    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Detroit, MI) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I started out by talking with the campus recruiter and attending a career fair. They called me the following day and said they were impressed with me. A few days later I got invited to a mixer on campus and an interview the following day. I talked with several people in the risk assurance department and both a manager and a partner. The following day the partner interviewed me however it was mostly just conversational, not traditional questioning. Later that day I got called to set up a second round interview/office visit at their office in Detroit. A week later I went there, had a great experience while they wined and dined us with a great tour of the city, its restaurants and an amazing hotel. The following day I interview with two partners, a manger and a panel of associates. The office visit ended with a lunch and guided tour of Ford Field. This process ended on a Friday and on the following Monday they called me and extended me an offer.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus with a Manager. Was just a conversation, with peppered questions about my resume.
    Superday was intense. 3 back to back 1:1 interviews, all with completely different styles. A manager, director then partner. My host, the one walking me around the offices, took me to lunch, but had a budget.

    Risk Assurance Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    2 rounds of interview for Big Four undergrad-level internships. The first one is at your school. The second one is in the office that you want to intern at - and this is usually a 7-hour ordeal. Before the second interview, you must go to a pre-interview dinner also.

    I would say PwC is very proud of it's #1 position in the market (in terms of revenue and how many of the Fortune 500 companies they audit).

    The HR/recruiting department is frustrating to work with (at least for SF's PwC). They don't answer your emails. For the SF office, the best recruiting is definitely Ernst & Young.

    it's only internship - no negotiating.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Started with a 1:1 on campus interview. Was extrememly casual and wanted to know about my life. Ended up getting invited to the office visit where I sat down 1:1 with three different people. A manager, director, and partner. Each of these were very easy once again, without a signle behavioral or technical question asked. Very friendly people just trying to get a feel for your personality and if you fit their culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your resume.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Don't think there's much you can do here. It's an internship afterall.
