The hiring recruitment is so strange because had an interview on May 2014 but the job will start on Apr 2015. Also, you need to choose the way of interview between campus way and experienced way.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    It's an on campus recruiting process. The company had several info session and networking event on campus and students drop their resume through school's online system. Before the interview, there was a pre-interview reception held by PWC where candidates met and talked people from PWC and their interviewer. The interview took about half an our and includes some behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Generally tell me about yourself. I didn't encounter questions like why PWC or why tax questions.
      Another one is what do you do in your spare time?
      Tell me a situation where you feel pressure from an ethical issue? Also some other behavioral questions. I think the interviewer has a list.
      Then I asked the questions I prepared to the interviewer. Preparing more questions is quite recommended.

    I applied online - interviewed at PwC in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with an HR rep who was really nice. We chatted for about 45 minutes and he told me I was his number one candidate and set up an in person for the following week. I met with two a manager and the person I would be replacing for lunch. They took me to a nice restaurant near by and we talked and chatted about the position. Mostly them informing me on what the position consisted of. I then had 4, 30 minute interviews with various managers and a partner. They were all really nice and didn't ask me anything too difficult. I felt it went extremely well. A few days later they told me that it was down to me and one other person and they wanted to have one more phone interview to make a decision. They wanted to know my background a little more and see how it applied to the position and asked me a difficult question I stumbled over a little. I didn't get the job but they liked me and said they will keep in mind. I am currently in the process of interviewing for a different position with them.
