    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied online via careers website. Had phone interview with someone from Talent Acquisition, interview was for 45mins. A lot of behavioural questions, I think the interview could be cut shorter and questions asked were repetitive in nature.

     Was scheduled for in-person interview the following day, person from PWC Talent Acquisition was very responsive and accommodating to my schedule.

    Met with Hiring Manager the following week and interview was nothing formal more of a conversation, which made me very relaxed and provided a highly positive experience. I guess that is why telephone interview is so long, try to get the HR crap out of the way.
    I received a tour of the office and I was on my way.

    Talent person followed up the next day in regards to how the interview went and I am currently awaiting to hear back from them.

    Senior Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Standard procedures, phone interview with HR, then face-to-face with 2 managers, then final with a partner.
    It seems like they are more interested in hiring fresh grads. They challenge a lot on people who are from corporate environment, which I think it was a little uncomfortable since corporate also have smart professionals, but to me, they pre-judged you that you cannot do the job right. And towards the end, it just seems like the job itself is different from what's actually on the description.
    Just be yourself in the interviews and be confident.
