PwC Tax Intern Works on Real Clients
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I did work on real clients that allowed for me to view several different nuances of the tax perspective of a business. Actually getting to prepare tax returns for a couple types of business and individuals helped to broaden my knowledge and strengthen my skills in the field of tax accounting.


Downers

I didn't like the training conference we had; I felt it was too high level and more based on the technology we used. Even after the training I learned the skills better and learned more on the job than at the training.


Advice to Potential Interns

You will be working on real life situations/clients and gain a great experience through the people you work with. Be willing to learn and ask questions, because its easier to work with everyone when you are willing to gain more knowledge.


Sample Interview Questions

What word best describes you? What kind of person are you?


Advice to Management

The Columbus office had a problem with employee retention, but I feel that they have taken care of it even before I left, by hiring a couple new employees to the staff.

Great look into what a tax professional does at a big 4 accounting firm.
Charlotte, NC | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best part of the internship was that I got a look into what work really looks like. I didn't get a prettied up version of what I would be doing and so I was able to truly evaluate whether I would want to work for PwC.


Downers

I felt that the internship was a little short and I didn't get to do as much work as I wanted.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would encourage future candidates to talk to as many people as possible about their experiences at the company because everyone has a different perspective.
