    Audit Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interviews: first round strictly based on behavioural questions and the second round was composed of two parts - one on one interview with a partner which was purely conversational and a two on one portion which as also behavioural like the first round.

    I enjoyed the interview process and thought it was a great way to get to know more about the firm, their core values, and what they expect to see in people they want.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round was through campus interview. Basic behavioural questions. Nothing unexpected.
    The second round was on site professional talent centre includes 4 parts, which are group exercise, written report, partner interview, and office tour.
    Partner interview was the easiest one. Also behavioural questions and a chance you can ask questions. Just show your passion you will be fine.
    I failed in written part according to the feedback they gave. We are required to write a report based on given facts (8,9 pages) in half an hour. Grammar issues. sigh.. I believe they were testing your ability to filter necessary information from a bunch of facts and organize a report in limited time.
    Group exercise is not that hard I thought. All you need to do is sharing information and discussing just like the case you have in school.

    Still a valuable experience. Staff are professional and passionate.
    Not bad for my first official interview.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview consists of mainly behavioral and company questions. They are mainly testing to see if you are a good fit for the company. There are also a few on the understanding of the CPA process. They will ask "why" questions quite a bit: Why did you apply to PwC? Why this location? Why audit?The interviewers seemed borderline disinterested.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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    I had a panel interview, then got a call 4 days later that I was the chosen candidate Two hours later the offer was withdrawn (no fault of my own really, they just decided to go with someone "internal").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.

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

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.
