Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (McLean, VA).

Interview

Contacted via phone and email by recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was schedule and the the recruiter called me as scheduled, however seemed unprepared: searched for a few minutes for the details of the position and who I was referred by before submitting the application, had not reviewed my resume based on comments to responses to the questions. Worst experience of a recruiter representing the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very rigorous interview, you would think I was interviewing for an Executive level. All behavioral questions (15), I believe they wanted me to fail, however, I answered all to the best of my ability. I sensed from the start of the interview, they had already selected the candidate and this interview was a formality.

    I was an experienced hire so the interviewers focused on fit within the group. It has been a long interview process as PwC wants to make sure that you are the right fit.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Tampa, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Almost like clockwork, I heard from PwC every 10 days to schedule the next interview. Everyone was uber professional along the way.

    Three phone interviews (recruiter, Sr Manager, Director), two in person (same Sr Manager, Managing Partner). All were mainly conversational in nature, describing current and perceived role of the area being interviewed for. I was advised that - in the hiring process - they preferred more junior candidates at Manager or below.

    While I received nothing but positive feedback, was ultimately rejected by a recruiter with no explanation. I requested constructive feedback, received none.

    I left this experience thinking there a certain type of candidate they're looking for...and - despite credentials - was not it. A shame, as the person who referred me is a wonderful ambassador for the company.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Way too many interviews! I had 6 interviews before getting to the partner, only to have him tell me i needed to interview with someone else. There seemed to be a disconnect between the staff and and the upper management - in the Assurance group. The whole process left a bad taste in mouth. I decided to join somewhere else...

    Interview Questions

    • each person interviewing had their own approach. the questions were open ended. each interviewer had a different sense of what they were looking for in the position. the whole process was unorganized.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ask for what you want ahead time. After the fact it's hard to negotiate unless you have leverage.
