Experienced Tax Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.

Interview

Applied online and got the phone interview by a recruiter. The interview lasted for 30 minutes and it was all about behavior questions. The phone call was from the FL which was 4 hours ahead of the LA time. Since I did not pay attention, I had to do the interview at 6 am, which was not a good time for the interview for such a great opportunity. Questions were not that challengeable but well preparations was needed. The recruiter asked me three locations I preferred and I got rejected email two weeks after the phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    On-campus interview, followed by two in-office interviews. Friendly and definitely more focused on personality and fit in the group than technical knowledge. I enjoyed the interview process and left feeling relieved.

    Experienced Tax Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I was an intern at PwC during a summer between my second and third year of law school. The hiring process began during the fall of 2011, when I was screened at an interview on campus. That screening is very casual, they just want to see if you're an interesting person committed to tax law. The internship was not bad, 8 hours a day b/c you are paid hourly. The offer comes the last week of your internship.

    Interview Questions

    • N/A - just prove you're committed to tax law, that you're smart (but your grades should speak for you here), that you have a good personality.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. As an intern, they take you into a conference room, sit you down with HR. HR hands you a piece of paper with your salary. They don't budge, because it's a bit of a sausage making factory: PwC has a cookie-cutter mentality when it comes to your staff. They want, and expect, you to take your salary and be grateful. If you were hiring laterally (ie Senior Associate or above), you may have more negotiating power.
