    Risk Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Two back to back interviews. One behavioral and one case. Behavioral was very relaxed and a much more open opportunity for me to explain who I am and why I am a good fit for the firm. The case was based on a real scenario the firm went through prior and was related specifically to risk. Overall wonderful interview experience and great people to meet! Unfortunately, the program accepted primarily more STEM majors than business majors so that is why I did not receive an extended offer.

    Risk Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for an advisory internship in another office but didn't get that for some odd reason. Asked if I'd like to be considered for the assurance position I said sure. Interviewed with a manager and it was mostly behavioral and asked questions related to my resume. Next it was a final round with a MD. Really simple process as they really needed somebody for the position. I had 3 other offers so they were really trying to get me to come. Offered to let me come to the office so I could meet the team and they could take me out to lunch. The MD, manager, and another associate all reached out to me separately while I was trying to make my decision. I appreciate the effort, but I think they should relax a little.

    Reasons for Declining

    I've always heard that PwC was stuck up and it proved to be true during these two interview processes I went thru (advisory first then assurance). Ultimately I decided to go with Accenture: much more competitive offer and a way better security role.
