Applied thru college. About 45 minutes. Most of the questions were behavioral ones and the interviewer was a manager. The talk was pretty easy. Introduce yourself. Why pwc. Why Tax. What is your weakness

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had 1 on campus interview (30 min) with the manager, and 3 interviews (20 min each) in the office. All of interviewers were very friendly and helpful. There were no technical questions about PwC or position that I applied for, only questions from resume or behavioral questions. Overall it was quite easy, as log as you know how to prove that you have necessary skills for the position, and that why you are interested in the job.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed on campus but was not invited for the second round. I was interviewed by a tax partner. It was a comfortable atmosphere. No difficult questions but i fumbled a little. I was not as prepared as i thought i was (that is, i had no cover letter and no supporting documents e.g. previous projects). It was about 45 minutes but it went by so fast.

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

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's career website. I got a first round and had a 1 on 1 interview with a Tax Manager, who I actually ended up meeting the night before the Interview at the Pre-Interview Reception. I found out 2 weeks later that I got a 2nd round and would have a Tax SuperDay at the actual office. The Tax SuperDay was about a month later and consisted of 2 days. PwC paid for my hotel and there was again a Pre-Interview dinner the night before, which was really fun. I got to connect and talk to a lot of people who worked in the department I was interviewing for and it really helped to calm my nerves.

    The next morning I had 3 interviews including one with a partner. All three individuals were very easygoing and easy to talk to!

    Overall, a great experience; they genuinely just want to get to know you as a person and aren't looking to trip you up or anything.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were strictly behavioral and I ended up just having a normal conversation with the interviewers. However one did ask me a question along the lines of "Was there a time when you realized you made a mistake in something and how did you go about alleviating that mistake?"

      I was just caught off guard and quickly had to think of a situation that matched this, but overall the questions were simple and it was a great experience!

    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
