Very Difficult Interview

Summer Assurance Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

Interview Details The interview process started through campus recruiting. My first interview was a one-on-one interview with a manager and all conversational, with very basic questions about my resume. It lasted 30 mins. The second interview was the in-office interview where they flew me up to NYC. They were with a partner, a senior manager and manager. They all lasted 30 mins.

Interview Question – During the in-office visit, the questions were all behavioral. I didn't feel like they were trying to get to know me at all. They would start out with a basic question and continue to ask every detail about it. For instance they asked me "What do I do to organize my life?" I said keep a planner. Then they asked "How many lines do I have written in the planner a day?" "How many lines do I complete a day?" They also asked "Why does a soda can has a lip around the edge"   Answer Question
