Assurance Intern Interview

Assurance Intern
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details – Performed one phone interview followed by an in-office interview with three different managers within the department. Questions asked were fairly straightforward and focused on behavioral questions from experiences listed on your resume. Ample time left after questioning to ask your own questions.

Interview Details – All behavioral. They want to get to know you as well as give you a chance to get to know them. Great experience. My only complaint would be that they don't like to consider you for other openings other than what you are applying for.

Assurance Intern Interview

Assurance Intern
Florham Park, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details – Initially applied through my school's career services website, and was invited for an on-campus interview shortly after. The interview was pretty conversational. I was only asked two questions directly, and they were both easy ones. The partner I interviewed with was most interested in hearing me talk about my resume directly rather than answering behavioral questions. About a week after my campus interview I received a call from the recruiter inviting me to Superday.

Interview Question – Only two questions, rest of interview was conversation. 1. Tell me about a time when someone in your team was not pulling their weight, and how did you deal with it.
2. Tell me about a time you were not able to meet a deadline.
