Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC in July 2015.

Interview

Applied through a company referral. First round was a phone interview with a manager. Second round was three separate 30 minute interviews with a senior associate, director, and partner. All questions were behavioral. Very friendly environment. Just be prepared to talk a lot and have a lot of good examples to draw back on.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PwC (Albany, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was first invited to an on campus interview. After about a week, I was invited to an office visit. Office visit involves pre-interview dinner and a half day interview with lunch. The final round interview consists of three back-back-back interviews with two directors and a partner. Two directors both asked behavioral questions and the partner was just conversational interview.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Manager then in-office interviews (3 interviews, 30 mins each). They only hire accounting majors (I was a finance major). Good experience and practice. Interviewers are very nice but make sure to practice and study up beforehand.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Campus interview. Chatty interviewer. Didn't stop to ask any questions but keeps talking about his team and felt like that he's not expecting no answer. One asian girl got hired for internship but she was fired within trail period after full-time started. He was looking for sheep, should've zipped and listened and nodded like that girl.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied online on my school's career website. Got an on campus interview about a week later. Interviewed with a director in risk assurance. Half an hour. He was a lot more technical than expected since other interviews I had seemed more conversational. Wasn't the friendliest guy, not typical of other people I met from PWC.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through my university's online recruiting system. After approximately one week, PwC emailed me about interviewing on campus. My on campus interview was a one-on-one interview with an assurance director. The interview was laidback, she talked about the role she served within the firm, what my responsibilities would be as an associate, and asked me a few behavioral questions. Unfortunately, I did not receive a second round interview; however, it was a decent interviewing experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were behavioral - - Tell me about a type you worked on a group project and one of the members was not doing their portion of the work, how did you and the rest of the group address and resolve this issue?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First an hour long phone interview because I was not on campus during the 1-1 interviews. I then moved on the final round, which involved going to the Boston office for a few more interviews: one with a partner, the two others with managers. They never got back to me after that.
