It was a fairly long process from applying to day 1 of training - about 2 months. I was contacted by the recruiter within a week, had my phone interview within a couple days, but then had to wait for 2 weeks for my in-person interview. I did hear back within a week of the interview with a job offer, but had to wait another month for training to start. It was a new program at EY though, so they were waiting to accommodate a whole training class.

Workplace culture is highly competitive. Expect to work extremely long hours. They value employees who are willing to figure things out on their own with little to no training.
Performance reviews are not always based upon quality or quantity of work done, but on how much Partners and clients like you.
