    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Process overall was smooth. One of the most professional and responsive recruiter I have worked with. Kept me updated on each step and provided adequate feedback.
    All three folks from PWC who interviewed me where respectful and fun to talk to. Although I was initially nervous, their positive attitude put me at ease quickly. All the interviews felt like discussions rather than interviews.

    Tax Associate Tax Core Services Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied on the website through campus, waited for 1 month to get the first interview. First interview was a 15’ phone interview ( mine was like 10’) since the interviewer was late). It is hard to judge a candidate through 15’ phone call and decide whether to move forward. I got an email 2 weeks later stated that they can’t move me forward.
    Pretty disappointing because I really like the company.
