    Standard interview process:

    Preliminary phone interview - behavioral questions on leadership

    The employees are there to answer any questions and it looked like a fun working environment. Good experience and not a very tough interview process.

    Senior Associate - Advisory Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the company website and was contacted by a recruiter in a couple of days time. The first conversation I had was with the recruiter and it was about my goals and aspirations. After that, I was schedule for a phone interview with another Sr. Associate in the practice. That call was 30-45 minutes and was about my experiences, what the position I am interviewing for has to offer and how my experience can be of use for the practice.

    After this call I was schedule for an interview day at one of the PwC offices. There were 3 more candidates for Senior or Experienced Associate position in the same team. The on-site interview was scheduled as four 30 minute interviews with 3 partners and one senior. It was mostly getting to know kind of thing. They are judging you mostly on how personable you are, how well you communicate your ideas and views and past experiences.

    After that, I was told that I will hear about the decision in a week or so.

    I got the offer in a week. Unfortunately, I had to turn down this fantastic opportunity because I had much stronger offers on my table with similar scope in other Big 4 companies. If they were willing to improve on their offer(which they were not), I would have taken it.

    My suggestion would be to make sure you communicate your expectations(in terms of title and compensation) properly.

    Lastly, I read this somewhere and I would like to share it "you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate."

    All the best!

    Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    We received an email from our career services to apply for the position and I did so. A week or so later, I received an invitation for a campus interview. I was really surprised they chose my application as I had absolutely no experience in accounting, tax or audit. The only experience I had was in retail. To prep for my interview, I prayed (of course), and use this website to help me prepare.

    The day of the interview, I interviewed with a director in tax. Before then, one of the senior associates and I were having leisurely conversation as she assured me that my interviewer was really nice, and that, she was. She introduced herself, told me about her background and asked about mine. The entire interview was based on behavioral questions, which she explained first hand. The interview went really well and I was anxiously awaiting an onsite invite.

    Three days later, I received an invite for an onsite visit. It was just as described in feedback I had previously read on glassdoor. Three days after that, I attended a dinner where I was able to meet with other candidates and employees of the main 3 levels (senior associates, managers, and partners). I was so excited! The dinner was more of a get-to-know-you and ask any questions type of deal. The next day were interviews. I was assigned a buddy who took me on a tour and to the interviewers. The interviews, for me, were more conversational. If you are very personable and are prepared to share stories, your interviews will pass quickly.

    After the interviews we were treated to lunch and later they told us more about the company and its culture. (Make sure you have plenty of questions!)

    The long awaited (for me anyway ha ha), five days later, I received a call from the partner who interviewed me.

    Senior Associate - Advisory Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from an experience recruiter as I have relevant experience. I had a couple of telephonic interview rounds with a Manager and Director. The telephonic interviews were very conversation based and had very few technical questions but mainly was based on the experience and real world consulting related questions. I was very happy with the way both my telephonic interview went and I was expecting an on site visit invite. Within a couple of days I was contacted by the recruiter to setup the on site visit. I was invited to their Atlanta office on an interview day, where I had three 45 minutes meetings with a manager, director and a partner. The in person interview with the director was subject matter related and I was asked a few functional questions as well as a few behavioral questions. I was also introduced to the organizational structure and my responsibilities in the respective practice. The conversation with the partner was very informative and was on a lighter note. Most of my job and career growth related question were answered in this round. The third interview with the manager was very easy going and I was asked to give a detailed explanation with examples on a few aspects of the business and the challenges we face on a day - day basis. I found all the three interviews highly professional and in touch with the actual situations we face as a consultant while working at the client end. Overall it was a very exciting and positive experience and I was very impressed by the way the entire interview process went. They are very professional in their outlook and know well what they want from the potential employee.

    Interview Questions
    • None. I did my study well and was expecting all the questions as they were well connected with the challenges we face in the professional workplace as a consultant. If you know what you do and you understand the responsibilities of the role you are interviewing for the process will be quite straightforward and easy going.   Answer Question
