Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

Interview

I had three separate phone interviews, then was flown out of state for the in person interview. Everything went very smoothly. A process I expected to be intimidating but it turned out to be a great experience.

Interview Questions

  • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. I was prepared to answer questions about my interest in the position, the field, and the company. The position I was applying for was entry level, so apart from asking questions about my interest in the job they mainly stuck to questions about what was on my resume. They did not try and ask tricky questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    On campus interview with pwc. I actually tot i did v well. the reason i didnt get in might be that my resume was just too weak, mostly consisted of on-campus experience with no helpful internships. I wish i had tried harder to get myself an internship before but that's alr done. good luck to you struggling ppl. btw look as good as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. The interviewer asked very few questions but let me go through the resume by myself. I took that as nothing on my resume attracted him. but always be familiar with your resume especially where a technical question might pop up.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Plan to have at least three interviews with managers/partners. Relaxed interview process focusing more on interpersonal interactions rather than technical skills. The interview flows like a conversation with no/limited technical questions. Things to talk about are life experiences, educational backgroud, hobbies, community involvement, etc. Each interview goes for about thirty minutes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Houston, TX) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very brief, very curt, would not do it again. Overall, I would recommend additional preparation for anyone looking at this position. Personally, I did not find it inviting and overall was offput. The questions were difficult and did not fit the situation very well. Ultimately, you should review necessary information to prepare but then make sure you speak to someone within the network to make sure you get the job. I liked my interviewer she was very nice.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process required me to have a phone interview with a senior associate. Afterwards, I had a set of interviews in the office because of which I was hired after a week. I spoke with people at the manager and partner level, both of whom seemed very friendly. Due to my positive interview process and internship, I decided to accept a full time position with them.
