Senior Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer

Interview

I met with several people, some covered technical aspects of the job and others covered soft skills. Pretty easy interviews if you knew what you were doing. I interviewed with people who I ultimately reported to, as well as one stakeholder who was more tangential to the role I am in now.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Tampa, FL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Phone calls primarily. Never had an in-person interview. First spoke with recruiter, then senior leaders, then the hiring manager. After speaking with her, I was offered the position three days later. A total of about 6 interviews all over the phone before the offer was extended. They waited about 2 weeks after the last interview to extend the offer. I countered their offer by 2% but they declined.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I have previous consulting experience, so I talked with several partners and directors besides HR. All but one meeting was via webcam, which I do not prefer. However, all the discussions were pleasant and informative. They seemed interested in learning about my background and experience and answered my questions thoroughly.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone with in-house recruiter, then a technical interview over the phone, followed by 4 face-to-face interviews in New York. The technical interview was somewhat basic, focusing on OOP principles, design patterns, and XML. There seemed to be an emphasis on whether I knew people who already worked at the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC in February 2013.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume for an open position on the PwC web site. I was initially contacted by a recruiter by phone to schedule a phone interview. When we conducted the call, the recruiter was very professional and pleasant. She gave an overview of the practice area and the position, then asked fairly typical questions, like - "Please give an overview of your career up to this point." Along the way, she asked for additional detail on specific experiences that were most relevant. When we concluded the call, she let me know that she'd speak with the hiring manager(s) and get back to me with an update. It took a little longer than she expected (~ 2 weeks) to get the information she needed, but she was very good about staying in touch with me in the interim. Ultimately, she called and sent an email message to let me know that the position had changed and I wouldn't be considered going forward. Overall, the whole process was handled very professionally.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview with the local partner followed by interview with regional lead partner. A painless experience - more of a conversation than an interview, emphasising personality fit, drive, motivation and intellectual rigour. No unnecessary repetition of your CV or "Give me an example of when..." type questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Canberra (Australia)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Through extenuating circumstances, I ended up conducting 6 interviews with a combination of other senior managers, directors and partners. The interview process combined competency-based questions, psych testing, one-on-ones, etc. Throughout the process I was kept well informed and the people I met along the way reinforced my desire to join the company - they were all smart, driven, professional yet personable.
