    Audit Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very technical and boring. Didn't seem too interested in me as a person. Not as many behavioral questions which you would expect for an internship position. Asking for more experience when I am applying so that I can get experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Very straight forward and extremely smooth. I had an on campus interview first followed by a phone screening. I then had a superday out at the office where I met with a number of managers, directors, and one partner. They treated us extremely well, which helped me make my decision to accept the internship offer.

    Advisory Associate (MC) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Changed the order/process a bit this year for advisory (or at least in my region). Applied through PwC's website and my campus career's website for an on-campus interview. I was notified shortly after that I was selected for an interview. First round was a 90 minute case interview with a director (45 mins to prepare slides, 45 mins for presentation/ interview). The case was sent to me over email 48 hours before the interview. The 45 mins to prepare slides goes by quickly, so make sure to read the case carefully beforehand and prepare notes to bring in with you.

    Notified a week later that I had moved on to final round of interviews. This time the interview was conducted over skype. Much more behavioral and some fit questions relating to the five pillars of the PwC professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Several questions about group project dynamics, working with others-- "Describe a time..."   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I finished my first-round on-campus interview. The interviewer asked me many behavioral questions. I am waiting for my 2nd round schedule.
    The following questions were asked in my 1st round interview:
    Why tax? Why this office?
    Tell me a situation when you worked with a difficult person.
    Tell me when you worked in a group/leader role.
    Tell me a case when you didn't have enough information.
    ....
    There were more than those. The interviewer also asked me some follow-up questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Simple one-on-one Skype/phone interview for the PWC Elevate program with a Risk Assurance Partner. The interviewer began by introducing himself and the firm, then had a prompt of 3 questions that he asked everyone. The 3 questions only lasted 15 minutes or so; the majority of the interview was him talking. The interviewer was really helpful and responsive, didn't ask any technicals questions at all. Note that this interview was for the PWC Elevate program, not directly for the internship. Participating in the program then led to an internship offer.
