    Interview was very easy. They just asked a few behavioral questions, and the interview was very conversational. They just try to see if you are a good fit for their office.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I was invited to attend an on campus interview after applying for the internship through the career services web site. The on campus interview was very relaxed and questions were behavioral and resume based. After the on campus interview I was invited to an in office interview. The in office interview consisted of interviewing with two partners and a director. After these interviews you were split in groups and learned more of what PwC was about. Later that night I received a call from one of the partners that interviewed me offering me the internship.

    Interview Details

    After I went through the onslaught of pre-interview on-campus recruiting events, I went through a first round phone interview and a second round office interview. The firm did have an on-campus recruiting process at my university, but I was placed on a different interview process due to my special circumstances. The people were very accommodating and nice throughout and were able to answer my questions regarding the specific work in the specialized tax groups and how my skillset would be utilized in each group.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through my university's online recruiting system. After approximately one week, PwC emailed me about interviewing on campus. My on campus interview was a one-on-one interview with an assurance director. The interview was laidback, she talked about the role she served within the firm, what my responsibilities would be as an associate, and asked me a few behavioral questions. Unfortunately, I did not receive a second round interview; however, it was a decent interviewing experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were behavioral - - Tell me about a type you worked on a group project and one of the members was not doing their portion of the work, how did you and the rest of the group address and resolve this issue?   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my University and was asked back for an on-campus interview. There was a Happy Hour social the night before, where the recruiters made it seem like we were all already "in" since they do the majority of their cuts based on the resume. Interview was simple behavioral questions and friendly conversation, but the recruiter and I did not click so I did not get asked back.

    Networking is EVERYTHING for PwC - network with them as soon as possible, even freshmen year. Even just emailing a recruiter back and forth a few times is valuable. They also take your attendance at events, so show up to the Career Fair, socials, etc.
