Interview Details – Meeting my interviewer during the pre-interview dinner was a great experience. Everybody was extremely easy to talk to and start conversations with, which automatically made it very easy for me to feel comfortable about my interview and the people I would meet. The people are honest about their work experience and diverse in their knowledge and skills.
Interview Question – My interview was pretty much a conversation. I was asked about my prior work experience, but other than that, the interviewer and I exchanged a couple of funny stories from our personal lives. The key is to ask questions and maintain your attention and curiosity throughout the interview. Answer Question

Interview Details – The campus recruiter and on-campus presenters were very friendly and offered a lot of information and advice for the interview/hiring process. They were more than eager to talk to all candidates. Interviewers look for unique qualities in a candidate's resume. The actual interview felt more like a conversation than an exchange of questions and answers.
Interview Question – Describe a weakness of yours and how you would cope with it. Answer Question

Interview Details –
You apply for a position through the campus representative. You submit your resume through your school's career website and through the PWC career website also. If you get chosen, your first round interview is on campus. They usually have a mid level to senior manager interview. They rarely have associates interviewing you.
The interviewer I interviewed with was very laid back. Some are more formal. However, they first go through your resume with you and you talk about some of your work experiences and leadership experiences. He asked me about my extra-circular activities as well. Then he asked why I want to get into public accounting. Apparently, they are supposed to ask you some behavioral questions about how well you work on a team and ask you about some situations when you worked on a team. But during my interview, he didn't really ask me those things. I wasn't sure why but we did spend a lot of time on my resume so maybe that's why. And then we ended with me asking him two questions.
Their second round interview is an office visit. You should indicate your location choice during the interview. You can choose locations that aren't near your school. And if you get chosen for a second round interview, you interview at that office location that you choose.
Interview Question – Why do you want get into public accounting? Answer Question

Interview Details –
I recieved my first interview at a conference. It was with an HR manager, she was very friendly and personable. She told me about her history with the firm, then looked over my resume and asked questions about working as group or team and leadership experience.
When I went to the New York superday the group of us got to listen and ask questions to a panel of employees then had 3, 1 on 1 interviews and ended the day with lunch. Everyone was helpful and answered all the questions I had. From my impression it's a very competative atmosphere but everyone seems to genuinely enjoy working for the company.
My advice would be to research the company, practice interview questions, and have questions of your own to ask. Also try and show through your answers that you can lead, work well as a team, and are highly motivated.

Interview Details – Went to Meet the Firms where I met some associates as well as the partner. Had a pre-interview dinner at a very nice restaurant downtown which was very fun and memorable. Had an on-campus interview with senior manager in November who happened to be an alumni. She was really easy going and fun to talk to. No serious questions about job/school activities, mostly went over what happened at socials and dinner as well as old memories about going to school. Received invite to office visit 2 weeks later for January visit. They paid for hotel room for the night before office visit which included a goodies bag. Office visit was not very intense but made me quite nervous. Had two 1:1 interview, one with senior manager and HR manager. Senior manager asked more behavioral questions where as HR manager asked about school and career plans. Then went to networking activity, lunch, and tour of downtown.

I submitted my resume on the university career website and got an on campus interview. My interviewer was a HR person and the interview was pretty relaxing, with questions like, tell me a little bit about yourself, where do you see yourself in 10 years, why do you think you are the right fit for our firm, how do you divide your time between study and campus activities, etc...no surprises.
After about 2 weeks they contacted me through email for an office visit. The office visit consisted of a lunch with the current employees and other candidates, a manager interview, a HR interview, and a partner interview. It was kind of intense cause it was one right after another with no break. No technical questions...the most technical one I got was, tell me about the financial news you are following lately. Other than that, mostly personality and experience based questions.
