    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at PwC (Stamford, CT (US)).

    Interview

    This was the fastest process of the Big4. I applied online through my university and was selected for an online interview with a partner for the firm. It was 30 minutes and he just wanted to get to know me and also ask about some situations that I had gone through so far in college. I was notified a few days later that I had been selected to attend the conference. Very simple.

    Winter Audit Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Stamford, CT (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school and did the Superday at PwC. 3 - 30 minute interviews with a senior associate, HR, and a partner. Very easy going and conversational. The senior associate asked the most questions and surprisingly the partner asked the least. A good portion of time was spent with me asking them questions. Overall it was very easy as long as you are prepared. I think the key to nailing these interviews is going in ready to tell your story and try to set yourself apart from the other candidates in some way. These are real people looking for interesting new candidates that bring a unique perspective to the table. Show them.

    The interview went great. But limited to my status, I didn't get the offer. The interviewee seemed really like me but the site seems like they cannot sponsor a visa for international student, so I got rejected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Stamford, CT (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    the reviews were very nice i talked to three different people with three different levels of experience and positions in the firm they were all very personable and interesting to talk to though there is kind of a careerism air to the younger people but i suppose that's to be expected the older folks were more even-keeled and didn't seem to be trying as hard i guess overall extended experience in public accounting makes people down to earth and even keeled because otherwise they would've left or inflicted harm on themselves before reaching that poitn
