Summer Internship Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – I went the explorer day a few months back and I used this opportunity to talk to as many employees I could. A few weeks later I received a phone call inviting me to a superday. Fast forward to the day of the superday, I kept in touch with my recruiter and talked to multiple people in the firm.
Upon arrival, all the candidates and I were all greeted and given breakfast. After an information session there was a panel of employees who answered any questions we had. We were soon divided and given a companion to walk us to each interview. I had two interviews, one with a director then a partner. I did well because of prior interview experience and preparation time i put in. After my interviews, we were taken out to lunch and then sent home. I received a call two hours with an offer.

Interview Question – Nothing, I was very prepared. Know your resume, use the star method, show them you are passionate and motivated   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiating
