    Interview

    One 30 minutes interview. Went through my resume and answered my questions. The part about my experience actually ended very quickly and the main part of the interview was me asking questions and she answered them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Athens, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was easy. PwC tried to make me feel as relaxed as possible. Interview was very short and it feels more like a conversation between us. The interviewer just went over my resume and ask questions based on my activities.

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

    Interview

    First the at-school interview for the leadership program, then another interview at the leadership program. Mostly behavioral questions and questions about your resume. Mostly very conversational. You tell them about your story, and they ask you challenging questions from there.

    Internship Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Went to my school's accounting night and talked to PwC alumni and associates of my school. Gave my resume to the HR person that night and I also applied online through my school's job/internship website. About a week later I got an email stating that I was invited to a pre-interview dinner and then an on-campus interview the day after the dinner. The pre-interview dinner is completely optional (and also paid for. Free food, YAY!) however everyone who is invited should attend it. it helped me ALOT and made me become much more comfortable the day of my interview. After the dinner, the next day I had a 1 on 1 interview with a tax partner who was an alumni of my school. The interview was mainly behavioral for the first half and then conversational the rest. Overall it was easy. About 3 weeks later I got a call back for a 2nd interview. The 2nd interview consisted of a 30 minute meet and greet and three 1 on 1 interviews with a partner, director, and manager at the PwC site location. All of the interviews were behavioral as well and then utlimatley led to the rest of the interview being conversation. I received a call back for an offer about 4 hours after my interview. My advice? Know your resume like it's your life. Pull out examples from past experiences, and also use STAR techniques to create stories to answer the behavioral questions! Also, smile, dress well and be confident! PwC's 2nd interview are also there to determine whether or not if you fit their culture. Be prepared to ask LOTS of questions because literally, half of time in each interview they asked me questions and then the other half I had to ask them. Just pray that they talk for a long time!

    Interview

    Your first have to directly apply for the program. It normally takes 2-3 weeks to hear bak from them to determine whether you have gotten the first round of interviews. Normally this is a one-to-one. It normally takes place in your college's career center. The second round is at the PWC offices and may be with multiple people at once

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I went the explorer day a few months back and I used this opportunity to talk to as many employees I could. A few weeks later I received a phone call inviting me to a superday. Fast forward to the day of the superday, I kept in touch with my recruiter and talked to multiple people in the firm.
    Upon arrival, all the candidates and I were all greeted and given breakfast. After an information session there was a panel of employees who answered any questions we had. We were soon divided and given a companion to walk us to each interview. I had two interviews, one with a director then a partner. I did well because of prior interview experience and preparation time i put in. After my interviews, we were taken out to lunch and then sent home. I received a call two hours with an offer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Office where there were alumni from my university where much more receptive to me, and vice versa. If you're not from one of their "core" schools then you can forget it.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer asked many questions about my resume, but the most unexpected was just about me. He asked, "what do you like to do?" which is a very simple question but it caught me off guard. I would just try to be personal and not so serious and rigid.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I contacted my campus recruiter at our job fair about this Internship, and she in turn told me how to apply. After applying for this Internship, I had an initial interview on campus. I knew the recruiters on campus well so that Interview was more like a conversation and getting to know me, with only a couple questions asked. After this initial interview, I interviewed in the office of my preference. This interview was very difficult, with 3 back to back 45 minute interviews with a partner, a manager, and an associate.
