    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is split into 4 stages and assuming there are no delays takes about a month to navigate your way through. The system is as follows: Application form, telephone interview, assessment centre, final interview, offer! The process up until final interview is hosted by the HR department, but your final interview will be with a Partner from the business division/unit that you are applying to.

    Lots of steps involved.. Interview with different person from different hierarchy. First level consist of interview with human resource department. if passed then, proceed with interview with other levels of management, mostly with those responsible of the departments or industry or client segment you will most probably be working for. The last level of interview is with the partner who is at the highest level in the hierarchy. Also, to be noted that recruitment is done mostly at the university campus.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    First I had to apply online. Then a recruiter called me. I did not like her because she only let me apply to my first location choice. I could not interview with the philly office as well.

    After my basic interview with the recruiter I had an office interview. First we had to eat breakfast with the other people interviewing. Then we had an intro session. After, we had three one on one interviews . The day concluded with lunch at a local restaurant.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a question about whether or not I invest in ethical companies.

      Also during the intro, we were asked "fun facts" about us. Seemed cheesy to me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Since I applied to a PwC office in another province, my first interview was through Skype. Most questions are about your past experience with team work, leadership, etc. 2-3 days later they called me and invited me to a second round interview. Flight and accommodations were taken care of. Awesome! Second round consists of 5 parts: partner interview, written exercise, group exercise, office tour, and lunch.The interview with the partner is the easiest in my opinion. Written exercise was challenging. We were given 30 minutes to read a bunch of stuff and write a 1-2 page report. There was not enough time. Remember to bring a watch! The report has nothing to do with Accounting so you don't have to review your Accounting notes. Group exercise was okay. Again, we weren't given a lot of time to read and discuss the case. Just remember to be a team player! At night, they invited us to have dinner at a restaurant. They brought out a lot of staff and partners.

    Overall, I think all my interviewers are really nice and professional. It was a good experience and the most unique interview I have ever had.

    No results are given until the end of the blackout period.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    There were two part of interviews -- on campus interview and on site interview. and before interview there was a pre-interview dinner to meet the staffs. The recruiters are really nice so you don't need to get too nervous. in the dinner and interviews you would get a lot of chance to ask them anything you want to know about the company. Don't wast your chance, prepare well and ask as many questions as you can and want.

    Interview Questions

    • In the interview I mentioned a project I've done and then the interviewer was interested in it and asked the detail. So to impress the interviewer, I suggest to prepare well for all the details of each project you did and don't mention anything you are not well prepared of.   Answer Question

    Not yet. Everything is over my expectation

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Manila, Manila (Philippines)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview for me was tough, maybe because I am not well prepared. The final interview was scheduled 2 weeks after, it was easier than my initial interview ...but unfortunately, I did not received any calls. make sure to review basic accounting if you are not currently reviewing for the board exam. it is quiet difficult without a refresher.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    On-campus interview with lots of behavior questions. The interviewer kept asking for examples about your team work. Be prepared for that. Not much questions about resume. The interviewer answered all the questions thoroughly. Also, there are employees outside the interview room, be prepared to talk to them too. I think that's part of the interview process.
