    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    I had a video interview which went fine and then had a face to face interaction with EY. The HR Team was awesome in following up and providing information upfront. I was scheduled to meet someone at the EY office and he was busy so i met this guy - who gave me the worst ever racist experience of my life. It has been a mental trauma for me whenever i think of meeting this guy. And just to put this in perspective - i am a senior professional with more than 18 years experience in my field and have worked across serious complex client facing roles as a director in my most recent job which i had been doing as a high potential employee for the last 4 years.
    The interviewer - was not quite sure of the role he was interviewing for. He mentioned he is going to be rude when he does the interview for a start. But he was far from rude. He was insulting, unprofessional and lacked integrity. All he did during the interview was to go through my resume and question if i had really been in the role i had mentioned in my resume. He says"if i verified you were really at XYZ and did what you mentioned in your resume" would that be true? Then he goes on to gather intelligence on deals i have been winning and working on in the public sector and frowns a frustration in his attitude. As a complying interviewee, at a point, i thought he was really taking one of those stress interviews so i answered him with as calmness and patience as i could. But he would not stop!!! i was really feeling to call this off and say i DO NOT WANT TO WORK FOR EY. but i did not i resisted. I played my part. He could really not tell me much about what work is done by his division within EY. All he was trying to do now was gain intelligence on my deals and relationships - so UNPROFESSIONAL.
    I want to mention here with the kind of experience i had i would never ever work or recommend anyone to work for this sort of employer. This is so unAustralian and inhuman. MY experience was demeaning and claustrophobic at best. I really never wanted to enter that building ever.
    What i made out of this is - I would end up working for a partner, who would suck up all profits, make anyone working for them work unrealistic long hours to build up their profits and zero family life. Currently i give 18 hours a day with extended travel internationally for my work. But i never feel that i am neglected and disrespected. This person made me feel so. It was the worst ever experience of my life. I would strongly suggest considering that the way you are treated is how you would treat your clients and employees. All corporate values and ethics do not make sense if this is how it is being followed.
    Interestingly - Most likely based on compensation benchmarking information, i probably make more money that him but i never applied for the job to increase my salary..it was the culture and ethics that i read about EY that i applied for and the awesome work they have been doing over more than a century. I never expected this.
