, because of the difficulty of question and more importantly the strict adherence to time limits by hr people.
