    Brand Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview was with a person from the HR department over the telephone. The person was extremely professional, polite and forthcoming about the position and the salary, both in the initial email contact and on the phone. I was told that the position was newly created to meet changing firm needs. It felt to me that the person conducting the interview did not have a deep understanding of skills that would make someone successful in the position. It also felt that the interviewer was looking for a formulaic set of answers and not knowledgeable enough to respond to unexpected responses.

    Interview Questions
    • Repeated questions about how experience that was clearly analogous but not a precise fit was relevant.   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    First went through on campus recruiting. Met with a manager from PWC and was very conversational interview. Asked about teamwork examples (bad team players, how you handled situation, etc). Received a call for a second round interview about 4-5 days afterwards. The super day kept being pushed back because they wanted all the candidates to be in the office at the same time. Was pushed back about 3 weeks to late November.
    Superday started with breakfast, a HR manager presentation and then a panel with 2 young associates. Make sure to ask a question ( I asked about opportunities for international travel). Next I had 3 consecutive interviews starting with the manager, then director and lastly managing director. The manager asked the most technical questions ( Why Pwc, why tax, how do you manage time, work late + manage course load, team work, etc). The director was very laid-back and talked about the social aspect, sports teams that PWC can offer. Maybe asked 1 question off my resume regarding previous internship. Lastly was the managing director. Asked several questions about why accounting, why my school and why tax. Make sure to speak about at least one relevant accounting issue related to your position with the partner. This will set you apart from other candidates and the partners will love it that you did some outside research. Overall process was simple. Interviewed wendesday and heard back Monday for an offer in NYC office.
