    Interview

    I had a skype interview and then was invited to the Super day. There I had three separate interviews, got a tour, and had lunch with 2 associates. The questions were not too hard. Based on what they said it was going to be reflected around.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I applied through a special link on my university's career database. I then filled out a fairly extensive online application, as well as submitted unofficial transcripts. About 2 days later, I received an email asking me to schedule a video interview via Google Hangouts. The campus recruiter I spoke with was very professional and easy to talk to; this initial interview lasted about 30 minutes, most of which was spent talking about past experience. There were also a couple behavioral questions asked. He told me I would hear back in about 4-5 weeks. 10 days later, a campus recruiting manager called to let me know I would advance to the next round, which would be another video interview with a Tax Partner. She confirmed basic info, including that I would be at 150 credit hours before the start of employment, and gave me tenative dates for interviews & post-hiring events.

    About 2 weeks after that, I received an email asking me to schedule my partner interview. The partner interview was mostly behavioral questions, but there were a couple technical ones as well. Be sure to do your research on PwC, the culture, day in the life, etc. Come prepared with questions that aren't basic. The partner interview lasted just over 30 minutes. The next day, the campus recruiting manager I'd been working with called me to confirm that PwC would extend an offer.

    I've had a few different interview experiences, mostly with large corporations, and never have I seen the entire process handled so gracefully and professionally. The fact that PwC, and especially the Campus Recruiting team, manages to do this when there are so many different parties involved speaks highly of them as a company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    My first interview was on campus. I talked to an Manager. It was very conversational. Then I got invited for a Super day in NYC. I was put in a hotel overnight. It was three interviews and a presentation on the company. MAKE sure you pay attention in the presentation because a Partner will ask you a question on the 5 sections of an PwC professional. One interview was with a Senior Associate and the other two was with Partners. One Partner plays bad cop. I received an offer 2 hours later via phone.

    Interview

    The entire hiring process took about 2 months. I applied for the position the beginning of December. A few days later, they sent me a test to see my knowledge on Microsoft Office. Once I passed the test, PWC set up a meeting over the phone so I can speak with one of the recruiters. She was very nice and asked about my skills, and we went over my resume. When the call was over, she gave me an interview date to come to the Hilton Hotel, the interview was scheduled for the beginning of January. I checked in and spoke with one of the recruiters. Then, I asked her many questions about the role and PwC. On that same day, they told me I was hired. I expressed previously, it took about 2 months because of the hiring paperwork. Anyways, always talk about your teamwork experiences and time management skills.
