Very Easy Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in January 2009.
Interview Details – Very simple. My school sent my resume to a list of firms, which then chose who they wanted to interview with. I got an interview, the firm came to my school, and I interviewed with two people from the firm separately for about 10-15 minutes each, all in one day. Then I received a phone call with an offer a few weeks later.
Interview Question – Asked if I work better alone or in a group Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at PwC in January 2009.
Interview Details – Casual interview with PwC professionals, first at the college level, then at the Boston office with several employees. Also received a tour of the office. Overall, a good experience that showed me the firm and the people, which made me comfortable choosing to work there.
Negotiation Details – N/A
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – The hiring process was similar to that of all of the "Big Four" accounting firms that I interviewed with, in that it consisted of a round of on-campus interviews, followed by a second round of in-office interviews. The people that I met throughout were a wide variety of PWC employees from all levels of the corporation, and I felt like I got a better understanding of what the culture there was like than at some of the other firms where I did not get to meet as many employees.
I ultimately chose PWC because I felt that of the firms I received offers from (there were 7 of them), they had the best mixture of work ethic and being laid back. I did not speak to anyone who was not very welcoming.
Interview Question – What exactly do you think my average day is like at PWC? View Answer
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – I interviewed at my school first and they referred me to the New York Office. It was a whole day affair. In the morning you sit with all the other candidates in a conference room and there are 3 employers from the company that talk about their jobs within the company and then they open the floor for questions. Ask a question, you'll impress them. Then you have a mentor for the day who shows you around the office building. You have 3 interviews with different levels within the tax department. All relatively casual. At the end you go out to eat with your mentor.
Interview Question – So what do you want to talk about? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – There were screening interviews with two groups of two people, followed by a day of call-back interviews. Their interviewers tend to be very conversational, which is a unique trait. I genuinely enjoyed my time speaking with them. During my call-back interviews, I was escorted by an associate around the floor where I was to work and from interview to interview. This permitted me to gain insight into how the place was run and how happy its employees were.
Interview Question – Please tell me about the unitary business doctrine. View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – Started as an on campus interview and was then called in for an on site interview. The people were very friendly and provided lunch. One of the interviews was behavioral and the other was laid back.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time you gave someone advice Answer Question
The process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC in September 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.
The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in February 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.
Interview Question – Tell me who you are? View Answer
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC in September 2008.
Interview Details – This was an on campus interview and office visit. Very laid back on campus more just getting to know you and personality type questions. Office visit more formal multiple one on one interviews and dinners. PwC does reimburse for travel and even put me up in the Four Seasons in Atlanta.
Interview Question – What was your most difficult obstical to over come. View Answer
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – Applied online through their website and proceeded to do their psychometric tests.
After a month, I was called in for an interview.
The whole process consisted of interviews with different seniors and a relatively simple test on the spot - mainly math, problem-solving and a case study. Even though some were tax-related, they were basic questions which would not necessarily require preparation or even prior knowledge.
Interview Question – Very standard behavioural questions - although I found that the interview didn't seem to have a good flow. At times, some questions seemed like they were asked for the sake of it without much direction or purpose.
No technical questions were asked during the interview. Answer Question
