    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon.

    Interview

    I had a fantastic experience interviewing with EY-Parthenon. Because I could not find the application portal for APD candidates, I cold emailed a couple of partners. One of them got back to me quickly and connected me with a recruiter. I was scheduled to interview on-site within a week.

    There were four interviews in total, all of which included standard case questions: M&A, estimation/approximation, etc.

    I ultimately decided not to join because they had limited locations; however, they were my second choice and I would have loved to be a part of the team.

    M&A Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY-Parthenon (New York, NY (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    1st round was video-based through a Skype like platform. Strictly behavioral questions based on my previous experiences and "Tell me about a time.." type questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. Was asked about my interest in M&A so make sure to brush up on some recent deals in the news that you can discuss briefly.

    2nd round was a superday in the NYC office with 3 30 min. interviews: 2 fit + 1 case. Fit sections were very similar to those in the 1st round. Case was M&A-centered based on advising a client on purchasing a certain company. The case had a straightforward strategy component and a somewhat confusing quant. part.

    Overall a solid interview experience.
