Risk Assurance Interview

Interview Details

The first round interview was very easy if you can make the interview more conversational rather than just the manager asking questions. The 2nd round consists of 3 interviews usually back to back to back. It is a long process but you are assigned an associate to help you throughout the day. At the end of the interviews, you go to lunch with associates. Its important to network during that time.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was primarily behavioral and honestly did not have much to do with accounting or information controls at all. The interview was more about my life and finding a stylistic fit from a work-life balance point a view.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe to me a time that you had a bad group or group project and how you handled it.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at PwC in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was based on school since my process was on campus. They arranged a pre-night reception to see if you are a good fit socially and the next day comes with the interview. The interview was mostly behaviour but my interviewer did ask me about risk control. Be prepared if you are interested in the position.

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I got accepted for the initial on-campus interviews through the application screening process. After the on-campus interview, I was got invited in-house. Make sure to be yourself throughout the whole process; it not only helps you in your chances of obtaining a job/internship, but it also helps the company know if you fit or not which, in turn, lets you know whether you want to work for the company or not.

    Interview Questions
    • Informal oral case study. I was caught by surprise, but it's really not that bad. Just stay focused and stay on topic.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at PwC in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was great, I was a campus recruit so my first interview was on campus. After the on-campus interview, if you were selected to do so, you held an office vist/office interview with 2-3 members of upper level management. If all went well you get a call back and an offer.
