Risk Assurance Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details

Very low stress interview with one individual (manager, director, or partner) on campus, followed by interview in office with (1) senior associate/manager, then (2) partner. Interviewers are well-trained in recognizing high-functioning team members with required skills. Interview questions will be conversational to get a sense of how a person may or may not fit in with PwC culture and the demands of working in a team environment most of the time.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
Very little negotiation on pay as PwC is able to hire the next person in line, but was able to state preference on office location and travel.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I attended a university job fair and subsequently applied using PwC's website. About a week after talking to the recruiter, I got an email asking me to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was straight forward and consisted only of typical behavioral questions. About a week after the phone interview, I got a call about scheduling an office visit for the final round of interviews. 2 weeks later, I attended the office visit. The office visit included two one-on-one interviews - one with a partner and one with a manager. These interviews were similar to the phone interview with a couple of behavioral questions. There weren't any major curve balls or unexpected questions.

    Applied through school and PwC for full time.
    Pre-interview dinner with candidates and professionals from all practices.

    Got a call back three business days later for a second round invitation.
    Thursday night dinner, each table consisted of three candidates and three professionals.
    Three interviews on Friday morning consisted of a senior, a director, and a partner.

    Additional events in the afternoon to get to know PwC better.

    Make sure to give the best impression to everyone you meet from the day you first express interest. Keep your campus recruiter updated with your continuing interest in PwC.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got the interview via School application. I talked to the recruiter and a senior in the group to learn about the position and the interview.

    Interview was with head of the financial services group. All the questions are pretty basics, not even so behavioral, basically let you talk about yourself and go over something interesting on the resumes.

    You have to catch every opportunity to stand out instead of just plainly finish each question.
