Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Tampa, FL) in February 2016.

Interview

I applied online on a Sunday and received an email from a recruiter that Tuesday to set-up a phone screen. The phone screen took about 7 minutes. I was invited for an in-person interview about a week and a half later. The in-person interview was with a Manager (30 min) and a Senior Manager (30 min). I received a job offer the next day. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE QUICK TURNAROUND TIME!!!

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR rep, Skype interview with partner, office visit/interview with partners & manager. They will promise you the world and then not deliver it once you start working. It's all about getting more warm bodies to chew through them as necessary. The office was nice but outdated and there were no signs on the building actually letting people know PwC was in town.

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The process was quite lengthy. I got 4-5 interviews with very similar questions. I thought it could be more efficient. The interview was performed by telephone calls, and a partner, senior manager, HR managers were interviewers. Some of the questions were duplicate and there was no odd questions, meaning questions were pretty straight forward.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you applying for PwC, not other accounting firms?
      What is your strength and weakness?
      Have you ever encountered difficulty? For so how did you overcome it?

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Very relaxed interviews in my experience. The firm wants to get a handle on your personality and whether you'll fit in. They seem to let your grades and involvement speak for themselves (based on a campus interview). Make sure you are well rounded with extracurriculars as the firm seems to like seeing that you can multitask which is very important on the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a situation where you had to deal with adversity and how you accomplished what you set out to do. Also, when working on a team, how did you deal with a team member who was unresponsive/poor/etc?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Little room for negotiation as a campus hire.
