Auditor
Irvine, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in March 2009.

Interview Details – So I got an interview with Pwc through my university by going to networking events and talking with recruiters. They called me in for an on campus 1 on 1 interview, and if they liked me they would call me in for an in-office interview, which I think was going to consist of 3 interviews with different managers. The lady i interviewed with was very nice and I met her a few days before at a dinner we had with Pwc, so I was somewhat acquainted with her. My interview was toward the end of the day after she had numerous other interviews, and I immediately got the sense that she was pretty over interviewing/ or has found the candidate she was looking for and no longer had a need to fill the position. She didn't really ask me any questions, she just chit-chatted for a while and I asked her more questions throughout the interview than she asked me. It was a very weird interview because it didn't contain any behavioral type questions the big 4 usually asks, and I had to really try to show skills and qualifications I had without it being awkward since she wasn't asking me any relevant questions. It was a very friendly conversation and I almost felt good after the interview because we had a nice conversation even though she didn't ask me any questions, so I kind of assumed she liked me. However, I did not get called back for 2nd interviews so I guess it wasn't the case. I'm pretty sure this isn't a very indicative interview of pwc since the one I had with Deloitte was much harder and had a lot of behavioral type questions which I imagine is what most Pwc interviews are like.

Auditor
Casablanca (Morocco)

I applied online and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – As we know, PriceWaterHouseCoopers is one of the very structural companies in the worldwide. The recruitment steps are defined as well as the process...but it's worth it. Being a part of the stuff of the company is more easier than you think. When you get there, you will realize that environment is more sane and structured.

Interview Question – Lovely place to begin your career. As we know the company is referred as one of The Big-Four, so to get in is useful and safe to spend a few years. A lot of opportunities are given on a golden plate. All you got to do is to be involved within the culture and the spirit circulated inside and of course to enjoy working with such as helpful articulated stuff.   Answer Question

Auditor Interview

Auditor
Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2009.

Interview Details – The Group interview was pretty standard, focusing on analytical, communicate skill etc. keep a confident and humble manner will help. also be able to express oneself clearly is a basic. basically seniors and managers are the observer. they have to be watching all the people at the same time, it's pretty hard to keep track. but every individual has to be careful with details that maybe the moment decide they like you or not.
1:1 interview with partner is pretty hard to predict, really depend on the personality of the interviewer.
but overall the process was pretty organized.

Interview Question – asked about one non-major GE course i took in college. it's just very unexpected.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in December 2010.

Interview Details – The work culture is really nice. First, they proposed 2 groups business cases and they judge your interaction and participation in the group. After this step, they make you do an accounting test (general accounting). After this second step, you have 2 interviews: one with a senior auditor and one with the HR.

Interview Question – Business Case : They proposed us to resolve a business case by group.   View Answer
