    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a 30 minute phone conversation with a recruiter. I then interviewed in person. I met with 4 different people over the course of four hours. It was very casual and more of a discussion. There were some typical interview questions (strengths and weaknesses) but really it was just a conversation to see if I would be a fit with their culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected thing was a lack of a question. There was no case study (at least for undergraduates). Unlike other consulting firms, there was no case study, which made the interview process easy but was definitely unexpected.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Take the offer, tons of applicants and not much room to negotiate

    Interview

    Need very good grades to get interview, but once you've gotten that far it's all about your personality! They look for at least B+ average and A average in core accounting courses. Once they have narrowed it down to the high performers in school, everyone is on a level playing field meaning it is all about who you are as a person.

    Interview Questions

    • It was just conversational for me, no tough questions. They just want to know you are someone they want to work with.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was not an option.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    application, telephone interview, assessment centre, final interview

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected question. The difficulty of interview can be depending on the interviewer due to their personalities(my opinion), thus you need to be aware that they can be nice or very rude. Also you need to try to understand what the interviewer wants to hear 'exactly' as their questions can sometimes be unclear and vague then do not assume and ask them again.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    got transferred(as the position i applied was filled during the interview process) to another position which I wasnt interested

    Interview

    I was interviewed at my university. A couple of weeks later I was invited to an office visit. The company paid for all travel expenses. At the office visit, I was interviewed by three different people: one partner and two senior managers. Everyone was great and the interviews went smoother than expected. A few days later I received my offer.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    One 30 minute on campus interview. Got extended to the second round. Now in the middle of preparation for the next interview. Before the on-campus interview, there is a pre-reception event to network with the recruiter and client service representatives. It's very relaxing environment. It's a good chance to ask questions and get to know the people in the company. The on campus interview is all behavioral type of questions.
