    Interview Details

    I applied through the school's career service and got an on-campus first-round interview. Purely behavioral, pretty standard interview. Interview questions are like why consulting, why PwC, where do you see yourself in 5 years, and what specific consulting division you want to work in. So make sure that you research the company well and have a concrete career plan with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • What has been a time that you persuaded a group. What has been a time that you failed.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The process was well organized. Not to difficult to get an offer coming from a good state university. GPA is key to getting interview. Behavioral questions are common during interview. Attended a 2 day leadership event which was helpful in getting an offer. Did not apply to any other accounting firms.

    Interview Details

    There was a pre interview dinner first. Then, there was the on-campus interview the next morning. All in all, the whole process was nothing too special. As for the interview itself, it was pretty conversational and relaxed. They didn't grill me with weird behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Just know the usual "why accounting?" and "why audit/tax/risk assurance?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Don't waste your time; find a company that will make a hiring decision. These people really have no clue as to how to run a company, let alone make hiring decisions. I'm working for Deloitte because of it, and you know what, PWC did me a favor! Trust me, I'd love to hear from others who experienced the same incompetent recruiting process, because I'm sure there are many!
