I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

Interview Details – Being the Big 4 they were difficult to have an opportunity to speak to at social events, but well worth it when you met their professionals. They were welcoming to hearing about your professional experiences and goals. Highly competitive hiring process, either you have a 3.5 GPA + or a huge track list of extra curricula's to make you stand out.

Interview Question – Most difficult question was regarding my past work experience and how I would enhance the A/P system. Did not see that coming as it was past experience, and not current.   Answer Question

Audit Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in January 2013.

Interview Details – Two rounds of interviews. On campus, then office interview. On campus was very relaxed and conversational. I was actually surprised with how casual the manager was. He was even a little inappropriate or insensitive at times with the language he used. Office interview was again casual. They did most of the talking which surprised me. Two managers and a partner.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were conversational, not too much behavioral at all. I would have to say that the toughest part was just try to get a word in to sell myself. It was definietly much more difficult than when interviewing with other firms. If you can't sell yourself then the interview is pretty much shot. Additionally ice breakers when you walk in help a ton. I did not due that in these interviews and I noticed it made a huge impact at other firms.   Answer Question

Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in May 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process came out of campus recruting. The night before we were taken out to dinner to meet the partners and other employees at PwC. The next morning we had the first interview which was basically just to see if you could carry on a conversation and not just be about the debits and credits. The questions were the typical tell me about yourself and some basic questions off of the resume. Overall it was very easy and most of the time we did not even talk about work or accounting.

Interview Question – There really was no difficuly questions, some people would be uncomfortable if they asked about what other firms you're interviewing for but I chose to be honest and up front with them.   Answer Question
