    Risk Assurance Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through employee referral. Went into the Boston office for an interview with a partner, manager, and senior associate. The interview experience was about a half day from 9:00 to 2:00. Breakfast and a presentation in the morning, short tour, and then 3 half hour interviews. After that all of the candidates went to lunch with the hosts. Over all not a bad experience. I still haven't received an offer though and my interview was yesterday. So my hope is fading.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university career center. After the deadline, I received an invitation for the first round interviews, which were on campus. These were two 45 min interviews with a current manager and a Director. In total, the first round interviews were 90 minutes. A week later I received an invitation for the final round interviews, which were at a PwC office. The second round interviews were from 8:15 until 12:30. In total, there were three interviews: first with a senior partner, than with an consultant , and finally a case based interview. They give you the case 48 hours in advance to prepare at home. However, you receive the questions once you are at the office and then you have to prepare slides on paper (4 to 10 slides). The time frame for slides preparation is 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself? (i was asked this question from all of them) How do you feel traveling 80% of your time at PwC? Questions about teaming experiences: tell me a about a time you had a conflict in a team; when someone on your team could not deliver on time; do you work best in a team or individually. Be sure to know the PwC professional framework: whole leadership, business acumen, global acumen, relationships, and technological capabilities. (google it, read about it, know it inside out) Come up with examples for all of them that relate to your unique personal and professional experiences. All questions were related to this PwC professional framework.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    When I arrived they put 3 people to 1 PWC professional and gave us a presentation and breakfast. We were then told that we would have 3, 1 on 1 interviews with a manager, an associate, and a partner. All were very conversational and they didn't ask very many questions. They really don't expect you to have much experience as you aren't working in an accounting line of service in this internship. Just smile, be nice, and HAVE QUESTIONS! Everyone is super cool and friendly. The partner called me the next day offering me the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about an experience that you've had that ties into global acumen. Do you have any questions for me? There were maybe 3-5 behavioral questions through out the whole process.   Answer Question
