Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in July 2015.

Interview

Pretty standard interview, an HR person who welcomes you telling you about all of the opportunities at pwc and three interviewers, a host who gives you a tour and takes you out to lunch. Definitely be prepared to talk about current events, behavioral questions your resume, and why you are interested in pwc. The interview wasn't as bad as i expected.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    It was an all behaviour questions based interview. You have to think about what challenges you confronted with in the past, and how you dealt with them eventually. There weren't much time for you to think about it. Remember to give specific, positive and real examples and use the "STAR" model. ]

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The interview was a very good mix of personal questions and behavioral based questions. I was interviewed by a partner. Topics ranged from my family background, golf, and sports, to career goals, how I think I would fit in with the firm, and my qualifications. Auditing involves a good understanding of financial accounting, along with good social skills to interact with the client and audit team. If a candidate can show they have good grades, good work history, and extracurricular activities they should feel comfortable entering an interview room for this type of job. I would prepare for this type of interview like any other. Practice (or brush up on) basic behavioral based interview questions, and make sure you can show your accounting knowledge if asked a technical question. Otherwise relax and be sociable to let your true personality show in the interview.
