    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EY (Sydney) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview first for their risk management consulting jobs - it was just about my background and skills. A face-to-face interview with scheduled about 1-2 wks after the phone interview. It was a panel interview - a company director and a line manager. I talked about my broad knowledge in risk management consulting and community service work. However, the role was targetting specifically on AML, which I had some exposure but not a great deal. It went about the 45mins. I got rejected after few hours of the interview. Some feedback was provided a few days later - they needed someone with very strong AML background. That's about it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EY (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The recruitment process was quite prolonged but they kept in good contact during the process. All administration was handled by a single point of contact, which made it very easy to follow and you knew who to contact with questions. All interviewers I met with were very kind and professional and felt like unexpectedly warm persons that were very down-to-earth and relaxed.
    Only negative experience was that I was asked to do a guesstimate, which feels strange as a senior hire.

    Interview Questions

    • If you got hired and you and me sat here together in 3 years time and your were very dissatisfied with how these 3 years would have gone; can you describe what happened and how they were?   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. I interviewed for the position at Enterprise Intelligence within the Financial Services Office, New York. The first round was phone interview with a senior manager. It was pretty straight forward and pleasant. More of conversational, went on for half an hour. I was then shortlisted to appear for their in person interview round called EY SUPERDAY in New York. The interview started at 10:30 am and ended 12:30 pm. There were 4 in person interviews for 30 mins each - 2 managers, 1 Senior Manager and 1 Recruiter. All of them were mostly behavioral and situation based - tell us about your experience, why EY, how would you handle a difficult boss, how do you work in teams etc. Overall, the experience was pleasant and I was satisfied the way I performed.
