    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend (who was a Manager) who submitted my resume. I was contacted by an HR leader who held the first screening over the phone. Within a day, I was told that they are interested in me coming in for a series of office interviews, which would take about 3 hours. The first interview was with a managing director who mostly read my resume and said that my skills were mostly what they needed. The second interview was with a director who asked more difficult questions related to my audit experience. The third interview was with a senior partner who asked softball questions. The fourth interview was with an HR staffer who asked standard recruiting questions and confirmed my previous employers. After a week, I was asked to perform a security screening over the phone with PwC's security director. The next day I was offered the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in June 2008.

    Interview

    After having a colleague refer me to an open position, PWC indicated that they weren't hiring at that time. About a month later I was asked to interview for an Associate position within their Government Affairs practice group. The group was unique to PWC in the sense that they focused more on the legislative side of the accounting/financial world. The position was in support of two managers, one senior manager, and one vice president, all whom I interviewed with. Overall, the culture of PWC is very strong, and more lively than I expected for what many consider a dull accounting firm. PWC has a lot of government consulting contracts to make gov't work more efficiently. I was impressed by the team, though the role was more support than the legislative experience I had.

    Interview Questions

    • We currently use new media like webcasts to explain legislation that affects the accounting world. These are very poorly attended. How would you create more interest?   Answer Question
