Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2015.

Interview

I was selected to participate in the Elevate program for my city. The Elevate program was a 2 day summer leadership conference where they bring in about 30+ students to learn more about the company. They also planned various social and philanthropic activities. On the second day, each students had (2) behavioral interviews with a partner and a manager in the chosen service line. Do not be intimidated by the word behavioral. It was very conversational almost as if you're talking to an advisor/counselor on your career goals and aspirations. For each interview, they began asking basic questions such as read me through your resume, tell me more about your involvement in this club, etc. The rest of the time was situational questions such as Tell me how you approach working in a team, what position do you tend to take, how do you deal with a teammate not doing their part, etc. If you go in with a mentality of preparedness and confidence about yourself, the interview goes by real fast! Be genuine and actually listen to what they have to say about themselves. Often times, more questions arise as your conversation carries on. That way, questions you ask become more genuine and catered to them. Overall, all interviews I've had with PwC is very laid-back, conversation and stress-free.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (San Diego, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Standard interview, however it was with a partner so it was a little intimidating. The partner wanted to know why I am interested in public accounting and what type influence accounting firms have on the economy. Overall it was a good experience and I hope to have another chance this year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through school's website in LA and indicated that I wanted to work in San Francisco. After on campus interview, was contacted to schedule an in house and they flew me out shortly after. In house interviews consisted of 3 sessions 30min each. They were not typical easy Big 4 interviews, these were structured. Each interviewer had to ask his own questions that were given to him, so each interview was completely different from the last.

    Interview

    Each of us got a list of interviewers during the Superday. I had four interviewers. Each interviewed for half an hour. No technical questions, but there are lots of behavioral questions, especially on teamwork. So be prepared and ask wise questions. Most of us get our results in two days. All the interviewers are very friendly so there's no need to be nervous.

    Interview Questions

    • If a team member does not cooperate, what would you do? The interviewer asked lots of follow-up questions after i answered her, which made me feel very unexpected.   Answer Question
