Gain More Experience Than You Ever Expected

4.8 of 5 stars

Atlanta, GA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The other associates and partners at PwC made the internship experience the best fit for me. Everyone was so caring and willing to teach me and answer any questions that I ever had.

Downers

I disliked the busy season hours, but those hours are something that any other accounting firm, Big Four or not, would experience.

Advice to Potential Interns

PwC tries its hardest to match potential employees with the careers that will best fit them. The internship experience exposes you to many different clients within a chose line of service but also allows you to rotate into a different line of service if anyone finds themselves unhappy.

Sample Interview Questions

Why did you chose accounting as a major?

Have you had past accounting experiences?

Who at our office have you met through the recruiting process?

Why do you prefer tax/audit/etc.?

Advice to Management

PwC has very few issues or topics I would advise management on. Even in an extremely fast-paced working environment the firm is able to maintain respect for all of its diverse employees and clients. They also have maintained unlimited paid sick days for all employees as well as more than enough paid vacation time. PwC tries its hardest to help its employees and reward them for all of their hard work and long hours put in during busy season.

A Quality Learning Experience

Detroit, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I learned a lot about accounting as a career field, and I also really felt integrated with the teams that I was a part of during my time at PwC. I was always given work that had a level of importance in the grand scheme of the audit process.

Downers

I didn't like that we had 2 weeks of training followed by a week off and then 5 weeks of work. The 5 weeks comprised of 3 on one client and 2 on another. I didn't feel like 2 weeks on my second client was enough to really settle in and get to learn as much as I did on the first client, so I would have preferred to have forgone the week off in favor of 2 engagements of 3 weeks each.

Advice to Potential Interns

None particularly. A great characteristic of the firm is how transparent they are about everything.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Take a semester off from school and actually learn something!

Late hours

Advice to Potential Interns

You won't be fetching coffee, food, or copies here. There is an opportunity to perform first year associate tasks and provide real value to the firm. Great pay as well, with many opportunities for overtime.

Sample Interview Questions

There were not any technical questions. The interview was more of a discovery of your personality.

Advice to Management

Housing options for interns.
