    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.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school

    Honestly, I do not know why they don't tell applicants that they have been removed from the selection process. It is so rude not to let me know whether I am not in the running for it. I had to send a follow up email because I didn't hear anything back.

    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.

    Night before dinner, very nice and laid-back. We asked our interviewer questions about her line of work in the beginning, but towards the end it was a little more fun oriented and personal. We got to know each other a little better before the actual interview.

All interview were 2-3 business days a part.

    I haven't yet had a response and its been exactly one week since my partner interview. Has anyone received an offer after a week or so? Or how soon did you receive your offer? I heard I did very well and was one of 2 final candidates.
