    Tax Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Pre-interview process: Applied through university career site. Found out I got an interview about a week later. First round interview was about a week after that. 1st round interview: Had a networking session the night before the interview on campus. Met with several associates, managers, a director and a partner. I honestly think this was one of the reasons why I eventually got an offer - because I networked my @$$ off. Next day, I had a 30-minute interview with the partner who I had met the previous night. Asked really basic questions about my resume and experience. Found out the next day that I had been selected for super-day that would be 2 weeks later. Super-day interviews: Had a dinner with some of the staff the night before at a nice restaurant. Grabbed a glass of white wine and immediately found 2 partners to talk to (again, networking my @$$ off). Then ate dinner and chatted with one of the partners, an associate, and a couple of the other interviewees. The next day, we all got breakfast with a bunch of associates. After we walked to the office, sat through a 30-minute presentation, and immediately were put through 3 30-minute interviews, first with a director, and then with 2 managers. The interviews were all pretty basic, asking about my resume, experience, and then asking some behavioral questions "because they had to." Afterwards, I was brought to a room where they gave me sheets about all the details of working (health benefits, tech benefits, etc.). Then all of the interviewees and some associates walked to a nearby restaurant and got lunch at a nice restaurant. THEN we walked back to the office and sat through another 30-minute presentation. And THEN, FINALLY, the interview was over. I found out the next Monday that I had been extended an offer.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty great. It was mostly behavioral and not much testing on actual audit knowledge. I guess you don't need to know everything before you start because of the phenomenal training they give. It's not very difficult to pass the interviews. By the time you reach the final interview you are mostly in. The hardest part about getting into the firm is being qualified and being recruited.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The new interview process covers several acumen areas: business, global, whole leadership, relationships, and technical. Several questions can be asked for each area and there will be follow up questions based on your response to the question. You will likely need to be able to provide examples of a time you demonstrated leadership, technical capabilities, or business acumen. Being caught up on current events will help for global acumen - this might not always be an essential question to get right for on campus interviews.
