Tax Senior Associate
New York, NY (US)

The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in June 2014.

Interview Details Recruiters are highly responsive and don't leave you hanging unlike some other firms. Had a short conversation with recruiter followed by on-site interviews with four people. Recruiter was wiling to discuss other positions after telling me that I lacked sufficient experience for the position I had interviewed for. Overall pleasant experience.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details The communication with the PwC recruiter was very unprofessional. I did not feel like I was being addressed as a professional, and there was a general tone and attitude in all my communication with them.

Interview Question – What were you evaluated in your last evaluation at your employer?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Other candidates would really appreciate relevant details that affected your decision.

Tax Senior Associate Interview

Tax Senior Associate
Boston, MA (US)

The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in April 2011.

Interview Details I received an interview through my schools OCI program. I was flown to Boston where I interviewed with 1 Partner and 2 Directors. The interviews were informal and character based questions. Nearly 4 months have gone by, and I have not heard anything back, although I know the position was filled. It would have been nice to receive some kind of indication that an offer would not be made, after spending 2 days traveling back and forth to interview. Otherwise, the office was lovely, and the people seemed nice.
