    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college. First round was behavioral on campus, and the final round was at their office and included 2 behavioral and one case interview. My case was to do with implementing AML software for a financial services company. The final rounds were on a Friday and I received the offer via a phone call the following day. Overall process went really really well. Everybody at PwC is genuinely nice, and they are more than willing to help.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I'd talked to a recruiter at a career fair and was told the risk assurance internship would be a good fit because I had a background in computers. I had one interview at my school. The interview was mainly behavioral questions. Nothing to hard. Then I was able to ask my own questions. The second round of interviews was at the Denver office where I meet with more people and had a few different interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus recruitment, graduate program with a 3.6 GPA. Prior to your first round interview, there will be a reception. This is pretty casual, use the opportunity to ask questions and introduce yourself to the recruiter and Associates/Partners as they may interview you the next day. 1st round is a simple behavioral interview, know why you want to work for Pwc, explain your background, and ask questions. Most importantly be excited and show you are eager to learn and have something to add to the firm.
    Final round interviews in NYC are a superday, two 30 min behavioral and one case interview. You will most likely meet with a Manager, Senior Associate, and finally a Partner. You're given the case two days in advance so you can prepare, and upon arrival are given 45 min to prepare a presentation on hard copies of powerpoint slides, and answer additional questions given to you upon arrival- this is nothing to be worried about! Some people who prepped for months doing case studies did not get an offer- I had no prior case interview experience except from a class the previous fall semester. I read some of Case and Point and watched Victor Cheng's youtube videos. You will simply present your slides to a Manager or Senior Assoc.
    I suggest using the STAR method for all behavioral questions.
    There will be A LOT of time for you to ask questions, so DO YOUR RESEARCH!!
    And- do not forget to send thank you emails to EVERYONE you met with before the end of the day.
    I had my final round interview on a Friday, the Partner called me on a Saturday to offer me the position.

    PwC Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straightforward and I was kept informed along the way. Everyone that I met was very intelligent, funny and ambitious, which reflects very well on the company. I would say PwC has some of the best people. They are changing some of their interview practices in order to align more with their company values, such as asking questions regarding technical aptitude, global perspective, etc. but if you are interested in accounting nothing should come as a surprise. I received an offer on the day of my 2nd round interview, but declined because accounting was not my #1 career choice.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    First they asked you to walk through your resume. Just the basic stuffs, things that you have done, your achievements, etc. Next, they asked you specific questions relating to the PWC assessment framework. It is more of a situational-based type of question. Lastly, they will set aside some time for you to ask questions about the company or your interviewer.

    Cybersecurity Advisory Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    After PwC selects your resume they invited me to an on campus interview. There was a reception the night before the interview. It was fun. You get to meet people from different departments and the managers (your interviewers). Definitely nothing to stress about. No need to prepare serious work related questions, just be yourself and get to know the team. The on campus interview was conversational. They test you a little bit on what you know about the industry. As long as you know the big picture you should be fine. Few days after they notify you if you make it to the final round at the site. Agenda at the site include 45 min prep time for case interview, one hour jeopardy (where you will learn more about the firm, they are not testing you and it's not part of the decision process), two behavioral interviews and one case interview. Behavioral interviews did not have "tell me about a time.. " type questions, only resume related stuff. The case was fun. They try to throw you off a little bit, but prepared some stuff to talk about it should be fine. Most enjoyable onsite interview so far!
