    I'm still waiting for my email with the link to book it. I emailed them straight after the webinar and I double checked it was the right email I sent it to. I'm not sure if my email has just been missed or if it's just because they're busy right now. I think I'm going to call the recruitment hotline if I still haven't got an email by Tuesday.
    Have they emailed you yet?

    Don't bother. When I called up they told me this is all part of the 'normal recruitment process' and I should hear from them soon.

    One thing I learnt from going through all these processes earlier this year is that it just takes a shitload of time and calling/emailing does nothing, they just repeat the same excuse to make you happy

    I was in contact with them also. I sat the first online test. No feedback after a three weeks. Contacted them advised had passed and was emailed phase 2 test to sit as passed phase 1.Never received email advising of this nor the link to sit phase 2 this was supposed to be sent after 3 days of sitting first test. Which was In early September. Still no email or link received after contacting them. The said it would be sent the following day. Still waiting as of this week.

    I can understand they have large volumes of applicants. In my opinion you need to keep chasing them up. Which I will be doing.


    Any information of what phase 2 testing is?

    I actually did the phone interview a few months ago for the EY Skills Academy (which fastracks you to the assessment centre for the school leaver programme). If you need any tips for the interview then I'd be happy to help because as you probably know their interviews are strengths based unlike the other Big 4 😅
    I have my assessment centre next week so just preparing for that atm!😱

    i am interested in applying for apprenticeship in the big 4, but all the reviews talk about the job so negatively, and keep on saying run as fast as you can? what makes you guys want to do the apprenticeship, apparently jobs in audit...(i dont exactly know what it is or how to use the word) are like people basically just dont like you? you find errors in bills n stuff?

    Are EY really slow in getting back to candidates? I get that they will be flooded with applications but now getting frustrated with their lack - or better words no response on my application, it has now been over a month since I took first test, have been advised that I passed the first test via email after chasing up and second test would be sent to me the next day. Again, no action taken by EY to send email with test link to complete as promised by them via email.

    Is anyone in the same position, waiting on emails to be sent after chasing up?

    Not getting anywhere with my application, spent ages on telephone trying to get my application resolved. Its seems for some reason my application has stalled and they cannot get the workflow to work or kickstart again. Got another email last week with a link to complete phase two of the numerical reasoning test. And again, can't access the link. Access Denied. I have sent another email to EY, and will follow up with a call tomorrow, my application if not completed by tomorrow at midnight will be withdrawn.

    I feel really disappointed that I might not get through to the next stage, that by no means is my fault . If I don't pass test or fail at interview stage that's fine thats down to me but this is a EY error and its me who is being let down and possibly missing out of a job opportunity.

    EY Service centre - the staff try and help but i feel it is a hit or miss who you get and everyone that i have got have failed so far in trying to resolve my problem. No one want to take ownership.

    Is there anyone out there who may be in the same situation?

    Otherwise, good luck to everyone.
