Assurance Intern Interview

Florham Park, NJ (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details Initially applied through my school's career services website, and was invited for an on-campus interview shortly after. The interview was pretty conversational. I was only asked two questions directly, and they were both easy ones. The partner I interviewed with was most interested in hearing me talk about my resume directly rather than answering behavioral questions. About a week after my campus interview I received a call from the recruiter inviting me to Superday.

Interview Question – Only two questions, rest of interview was conversation. 1. Tell me about a time when someone in your team was not pulling their weight, and how did you deal with it.
2. Tell me about a time you were not able to meet a deadline.
