    Interview Details

    I got the interview from campus recruiting. The questions are all about behavior questions and based on resume. The campus interview is with a senior manager and she took many notes when I was talking. I think the process is really very selective in my school.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus site and had an initial behavioral interview. Got invited to a final round a week later in Chicago that had two more behavioral interviews and a more presentation style case interview. They were really helpful in getting your questions ask and several people reach out to you to help answer any questions. Be prepared to have several questions to ask before the interview.

    The interview was completely behavioral. No single technical question was asked. Questions were like what was your favorite project ans why, how did you motivate team members, how did you stand for your values, what was your most troublesome or non-favorite project.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Campus interview. Chatty interviewer. Didn't stop to ask any questions but keeps talking about his team and felt like that he's not expecting no answer. One asian girl got hired for internship but she was fired within trail period after full-time started. He was looking for sheep, should've zipped and listened and nodded like that girl.

    Regulatory Compliance Assocuate Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    There were four interviews with four directors over the course of the day and then a final discussion with their internal recruiter. Each interview was 30-45 minutes long. If you are out of school, or transitioning, I would advise trying to apply or interview closer to the summer months as you'd have a better shot of being in the summer training program. Having something interesting on your resume is key because there is only so much experiental material you can discuss. You really need to differentiate yourself.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on my school's career website. Got an on campus interview about a week later. Interviewed with a director in risk assurance. Half an hour. He was a lot more technical than expected since other interviews I had seemed more conversational. Wasn't the friendliest guy, not typical of other people I met from PWC.
