Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2015.

Interview

Resume drop for a first round on-campus interview, which may result in an invitation to interview at the office where you wish to intern. Behavioral interviews only, and most interviews are mostly conversational where the interviewer explains to you what he/she does rather than read a list of scripted questions.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time where you had a really tight deadline and the measures you took to make sure that you submitted whatever was required on time.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I applied after seeing them at my universities career fair. I had an on campus interview that was about 35 minutes long and consisted of going over my resume and behavioral questions. At the end I was asked to write a program (fizzbuzz) and also read a piece of code. The day before they took all of the candidates for dinner and we got to talk to them about the process and the company.

    About a week later I got a email asking to see if I was interested in coming down (to Dallas) for a office visit. They put all their candidates up in a really nice hotel, take you to a expensive restaurant and then the next day you go to their office. During the visit you are assigned a host from the group you're interviewing for and they take you around the office and take you out to lunch as well. You have 2 or 3 more interviews. Questions vary depending on who you get. I had a good mix of technical and behavioral questions but all the interviewers are very relaxed and easy to talk to.

    After the office visit you should hear back within a week on if you got an offer or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Orlando, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was selected for an on-campus interview. There was a pre-interview dinner where you sit at the same table as your interviewer. The next day, the interviewer didn't ask me a single question. It was very laid-back and conversational and the interviewer talked about himself for the bulk of the conversation.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for Core Tax, completed first round on campus with a campus sourcing individual. This first interview is where they distinguish resumes from individuals. All interviews were behavioral, i.e. Describe a time, give me an example, when did you type questions. The key in answering these is to have a pre planned experience to share with them for any different type these questions. Follow STAR technique, 1. Situation/Task 2. Approach 3. Result. Deep soul searching required. The interviewers want to have a conversation with you about your past and are given a set of questions to ask. Always ask how everything as been, Be Genuine/interested. They want you to first tell them about yourself and why tax? They also want to see your passion for it by hinting at extraciriculars that involve the financial industry. Always ask two good questions at end of interview. How was the path to Partner? What was it like at your early stages at the FIRM? *(not company). Smile, sit back in chair, slight eye contact. Navy tie, purple ties, or any red (for guys). I applied for summer internship for core tax, I heard back from the partner I interviewed with with an offer the NEXT DAY after superday! Others that interviewed with me for full time positions heard back within same day.
