    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.

    Risk Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Tampa, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Simply applied online and received the email interview follow-up to schedule the first round interview. Their interviews are done through Google Hangouts video chat. The interview questions were all experience related and I was asked for examples of when I solved issues, had things go wrong, etc. This interview was probably 15 minutes. I was selected for the second interview with a partner and a senior, back to back. I interviewed with the partner and we mainly talked about what I was up to at school, about the department and some brief experience questions. Much more laid back than the first round interview. This interview was probably 30-45 minutes. The interview with the senior was probably 5 minutes, and I was asked about why I choose the school that I did, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was an on campus interview process with an alum from our school. Overall a positive experience though some difficult questions were asked. It was one-on-one and was considered the first round of the interview process. In order to make it to the super-day, you first had to get through this round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)) in October 2016.

    The process begins from when I gave out my resume. Then I got a call for a group interview in the morning. We were given a topic relavant to our field of study, then we were instructed to share and discuss our ideas about the topic. After that is the 1:1 interview, I was given a meeting with the Manager and the Director of the firm. I was given questions about my applied jobs and technical knowledge. After an hour, I finished my session and told to wait for the results. Next, I was given an email informing of the Assessment Test for ability confrmation. Finally, a scheduled English essay test is the last hurdle to overcome
