    Advisory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I was really surprised--both interviews went really well but then they just fell off the face of the earth. I was really surprised that I never even got the courtesy of a final email/follow up call. I understand that the interview and selection process can be an arduous one however I think I deserved the courtesy of a follow up.

    Interview Questions
    • I was really surprised by how unstructured the interviews were. I found that I had to ask questions in order to get a sense of the job as both parties had little to share.   Answer Question

    Forensic Accounting Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied through school jobs portal. Was emailed that I had been accepted and had a 1-on-1 interview scheduled on campus. Campus interview went well and was invited to attend a Superday at their Manhattan office. Interviewed by two senior associates, one focused on behavioral questions while the other asked about a case study that was provided the night before the Superday. Lastly interviewed by partner, mostly behavioral, then was taken to lunch by junior associates.

    Interview Questions
    • The case study they gave to us candidates was the trickiest part of the whole interview process. Candidates only had a night to prepare and we were asked to prepare a presentation on our findings during the Superday and it was a pretty complex forensic accounting problem. They told us it was the first time they tried something like it and it tripped me up.   Answer Question

    Software Senior Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at PwC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call after about 3 weeks from the recruiter. This was general screening and next round was scheduled with Director.
    Interview with Director lasted for almost an hour and next round was scheduled with team. They came in groups and complete interview lasted for almost 4.5 hours. Mostly concentrated on my previous experience and how to react in various situations. Interviewers seems pretty satisfied.
    At the end HR told me they will get back after a week.

    I followed up after 2 weeks and HR said they will let me know the next day. Nothing until 3 weeks, I followed again with the HR, who then said that they are still looking for a candidate with CLOSER experience to the requirements.

    I thought this could have been known by having a closer look at my resume. Again the interviewers seemed to be pretty good and friendly, but recruiter was immature and could not answer even the simple questions regarding the company policies.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed as a college recruiting intern. Honestly, I don't remember it much as I was 15 and I only did it because my family works there. It was a good experience but I don't want to ever work in corporate American ever again.

    Tax Interview

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I had a video interview with a senior manager. The questions asked were not that difficult though, in retrospect, my answers could have been better worded. The interviewer was very friendly and the atmosphere was relatively comfortable. Overall, the interview felt more casual than expected. However, there was no invitation for an office interview.

    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at PwC in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was simple and straightforward. Basic questions about past experiences/resume, etc. Some basic behavioral questions. No case questions or anything tricky. However, the interviewer really liked the candidate before me, and was quite rude to me. He messed up my name three times in the interview (I have a very common name, he just did not put in the effort to remember it) and was overall quite rude. This doesn't seem like a company where people are happy working.
