    Undisclosed Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I'm trying to remain as anonymous as I possibly can, but I should share my experience as a heads up for others.
    I had a panel interview, then got a call 4 days later that I was the chosen candidate Two hours later the offer was withdrawn (no fault of my own really, they just decided to go with someone "internal"). I did not do anything crazy, like quit my current job or anything, and I was not upset that I did not get the job, I just thought that the way they handled it was extremely unprofessional.

    I got a telephone interview for the National Leadership Conference for the Calgary Office.
    I prepared for the interview by researching the office and the work they do. I put a lot of emphasis on Audit and didn't talk as much about the conference. I am waiting for feedback from the interviewers to see where I could have improved.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty srtandard (Tell us about yourself? Why do you want to be a CA?) and i thought i did well, but i guess they were looking more at who fits the company and culture.   Answer Question

    Applied to PwC as part of the CA recruitment process. Received an interview offer. Interviewer was really friendly .

Was not offered a second interview , as I was totally unprepared for the tough behavioral questions that were asked

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Calgary, AB
    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview with a consultant was basic and gave me a favorable impression. They then flew me out to their Calgary location. The day consisted of an 1 on 1 interview with a senior partner, which was straightforward. There was also an office tour. The toughest portion was a group exercise with about 5 other interviewees where the task is to comb through a case study and provide a recommendation. They was a follow up written assessment where you have to summarize your findings.
