    Technology Advisory Program Interview Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a referral.

    Details
    The hiring process took no longer than 4 weeks and was a fairly simple process overall.

    1) Reached out by an EY recruiter in the beginning regarding the nature of the position and a discussion of the type of work involved, asked behavioral questions. Conversation Lasted around 30 mins.

    2) Next I received an email saying I had to complete a timed writing assessment (40 mins) within 48 hours. It was a basic essay. Random topic. If you have done essays in GRE, you should not worry.

    3) A week later, I received an email, I was notified that I had advanced to the second round.

    The second round interview consists of a "super day" at your specific office location (mine was New York), where you attend a series of presentations, then they match you up with a 'Greeter' who escorts you to your interviews for that day. 2 Behavioral Interviews and 1 case study. Behavioral question were very basic - Strength, weakness, leadership, experience in working with teams and how do you handle conflict
    Case study - I was given two pages to read (30 mins to read and makes notes) and after that series of questions were asked. My case study was about credit card company who was trying to expand. It was very basic not like NOT like a consulting case for MBB. Having a basic understanding of frameworks will help.

    Got the call with an offer the Monday following my Thursday interview.

    Advisory Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Campus Recruiting - Great interview. Asked many behavioral questions. Gave me scenarios and asked what I would do. There is a written component which is really east and you receive in an email a few days later.

    SuperDay - This is your secon round of interviews. You go to the office where you would be interning. There are 3 interviews. 1: Basic interview. Ask same behavioral questions. Walk through your resume/experience. 2: Case study. Not that difficult. I would recommend practicing. Know how to work through a problem and think out side of the box. They want to see that you are capable of critical thinking. They do not necessarily care if you are right, rather they want to see how you attack a problem. Just stay calm and composed. 3: Last interview is geared toward how you would fit in EY. Scenario questions are asked as well as job specific questions.

    Overall great experience. The entire staff at EY was very open to questions and the interviews made me fall more in love with EY.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study is by far the hardest part of the interview process. Google EY Case Studies and look at practice ones. Also listen to the podcasts that they send via email.   Answer Question

    Advisory Staff Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Mid september the director of my program sent out an email alerting us to a few job offers EY had for MIS students. I finished my application around Sept. 20th. Later that week I got an email back saying I had an on campus interview the following week.

    I found the on campus interview to be rather unorganized. First they put you in a room with some Staff from the local office then take you in to do a behavioral (resume walk through) interview with a manager through the local office. "Tell me about a time you were a leader" "What is your experience with tech, Excel, Access etc". I thought I did pretty bad as me and the interviewer didn't really hit it off she was pretty bland but the questions we're easy exactly what I expected.

    Three weeks later I heard back that I had an Office Visit interview for mid november in NYC (my first choice office as indicated in first interview). They fly you in if you're far enough, put you up in a hotel the whole nine yards. Definitely take the hotel even if you're not too far so you can feel relaxed going in the day of and not worrying about traffic.

    9:30 you meet in the office, Recruiters give you and other dozen or so candidates a brag slide show about how great EY, standard rankings and stuff. Then they match you up with a 'Greeter' who escorts you to your interviews for that day. Whole day felt super rushed, interviews back to back to back. My first was with a Manager, then Senior Manager and finally a case with a Partner. First two interviews we're pretty behavioral, only asked one or two questions actually and my answers turned into a conversation. Partner interview with a case was pretty intimidating but they are looking for your thought process not an answer. Case was NOT like a consulting case for MBB, I studied some frameworks but did not use them, it is a written case.

    Got the call with an offer the Monday following my Friday interview.

    Interview Questions
    • 20 minutes to read the case and analyze it. Case was about 6 pages long, a lot to look over in a short period of time.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiting. Applied through school website, then was invited to first round on-campus interview. Heard back within 2 days about an invitation of office visit. Within 3 business days they offered me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • The 1st round interviewer was a manager, who asked all behavioral questions. Such as "You've done many community services, was there a situation when you took the lead while you were not required to?" or "tell me a situation when things were not going to the right direction, and someone in your team was not corroborative, how did you deal with it?" Very hard to involve that person into some interesting conversation besides answering BQs. In the office visit there were 2 rounds of interviews, very conversational, with one manager and one senior manager, they asked me about the 1120s I have prepared in my previous internships, and we talked about teamwork, global mindset (EY's global talent help), tax incentives, the differences between working at corporate and CPA firms, how is working environment in corporate, CPA exams, etc. Questions: "was there a time when you were less motivated?" "how did you deal with challenges/conflicts"   View Answer
