    Tax Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    1st round was on campus, was asked many behavioral interview questions. The main purpose is simply to get to know the candidate and see whether the candidate will be easy to work with. Sometimes the interview would just turn into a casual conversation if there are mutual interests.
    2nd round was in the office. Similar behavioral questions. Some interviewers followed a script of questions, other was more conversational.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Overall very professional and engaging. There was an initial interview at my school, and once I made it past that, the company brought me onsite for a 2 day process beginning with a mixer the night before the true interview day. On the interview day, I met with three partners who asked me a series of questions. It was a great experience.

    Application

    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.

    Interview

    I interviewed at my university. It was nothing special. The interviewer spent more time yawning than talking to me. He did not want to be there. Typical why did you pick this field, what do you like about accounting questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online as well as sent my application to an employee who I was connected with. The employee then submitted my application through their internal employee referral program. The recruiter called me based on the employee referral. Unsure if they matched it up to the independent application online.
