Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied 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

    Risk Assurance 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 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first appplied to the posting through the career services website on campus, through which I was notified of a first round interview. All of the candidates were taken out for a pre-interview welcome dinner the day before the interview where we chatted with current associates of the firm in a very informal manner. I then interviewed the next day, and was contacted by HR personnel about 4-6 days later notifying me that I was selected for a second and final round interview. The final round interview, or "Superday" was set for about 2 weeks from that date. There we had a short overview of the company, then a panel discussion with current senior associates, and then 3 back-to-back 1:1 interviews with a manager, director, and partner. I received a phone call from a partner the same day informing me that I had been given an offer.

    The interviews were very relaxed and easy-going. The interviewers basically went down my resume and asked various behavioral questions based upon the information presented on the resume. They also asked why I was interested in joining PwC (as opposed to the other Big 3 and other firms), and what I thought the practice that I interviewed for actuall entailed. Overall it was pretty basic stuff.

    Be sure to relax, be yourself, smile, and speak confidently.

    Interview Details

    The interview was an on campus interview. The lady was very nice but the greeters were arrogant. The interview went well (at least I thought so) but I did not get the job.

    I applied 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    My classmate who already got the internship referred me to a director, and the director referred me for this job. The interviewer did not even ask me to introduce myself. And he only asked a question from my resume. After 5 minutes' casual talk, he said I can start ask him questions. This was my first corporate interview, even though I did get the offer, I still feel the people are very nice and helpful! And I really appreciated that opportunity!
