I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in March 2012.

Interview Details Online aptitude test, 1 face-to-face interview. Aptitude test was fairly easy, more about accuracy than quantitative abilities. Should be easy for everyone. Interview involved basic questions plus an easy back of the envelope case.

Should pay attention to basic questions as they seem to take them very seriously.

Very Easy Interview

Transaction Advisory Services Senior Interview

Transaction Advisory Services Senior
New York, NY (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at EY.

Interview Details Submitted resume through Indeed.com, but took 2 months to hear anything. Once initiated, went through 2 phone interviews based entirely on fit, followed by 2 in-office interviews. None of the questions were particularly challenging, but looked to match my experiences with the job at hand. Met one Manager, a Senior Manager, and two Partners.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in Transaction Advisory Services? As stated above, none of the questions were overwhelmingly challenging.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Wasn't any room for negotiation and I admittedly had zero leverage. They had researched pay grades based on years of experience and level which they stuck to.
