    Fixed Term Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume and received an email request to schedule a phone interview the following week. After the phone interview I was sent a series of Microsoft tests to take at home. 2 days later I received an email inviting me to interview with 2 people. Interview was formal, lots of "what if" "what would you" kind of questions. That evening I received another email requesting I meet with a 3 person the following day. 3 rd interview was more of a "getting to know" the company and expectations. I was called 2 days later and offered the job. I declined the offer as I had never met the partner whom I would be working for and was told that I wouldn't meet him/her until I started. PwC is going through some changes with their administrative staff and I didn't feel comfortable accepting a position having never met the partner and with the possibility that my position would end after the 1 year contract. These Fixed Term positions are just that, fixed term and should probably be called long term temp. Unless you are unemployed and simply need to work I would not suggest applying.

    Wasn't given the opportunity to meet with who I would be working for. I was all on board with the whole fixed term until I received an offer and when I asked to meet the partner first and was told no, I realized regardless of what they tell you about what "fixed term" means, it is simply just a Temp position to fill open positions until the powers to be make a decision on the direction of their administrative positions.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straight forward. It took a few weeks for the whole process to complete but I applied on campus and had a final round. The people are really nice and that's the main thing they emphasize, the fit to the organization. However, be very explicit in what group you are interested in and articulate that clearly.

    • Actually, nothing here at all. The most difficult one was tell me about how you solve problems. There are more concerned with getting to know you.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus. It was a one on one interview with a senior vice president. It was predominantly behavioral. Question we spent the most time on was why this group within PwC. I would say close to half of the 45 minute interview was spent on explaining what the group did on a day to day basis and learning about PwC. No technical questions in the first round
