    PwC Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got to experience the new "Pwc Professional" interview. Basically its supposed to standardize the interview process. The major difference is that all the interviewers take a lot of notes. During first rounds got a "what if" question: What would you do if your saw an associate disclose confidential client information to another employee.

    The second round was unique because a LOT of behavioral questions were asked anywhere from 4 to 6 per interviewer. Don't expect a conversational interview, be prepared and know the PwC professional attributes and a story about yourself that will fit each one. 3 interviews 45 min each, with 5 to 10 minutes for questions (the rest is you talking about yourself so be ready!)

    Interview Details

    I think the best advice I can give someone that is interviewing with PwC is to be yourself. Instead of answering all the questions with a perfect answer, you will have a better chance if you initiate a conversation with the interviewer. On top of that, it is important to express to the firm why you chose them, and why you want to work for them. You should be fairly specific on your reasoning.

    Interview Questions
    • The only question I got from the partner is "tell me about yourself," make sure you keep the conversation going. Don't let them ask you question after question and made it into a routine, try to talk with them and show your good qualities in those conversations.   Answer Question

    First round interview was at campus, two 45-minute behavioral interviews, the first one focusing on a new leadership framework they were rolling out and the other was a more traditional fit interview. The second round was a 4-hour process at the Los Angeles office, consisting of an office tour, two 45-minute behavioral interviews and a 45-minute case interview based on a case they had already given us. We also had 45 minutes to prepare the slides for the case. Decision was given within a week.

    Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight forward, first was a phone interview, then 3 1-on-1 interviews. One of the in person interviews was a case study. All of the questions were fairly easy, nothing out of the ordinary. The case study took a little getting used to, they really try to knock you off of your game.

    Interview Questions
    • The case was the hardest part of the interview, it dealt mostly with financial information and data, which was not the focus of the position that I applied for.   Answer Question

    Tax Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Began with a pre interview dinner with many of Pwc staff ( partners, managers, directors and associates mainly of my university's alumni) the night before my interview where I met and conversed with my interviewer which made the next day not as nerve wracking as I already knew who was interviewing me. The next day I was interviewed by a Tax director. A week later I had a call back for another pre interview dinner and an office visit interview. Pre interview dinner had 2 others that were getting interviewed and 4 Tax associates. The office visit consisted of an introduction to the firm, a tour, lunch, and then 3 back to back interviews ( 20-25 minutes each with 1 partner and 2 directors) and then we were given a closing by the recruiters. Office visit was 5 hours long. 2 weeks later I received a call back with an offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Both interviews were very relaxed. A bunch of behavioral questions, then you go out to eat in the second round. I had bad luck and got a bad interviewer for the second round who asked a bunch of hard questions, but other people said that it was supposed to be a conversational type of interview so don't sweat too much.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked me consulting questions (even though I'm not going to consulting), so logic questions.   Answer Question
