Risk Assurance Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through college or university - interviewed at PwC in September 2011.

Interview Details – First round interview was based on school since my process was on campus. They arranged a pre-night reception to see if you are a good fit socially and the next day comes with the interview. The interview was mostly behaviour but my interviewer did ask me about risk control. Be prepared if you are interested in the position.

The interviewer was the Director in the area and asked basically behavioral questions trying to gauge if my experience was relevant in the area. Some questions were: Why PwC, How do you fit in PwC, Why this specific Practice.

Intern Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – I was recommended to PwC and a campus recruiter contacted me. I had one behavioral interview with HR and one behavioral interview with a senior employee. After getting approved by both interviewers, I was flown to the PwC office to have two behavioral interviews and one case study interview. I enjoyed the overall process and everyone was extremely friendly.

Interview Question – My most difficult question was in the case study interview. I was asked about an industry that I am not planning on working in and I did not have an answer.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – PwC was having a local meet and greet event, so I decided to go. When I got there, I met with a couple of recruiters, one who I had a long conversation with. At the end, she gave me her contact and told me she would contact me in the event of an interview opening (the next day). I emailed her thanking her for her time, and she responded with good news about an interview opening.

Interview Question – Nothing tricky, just went over my resume--it was a behavioral interview.   Answer Question

Management/Risk Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at PwC

Interview Details – The interview was primarily behavioral questions. Some background on my coursework and the standard "walk me through your resume" question. There were several scenario questions: "tell me about a time you X." It seemed like the big driver here was fit: could the candidate both do the work and have the right attitude? Hit those key points and you should be fine.

Interview Question – Tell me what class you have enjoyed the least.   Answer Question

Advisory Associate Interview

Advisory Associate
Miami, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – The night before the first interview there was a dinner to get to know other interviewees and all interviewers. It wasnt mandatory but its definitely a good opportunity to get familiar with the person who will be interviewing you.

First interview was on campus by a partner. Fairly easy interview, spoke about why you would be a good fit and past experiences.

The second interview was at the desired office. I was interviewed by 3 different people, the first was similar to the interview with the partner, we spoke about past experience, why that office etc. The second interview was more of a informatory session, where the individual spoke of the department, responsibilities etc. The third was a technical interview since I applied for an ITPA position.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question had to do with data centers...cant quite remember the question.   Answer Question
