Audit Associate Interview

Audit Associate
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.

Interview Details – There were two part of interviews -- on campus interview and on site interview. and before interview there was a pre-interview dinner to meet the staffs. The recruiters are really nice so you don't need to get too nervous. in the dinner and interviews you would get a lot of chance to ask them anything you want to know about the company. Don't wast your chance, prepare well and ask as many questions as you can and want.

Interview Question – In the interview I mentioned a project I've done and then the interviewer was interested in it and asked the detail. So to impress the interviewer, I suggest to prepare well for all the details of each project you did and don't mention anything you are not well prepared of.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not yet. Everything is over my expectation

Summer Assurance Internship Interview

Summer Assurance Internship
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process started through campus recruiting. My first interview was a one-on-one interview with a manager and all conversational, with very basic questions about my resume. It lasted 30 mins. The second interview was the in-office interview where they flew me up to NYC. They were with a partner, a senior manager and manager. They all lasted 30 mins.

Interview Question – During the in-office visit, the questions were all behavioral. I didn't feel like they were trying to get to know me at all. They would start out with a basic question and continue to ask every detail about it. For instance they asked me "What do I do to organize my life?" I said keep a planner. Then they asked "How many lines do I have written in the planner a day?" "How many lines do I complete a day?" They also asked "Why does a soda can has a lip around the edge"   Answer Question
