Tax Consultant Interview

Tax Consultant
Accra (Ghana)

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC in March 2009.

Interview Details – I applied in person for this position by leaving a copy of my CV and cover letter with the receptionist. I received a call the next day, inviting me for an aptitude test. I opted to go in the next day for the test, and I believe the next phone call inviting me for an interview the following day meant I passed the test.

Interview went very well. Was not too rigorous as compared to what I was expecting. Everybody was very nice. From partner to the tea lady.

Tax Consultant Interview

Tax Consultant
Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in April 2011.

Interview Details – I wanted to do an intern at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, Germany after my first Bachelor year. After one of my professors forwarded my application to the HR department I received an email concerning possible dates for an first telephone interview.

The telephone interview was with the Partner of the team I wanted to do my intern. It was more about the personal fit and why I wanted to do this intern in this firm. Nearly no techniqual questions.

Afterwards I was invited to the Frankfurt office and had a second interview with the partner and a Manager from his group. They questioned primarily techniqual questions, however I was able to answer them after my first year of university so from my actual point of view it was pretty basic.

Two days after he interview I got a phone call and an offer for an internship within PwC. They were pretty flexible concerning beginning and end as well about the overall length.
