Risk Assurance Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at PwC

Interview Details – Participated in the accounting recruiting process through Beta Alpha Psi during undergrad. Participated in socials, on-campus job fair, on-campus interview, and then the office visit interviews.

Interview Question – None of it was "tricky", they just wanted to get a feel for you as a person, and get to know what you were interested in. Through conversation, interviewers decide whether they see you as a fit for the firm and as someone they would allow representing the firm in front of a client.   Answer Question

Risk Assurance Associate Interview

I applied through college or university and 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.

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – What do you know about PwC? Just was not prepared for something that basics, did not know where to start with.   Answer Question

Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through school and PwC for full time.
Pre-interview dinner with candidates and professionals from all practices.
First round interview was 45 minutes with a director-- behavioral and resume questions.
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.
Breakfast, lunch, and office tour with a personal host.
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. Every person who says one good thing about you is another step closer. Try to connect with professionals in your field past just a 'thank you' email.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when you did not perform to your expectation and your takeaways.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
