    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very smooth. Be "on" and "prepared" at all time. Be yourself in the interview- they want to know the real you, not the fake you. If I didn't know an answer, I didn't know it. I actually said no to a question during the interview and told them I really wanted the job but wouldn't be doing 16 hour days.

    Interview Questions
    • PwC uses their new "framework" to ask questions. Some questions to expect, "How do you keep up with current events?" "How do you use those current events in relation to your work?" "If one manager gives you work due at the end of the week, then another manager gives you work due at the end of the week, what do you do?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation but still waiting on other offers from other Big 4

    First round of interviews took place on campus. Prior to the first round, there was a pre-interview social. The first round was mostly behavioral questions. I was invited to the second round a week later. The second round was held in their office, where they talked about the company, had a panel and held the 3 interviews. Each was 30 minutes and they were back to back. I received the offer the same day.

    Interview Details

    I received an interview through on campus recruiting. It was 30 minutes long. A partner from the tax department came down to our university to interview us. (All the associates at the social event will help the interviewer decide who to pick!)

    All candidates that were there for the interview had the same question. The interviewer believed that its not fair to grade everyone on a different level.

    Interview Questions
    • The first 10 minutes are conversational. For the nxt 15 minutes she asks 3 questions about, leadership style, values in a workplace, and how you motivate yourself.   Answer Question
