Advice to Potential Interns

Learn that is not always about the work but the people that are doing the work.

Sample Interview Questions

Why did you choose public accounting? What are you looking for in a career? What skills do you possess that would make you a good addition to PwC?

Advice to Management

Send less emails and with the emails that are sent out, have items numbered for interns to follow. Make it easier so that things are not missed. Have ambassadors picked before weeks into the internship. Training would be better if the room had windows.

Would You Recommend

Motivating, Exciting and Professional

4.4 of 5 stars

Stamford, CT | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I liked the opportunity to directly engage with the department I was assigned to. I enjoyed the fast pace of the office because it made me more time efficient and productive. Despite working in Stamford, CT I had the opportunity to work in the New York office by attending meetings, intern events and trainings.

Downers

I disliked not having as many opportunities to shadow professionals in the different lines of services at PwC

Advice to Potential Interns

You have to define what you want to get out of the internship and then evaluate how PwC best fits those standards in terms of training, mentorships, shadowing opportunities and future career paths.

Sample Interview Questions

What is a weakness of yours?



What was a difficult time you faced and how did you overcome it?

Advice to Management

PwC could adjust the intern salary to match that of EY. Also PwC could make the training include more technical skills. In addition to career development, the interns should also have a clear view of what is the role of each line of service.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Busy Season

4.3 of 5 stars

Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects were meeting the other interns, and getting valuable hands-on audit experience.

The worst aspects were the cramped work space and extremely long hours.

Downers

The long hours- about 16 hours per day.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is difficult to adjust to the long work hours and culture, but you learn so many valuable skills in such a short period of time. Never hesitate to ask questions because the PwC staff is so eager to help you.

Sample Interview Questions

1) Tell me about a time where you had to work in a group that you did not like.

Advice to Management

Provide more frequent performance feedback.

4.4 of 5 stars

Boston, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The team that I worked with, the fun we had traveling, the experience I got during busy season.

Downers

There were times that the long hours were very grueling and it did get somewhat tiring to be traveling all the time.

Advice to Potential Interns

Keep a positive attitude and soak it all in. Sometimes things take a few days to really make sense. Nobody expects you to know everything. Just try your best and ask questions (I tried to save a few questions at a time to ask) and keep your head up. They will be impressed if you keep a positive attitude and strong work ethic. Be willing to learn.

Sample Interview Questions

A lot of the questions dealt with my prior experience and resume experience. Other questons included how I would react to long hours and strenous work environment.

Advice to Management

I would say it would have to be work-life balance for travel clients. One night a week we should leave early (or leave early on Friday's).
