Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2013.

Interview Details

There were 3 interviews before I was offered the position. The first one was more of just a conversation with a 2nd year assurance staff employee. The 2nd interview was with the recruiter where I was asked more about my involvement and past experience. The 3rd interview was with a partner and it felt more like a conversation to make sure that he liked me more than to interview more.

    Started with first round on-campus and was invited for a second round in NY. The second round was very laid-back and involved a quick presentation about the company, panel discussion and three interviews by managers/partners.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    One on campus interview, very basic questions on resume and some behavioral questions. One month later on--site. One partner and two manager 1:1 interviews. Also very basic questions on resume and a little bit technical questions. Didn't get the offer because I'm not an accounting major. The major reason should be I didn't nicely justify why they should hire me as assurance.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview lasting 45 minutes, just a general behavioral interview, more concerned with fitting into the culture then anything technical. Week passed, received a call-back to come and interview at their offices. HR gave a 45 minute presentation to start the day on company information, benefits, etc. ; Followed by 2 behavioral interviews with managers, they had assigned you a member of the staff level to escort you around and tour the offices, lunch was also provided; All in all a very nice interview, the people are very nice and welcoming, Call came 2 weeks after the interview.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interview. Was invited for an interview 4 days after having done the numerical test. Multiple emails were sent with links for preparation. My interview was 20 minutes long as it is for an internship. I was interviewed by someone from HR and she was really nice and friendly. I got an email the same day telling me the outcome of my interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    PWC was fairly fast to arrange the telephone interview since I applied. Questions are pretty standard: competency, your qualifications and knowledge of qualifications you would be studying towards. Overall, the phone interview took about 35-40 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • I would not say any question was particularly unexpected   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    First round interviews were telephone based. The main questions were compentancy based. Other questions include why PWC, why assurance, what do you know about other service lines, what company do you admire and what would you advise them, and tell us about the ACA.

    It's probably best to pre-prepare questions and answers for the telephone interview well in advance.
