    It was very unfriendly. They did not try to make me feel comfortable and just asked questions off a sheet. They were writing my answers down which made it very awkward and the interview did not flow.

    Manager - Advisory Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The PWC interview process consisted of 2 phone screens (about an hour each) to understand and validate technology and work experience. I have a full-day interview that consisted of 1:1 interviews with 2 advisory managers and 2 partners. The interviewers asked detailed questions about work experience, and put me in situations and asked me to respond what I would do in those situations. Each session was very interactive where I was able to repond and ask questions as well. I also met with HR who gave me a great overview of the company, and details on the review process at PWC. Overall a pretty smooth interview process.

    Met with two Partners separately. Was asked questions about previous experience and was asked some basic behavior questions. They were interested in hearing not only about consultative background but my involvement in sales cycles and client continuity. Both interviews were very laid back and very low stress.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview after three weeks waiting on getting one, phone interview was completely about description of the job and also in my opinion getting a feel for the potential employee on how you interact with strangers over the phone. Then on to the face to face, very conversational during the one on one. It was about a four and half hour one on one with four different individuals.
