Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

Interview

Applied through campus recruiting and attended pre-interview night. The environment is friendly in general and could meet your interviewer for the next day. Met an unexpected small case in my interview, basically some market/revenue analysis with several graphs and numbers, not that difficult compared to MBA cases.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by HR and had an initial phone screen. It went well. Next, I spoke with a director. That interview also went well. Lots of good, core competency, behavior based questions along with several technical questions. Then came the third interview. The person doing the interview called an hour and a half past the scheduled time. No contact letting me know he'd be late. That interview lasted 5-10 minutes. He asked me to hold on multiple times, and was very distracted through the entire call. I didn't hear anything further for about a month, then I got a system generated email thanking me for my time. I will never pursue another job with pwc after being handled and treated this way.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    One round of on campus interview. Basically just the partner talking about the firm. A week later got invited on site. The interview started with a panel discussion, which is just a presentation of the company and the position. It was followed by 3 one-on-one interviews with partners or directors. The interviews are essentially behavioral, aka asking you about your experience. Got phone call about the result three days later.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a case interview even though the invitation said explicitly that the interviews will be behavioral.   3 Answers

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in January 2009.

    Interview

    Initial Interview was two half-hour interviews with two different managers. One was behavioral, the other was case-based. The case was from a book of a dozen or so cases and the interviewer tried to pick a case that matched with my background. Second interview was more involved. It started with coffee with 2 1-3 year consultants. There was 3 interviewees there. We talked for 45 minutes or so with them predominantly answering our questions. Then, we had 3, 1/2 hour interviews with various senior consultants/managers that were behavioral based. Some were well prepared, one I think hadn't even looked at my resume yet. The last part involved a 30-minute presentation by the HR person and then 2 other junior consultants answered more questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The first round was a telephonic round where you are asked a lot of questions about your current job role, responsibilities and interesting assignments. The second was a f2f round where again, you would be asked specifics of some interesting/relevant projects. Its here that you are asked a lot of questions about your CV and real-life examples/situations. You are also given a "feel" of the next round, which in most likelihood is a technical round. I am still in the process but must admit, the process is agonizingly slow.
