Audit Interview

Anonymous Employee in Greensboro, NC

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Greensboro, NC) in November 2017.

Interview

I️ was struggling to find an internship as it got closer to my graduation date. Luckily, the head of my MSA program reached out and said PwC still had some positions open. I️ sent my resume to an alumni from my school and she got it in the hands of the recruiter. The first call was to set up an informal conversation, which I did the next day. Then within 2-3 days I was asked to set up 2 virtual interviews on that Friday. They were both with partners and they were both very friendly. I felt the interviews went great. One was still formal but very relaxed with maybe 1 actual behavior question. The 2nd probably had 4-5 behavior questions. My interviews were over at 1:45, I sent two thank you emails at around 3 and around 5:30 I️ got a phone call from the person who initially called me in the beginning to extend an offer so I could have good news before the weekend. I was told that I will receive my formal acceptance email on Monday.

Just a FYI, if you are in this process expect some phone calls from out of state numbers. And Interns will not have a Case Interview. I assume that is only for full time hires.

    Interview

    Not friendly interviewers. They had my information wrong for all three interviews even after I made several attempts for them to have the correct and updated information. The last interview I had they forgot about my interview. I had to contact the recruiter to remind them that I had an interview.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very technical and boring. Didn't seem too interested in me as a person. Not as many behavioral questions which you would expect for an internship position. Asking for more experience when I am applying so that I can get experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The total interview process was pretty nice and very respectful. It was a 30 mins interview, and most of the questions they asked were not very hard to answer. I did not really adjust the pace to answer those questions. I took too long time to answer one question, and it was getting a little bit hurry to go through all of the questions later.
    Good luck with everyone who is interested! Great company to work for.

There was a pre interview dinner the day before the interview and you may want to act at your best level in the event to show how likable you are.
