    Senior Associate - Advisory Interview

    Interview Details

    Had a very unprofessional exchange with the recruiter who contacted me out of the blue, set up and blew off TWO phone screenings with me in a row coming up with a last minute weird excuse at the last moment, and then ultimately, after I reached out to him to follow up, he told me that I was not qualified for the job. It's like OK... Well then why did you reach out to me in the first place??? They seem pretty disorganized and also rude.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consisted of a phone screening then invitation to an on site "super day". This day had 3 different interviews as well as a corporate presentation. Overall, you will interview with typically a manager, managing director, and partner, but it could differ depending on staffing. Really pleasant people-- both the interviewers and your fellow interviewees. Had a great experience.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The first round of interviews was with one partner and this part was your standard Q&A session. The second round of interviews is difficult because it was a full day at one of their office locations, interviewed with 5-7 different partners and managers. The hard part is staying energetic and engaged. The second round of interviews is where I received behavioral and technical type questions by a few interviewers.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then was contacted by a recruiter (in a different location, my school did not have a recruiting program). For some reasons, I could not contact the recruiter after the process (invalid email address and non-working phone number) and I just never heard back from her/the company.

    Risk Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through employee referral. Went into the Boston office for an interview with a partner, manager, and senior associate. The interview experience was about a half day from 9:00 to 2:00. Breakfast and a presentation in the morning, short tour, and then 3 half hour interviews. After that all of the candidates went to lunch with the hosts. Over all not a bad experience. I still haven't received an offer though and my interview was yesterday. So my hope is fading.

    Interview Details

    It was an on campus interview. I applied online through my campus website. The interview llasted 30 mins and it was more of a conversation than a formal interview. It seemed they were just trying to get to know you more than anything else. Just be yourself and make sure to ask questions at the end.

    Summer Assurance Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    It was a about 40 minutes long interview. I briefly introduced about myself. I answered why I want to be an actuary, which sector I want to get involved, why I choose PWC. As these were typical questions, I had no difficulty to answer the questions. After that, there were about 5 behavior questions about leadership. Although I didn't have enough concrete stories, the questions were not that picky. Moreover, He asked one recent issue on the insurance industry. As it was my first interview, I was very nervous. But, as I remember, the interviewer was nice.
