Report answer

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.

I applied in January and was contacted by HR in May. The interview process took about a month but then they came back and said they didn't have approval to hire. I was then contacted two months later with an offer. If the hiring process goes through HR it can take a long time. If management bypasses the internal hiring process through taking referrals then the process is much quicker.
