Risk Assurance Intern Interview

Risk Assurance Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – First round interview was with an Assurance manager on campus (I applied for the risk assurance internship). Very informal. Interviewer asked questions about classes - most difficult class I had taken, favorite, etc. Also walked through my resume and asked questions about past work experience. Also asked why I was interested in working for PWC. Very laid back interview. Nothing was difficult or unexpected.

Interview Question – There were not any difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Forensic Advisory Intern Interview

Forensic Advisory Intern
New York, NY

I applied through college or university - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details – I've networked with the recruiter prior to applying. Then, I submitted my application online through my university's career services website, then had a campus interview, then went to new york for the second round interview where I interviewed with 3 people. They told me they would let me know in a week but I found out a couple days later.

Interview Question – There was a case study that involved a fictitious financial services firm. But the information was given to me a day in advance and I could prepare. They didn't give you the questions ahead of time though. So one interview was on the case study and the other two were nontechnical, personality questions. No real surprises.   Answer Question

Interview Details – All behavioral. They want to get to know you as well as give you a chance to get to know them. Great experience. My only complaint would be that they don't like to consider you for other openings other than what you are applying for.
