Audit Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

The interviewer was extremely nice and the questions they asked were more getting to know me rather than behavioral or standard interview questions.

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in February 2010.

Interview Details – A senior manager and a senior consultant conducted the interview. The senior manager had a evaluation form from HR department. All were behavior questions. There is only one question is about my technical background. As they were hiring banking IT auditor, they need people with IT and banking system knowledge.

Interview Question – As a software engineer in Oracle, why you want to join PwC?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Considering the working environment of big 4 in China.
