    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EY.

    Interview

    It was a group interview of 5 interviewees to 2 interviewers. When an interviewer asked a question, it is up to whomever to answer. However, should one not take initiative in answering, the interviewer would make sure to direct questions at the person. Seemed like showing initiation is also a key aspect.

    • Tell me about yourself is the first question. As it was group interview of 5 interviewees to 2 interviewers, everyone took turns in sharing the strengths and weaknesses. There were no scenario based questions asked. There was only one accounting question at the end of the interview.   Answer Question
