Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Chicago, IL Sep 2010 – Reviewed Oct 1, 2010
Interview Details – I applied in June and got a call in September for a phone interview. After the phone interview I was invited to the Chicago office and met with a HR manager, Director, and a partner. Each of these individuals had a 30 minute interview with me which were back to back. They were mostly behavioral questions and focused more on team work and leadership. 3 weeks later I got a call with an offer and I accepted.
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate because I was happy with what I got.
No Offer – Interviewed in New York, NY Feb 2010 – Reviewed Mar 4, 2010
Interview Details – The interview was jointly hosted by Georgetown University and NYU, and is for an associate position in the tax department. Overall, the experience is very pleasant because the interviewer is humorous and easy going. Most questions were back-ground related - how I come to be who I am. He also did a detailed description of the job function at PwC. Overall the experience was good. However, it's almost a week and I still have not received a call back, which means I might be outcompeted by other candidacy. I hope at least I get a word that I am not moving to the second round by this friday. The realm of uncertainty is quite horrifying at this time.
