Difficult Interview

Manager Interview

Manager
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC in January 2014.

Interview Details – Have spoken to 8 different people along the process. It was long but very rewarding as I got to know a lot about the company before I even joined. It may seem that the long process could give you a false impression but in my case helped me to make my decision as I was able to network with a lot of different people from different levels that told me several good things about the company.

Interview Question – Since I was interviewed for a position which I am expert, I did not face any difficulties in responding their questions. However, their questions were tricky hard ones and very tailored for the job level I was applying for. It was appropriate and very likely situations you will be facing during your projects.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I wanted to be one level higher than they were offering. The compensation they offered me was a 30% bump of my current compensation which is great, however, when I looked at their benefits (specially Health Insurance) it would cost me 300% more than what I currently pay at my current position.

Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at PwC in January 2009.

Interview Details – A buddy of mine was high up in the company, basically within the C-Suite so they were happy to have me come in and interview.

Interview Question – They asked me if there was something I did not like to do work wise so that they could use that information later on when asking me to prove myself for my promotion to director.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They don't negotiate unless you get a better offer after being with the firm for a while. If you plan to go to a competitor they will match your offer to keep you from going there.
