Experienced Advisory Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at PwC in May 2013.

Interview Details – It is a very strenuous process that takes weeks, even months to complete. Have patience because you will need it.

1st rd - Phone screening with HR to talk about my background and what I was looking for
2nd rd - Phone interview with Mgr to discuss my background, technical skills and where I would fit in with the advisory group (ARCA)
3rd rd - Two In person interviews with a manager and senior manager. Sr Mgr was late to our meeting so we didn't have much time to talk, however we discussed my background and what he was looking for.
Mgr interview was more technical in nature and consisted of very detailed questions previous projects, what skills were used, etc.

Interview Details – Campus recruiting. Recruiter reviewed the resume and gave good tips. First interview with a director on Campus. Was telling about the company and his path. Ask basic questions from the resume. Second interview was with three individuals. A senior manager, a partner and an HR person. Interviews were back to back. Reception and breakfast perceeded, followed by a forum with a partner and an associate. Important to ask questions. Following was an office tour and an escort to the interviwers. At the interview, all was done in the nicest atmosphere. Interviewers were telling about themselves. What mainly all wanted to see was a normal well rounded person that wanted to contribute. Some scenario questions were asked.
