    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I applied online through my school's site and I was contacted via email by the recruiter about my interview. After the first interview which was on my school's campus, I was invited to a second interview. The second interview consisted of three thirty minute interviews and a dinner. About a week or so later all of the candidates were contacted about their individual offers.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    Initial communication was started by a friend passing my resume onto the recruiter. After a couple emails exchanged with the recruiter, she instructed me to apply for the internship during the normal application window. I was subsequently invited to interview. There were two rounds of interviews: The first round was held on campus and questions were generally behavioral with a little bit of small talk mixed in. The second round was at the office, where I was provided with my own office-room, and one-at-a-time, was interviewed by two different employees (1 Staff; 1 Senior).

    Overall, the interview was not bad at all. They basically just want to make sure that you are human and can hold a normal conversation, as you will spending many, many hours locked in a cozy conference room with your coworkers.

    Perception Notes: The main office has a very corporate setting, but you won't be spending much of your time there anyways. As an audit intern, most of your time will be spent at the client site, in which, the setting of each client differs.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied through my college career website. Throughout the semester I met the recruiter and many EY professionals, so by the time I was invited for the first round in-campus interview, they knew who I was, and I knew who they were. I had a 30min interview with a Manager, who asked me the typical behavioral questions about teamwork and leadership. Then I was invited for second round interviews at the firm. I interviewed with 2 professionals for 30 minutes and then played a game of trivia. The interviews were very conversational, absolutely no behavioral or technical questions. But that mean you have to be able to keep a conversation going. So think of questions/topics to talk about.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, the typical questions you'll find on an interview workshop pamphlet.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There's no negotiation, they just tell you your hours and your salary. Its pretty high for an intern though, so no negotiation was necessary.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I got into it as part of the on campus recruiting so its pretty much the same I would think for any other company. Since my school was a target school the interview itself wasn't all that tough. All you really have to do is have a decent resume and an academic track record that shows you are going to get all your accounting credits done before graduation and you are pretty much in. Of course this is assuming that you are articulate, polite, and present yourself as a professional young adult. First round involved handing in our resume at the college career fair, then they invited about 100 of us to a get together. Some of us are then called for an informal interview that involved dinner with a partner and some of their other practices. Those of us called back were called into the office where we were interviewed with other people in management. I got another partner and two senior managers. Then you just wait and they will inform you if you got in.

    Interview

    Was selected for a first round interview, the interviewer insisted that the process be more like a conversation than a behavioral interview. As such, the interview turned about to be a more about s discussion of myself than my resume. Was selected for a second round interview which consisted of a pre-interview dinner and a superday the following the day. The dinner was essentially a chance for the applicants to get to know the firm better and the superday was excellent. Interviewed by a senior manager and a partner both of whom were incredibly friendly and their questions were fairly simple, "Why audit," "tell me about a time when.." and etc. Left after a lunch with a new staffer. Excellent interview process and everyone at the firm helped you feel welcomed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through University website, was informed I was chosen for a first round interview. Invited to attend an EY Dinner with all other interviewees and professionals from the firm. The next day, a greeter led us to the half hour long interview. My interviewer told me a little about himself and then asked the same of me. The interview was mostly conversational, but he asked me about a few things on my resume and my class load. Was called back for a second round in the city.

    At Super Day, 16 potential interns and full-timers were put into a room where we introduced ourselves. We were then shown a PowerPoint and told a little more about the company. After, some of us were told to first stay in the room for a Panel, consisting of a few new hires, who were there to answer any questions and give us advice. Others went straight to the two half hour interviews, then we switched. Those were pretty straight forward. Both the senior manager and partner who interviewed me were really nice. The first asked me questions- like how I handle multi-tasking, what the most recent thing I was really proud of was and something I've worked on or done that was frustrating and other similar ones. Other questions were resume based- then we just chatted and she pretty much told me I passed all of the questions she had.The partner I interviewed with asked more resume based questions, especially about the older things on my resume. He asked about a few competitions I did 2 and 4 years ago, which I wasn't expecting. The mood was really relaxed and casual though and we joked a bit. We related on tennis and some other interests as well. Overall, really relaxed interviews that went by smoothly and quickly. No curve balls were thrown, perhaps because of Vision 2020.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY (Redwood City, CA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through on campus recruiting, got first round on campus interview, then flew to have second round interview in office. All questions were behavioral/about your resume. Talking with other interviewees, I think it was a consensus that the first round interview was actually more difficult and more serious while the second round superday interviews were more laid-back. So if you get an in-office interview, know that your chances are pretty good!

    Interview

    My interview process went very smooth. I would say that networking is the most important thing you can do. If the interviewers REALLY like you and you have some sort of experience with leadership, communication, and working with teams, there is no reason why you shouldn't get an offer.
