    Interview Details

    I applied through on campus recruiting and received a first round interview. The first round was behavioral, they asked questions about leadership, fit etc. After the first round, they invited me to a final round interview in the nearest major office. They final round consisted of three back-to-back interviews, two behavioral and one case. For the case, they sent us a brief a few days before, and we had to prepare a 20 minute presentation once we got to the office on how to address the client's needs.

    Interview on campus and then interviewed at the office with three separate people. All were based around my resume and their own generic questions. It was nice and got to meet a lot of managers and a few partners who interviewed me.

    Interview Details

    Screened at the campus level; completed a campus interview with a partner - 70% of candidates were cut at this phase; I was expecting further cuts at the office visit, but we all received offers at the visit. This was for a smaller (<150 employees in tax, assurance, and advisory combined) office in a "desirable" city

    Fixed Term Executive Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume and received an email request to schedule a phone interview the following week. After the phone interview I was sent a series of Microsoft tests to take at home. 2 days later I received an email inviting me to interview with 2 people. Interview was formal, lots of "what if" "what would you" kind of questions. That evening I received another email requesting I meet with a 3 person the following day. 3 rd interview was more of a "getting to know" the company and expectations. I was called 2 days later and offered the job. I declined the offer as I had never met the partner whom I would be working for and was told that I wouldn't meet him/her until I started. PwC is going through some changes with their administrative staff and I didn't feel comfortable accepting a position having never met the partner and with the possibility that my position would end after the 1 year contract. These Fixed Term positions are just that, fixed term and should probably be called long term temp. Unless you are unemployed and simply need to work I would not suggest applying.

    Reasons for Declining

    Wasn't given the opportunity to meet with who I would be working for. I was all on board with the whole fixed term until I received an offer and when I asked to meet the partner first and was told no, I realized regardless of what they tell you about what "fixed term" means, it is simply just a Temp position to fill open positions until the powers to be make a decision on the direction of their administrative positions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I had two rounds of interviews with PwC. The first-round was conducted on campus and was strictly conversational and going over my resume. My second-round was the office visit. We had a presentation about the firm then had three 30 minute interviews. The interviews were pretty much strictly behavioral - each of my interviewers read "tell me about a time when..." questions off of a piece of paper based on the PwC professional framework. Make sure you have lots (I'd say at least 8) of examples and experiences that you can use to fit the behavioral questions, as some of the questions got repetitive. The questions themselves were not difficult - it's just a matter of having experiences that you can relate back to them.
