Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

Interview

It was a normal interview with tough questions, which makes sense they are highly selective. Be prepared for tough questions from substantial members of the organization. A good way to prepare would be to think of the hardest questions that they could ask and then to make sure that you have answers to them.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied through college recruitment. GPA of 3.5+ was required in order to submit application. Was contacted by recruiter for interview at school. Somewhat informal interview probably due to the fact that it's only a student intern position. No news ever since the interview. Tried to follow up with recruiter but to no avil.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard interview. Recruiter was just doing a run though the resume.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Went through university recruiting. Dinner beforehand, interview the next day. Questions were mostly standard with a few that I hadn't considered. I interviewed specifically within CIPS/TICE. Even though I reviewed before the interview I completely blanked on which was which during the interview. It didn't come up, but I would have liked to have touched on it. One interview was completely behaviorials, the other was personality/fit, however my interviewer asked one question and then talked at me the following 45 mins.

    Interview

    There was a pre interview dinner first. Then, there was the on-campus interview the next morning. All in all, the whole process was nothing too special. As for the interview itself, it was pretty conversational and relaxed. They didn't grill me with weird behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Just know the usual "why accounting?" and "why audit/tax/risk assurance?"   Answer Question

    Interview

    First round interview was just behavioral - 30 minutes. Difficult questions. Interviewer seemed like he did not care what I was talking about. This was from the Chicago office. Student from Northwestern. They took 20 for first round interviews out of 230 resumes.

    Interview

    Campus interview and behavior question. First time to interview with big four. Everything is hard in the beginning. Need more time to prepare. You should know why you want to do this job. Show some passion. That's the key

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC in September 2014.

    Interview

    Only four behavior questions. Nothing unexpected. Interviewer was nice. THere was a reception to meet the employer before the interview. So felt really relaxed that day.....After two weeks got the invitation for on-site interview.

    Interview

    I was interviewed as a college recruiting intern. Honestly, I don't remember it much as I was 15 and I only did it because my family works there. It was a good experience but I don't want to ever work in corporate American ever again.
