Advisory Associate Interview

Advisory Associate
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2011.

Interview Details – The first round consisted of 2-30 min interviews on campus. It was mostly behavioral with two managers typically from the office you are applying to. It is important to let them know what specific area you are interested in even if you decide to change later because they typically recruit by different service areas. I was interviewing for a Technology position but told them I was interested in M&A and then got switched and put into that for the 2nd round.

2nd round was a lunch followed by two hr long interviews with managers and principals within the specific area for which you are applying. Again it was pretty much behavioral and resume stuff. One of them asked me a mini case question but nothing like typical cases and it was more like a discussion. It ends with a panel discussion so you can ask any questions you have left.

They told us, we will hear back withing a week so still waiting to hear back.

Very Easy Interview

Summer Leadership Adventure Interview

Summer Leadership Adventure
Athens, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in February 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online on PwC's website and had to fill out a lengthy and detailed profile and also had to submit a resume through my University's career website. I was offered an interview and accepted and I am currently waiting to hear back from them. They said it would be early to mid-April for them to make selections and notify us. This is because they are interviewing for both the local and national programs and they have to wait all of the interviews to be conducted at every university they interview at so they can first select the participants to the national program. Had a very pleasant and down to earth interviewer that made it an enjoyable experience. My interview was more about the interviewer getting to know my personality than it was any technical skills or situational responses. Great experience!

Transfer Pricing Interview

Transfer Pricing
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in February 2008.

Interview Details – I was invited to interview for the Transfer Pricing Associate position. I interviewed with several people (one on one) and was in the office for approximately 5 hours. The interview consists of basic interview questions. No technical questions were asked because they really don't expect people to know too much about transfer pricing. It was a pleasant experience overall and everyone was friendly and personable.

Leadership Program Interview

Leadership Program
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in May 2009.

Interview Details – I went into the room, and there was the recruiter making small talk with the other that were waiting. I believe there were 18 students that were getting an interview for this position, and there were less than 5 position open for the whole southeast region. Once I got into the room, I had met the partner that was interviewing me. She went through my resume and would ask me to clarify things. After that, she asked ONE behavioral question, and another question on "What do you like to do outside of academics?", and if I had any questions. The interview seemed like it was fine (not awesome), but I didn't get a call back. It is VERY competitive.
