    Interview

    I applied through on campus job fair and on campus website. Two days after the deadline, I got an email from their campus recruiter for the first round on-site interview. I was interviewed by a partner for the first round, he was very laid back and pretty much just went over my resume. There was no particular questions and more like casual conversation.Then 2 weeks later, I got invited for the second round interview, which was 2 back to back interview. I had with a partner and a manager. Partner was very laid back, and asked me that if there was anything I would like to talked about in my past working experience. Manager's question was focused on the 5 PWC professionals, which was on their website.

    Tax Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The initial screening took place at my university. We had an event, what some might refer to as a "career fair," and "coffee chats." I found the recruiters be friendly initially and then to be cold and uninviting.
    I had an interview with a partner from PwC. The partner was extremely kind and alumni of my university.
    Before my second interview, I had an unpleasant experience with a recruiter.
    My second interview was virtual with another partner. I found this interview to be uncomfortable, because I was unable to read my interviewers cues. Based on the instructions given by PwC recruiters interviewees are to look into the camera to maintain eye contact...this was really awkward. Maybe the awkwardness of the virtual interview could have been avoided if I had angled my screen differently.

    30 mins, on the phone. not much to it really. my interviewer went straight into asking questions. What I found rather odd was that she was interviewing for someone else's team. She, she did not know much about the work and projects of the other team.
