    Manager - Advisory Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty generic. One phone interview followed by a in person interview. I had 3 rounds of back-to-back interview. The interview process was good and the panel was very interactive.

    The nightmare started after the interviews when I was waiting for the decision. One week after the interview I received the call that all liked my profile and they would potentially make any offer. The decision was to be taken after discussions with the partner. I waited for 3 weeks but there was no communication. I emailed/ called the recruiting coordinator and she replied that she has no clue on the decision. I followed again with emails/ phone calls but there was no response. After another week of wait I received an email to my follow-up that the recruiting manager will call. Again the wait translated to another 2 weeks of anticipation. I again approached out with a follow up email and finally the recruiter called and shared that the decision to not make an offer.

    The real issue was the rationale that she gave for the decline contradicted with what she had shared in our 1 week after the interview discussion. Overall my experience was horrible with the recruiting team. The team didn't care to respect my time and took the liberty to prolong the decision. I would not recommend the firm based on my bitter experience with the recruiting team. For a consulting company this timeline is totally not acceptable.

    Senior Associate - Advisory Interview

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

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was quickly contacted by HR. After passing through the HR round (via phone) and a hiring manager round (via phone b/c she was located in a different city), I waited for a while. Finally, I heard from HR that I would be flown in for a final round of interviews. No explanation was given for why the interview would be done outside of the city I lived in and for which there were hiring.

    The position proved to not be a fit for either side. The interviewers were pleasant with the exception of the partner, who was probably the worst person with whom I've ever interacted professionally. This may have been his attempt at a "stress test" but I think it was predominantly just an arrogant personality. I asked what I considered to be thoughtful, informed questions but he was unable to answer them with any clarity or coherence.

    Interview Details

    There will be three interviews in a row, but none of them are exceptionally harsh. Mine took me about two hour. Case study throw people off their feet. It's might be easy for those who have previous relative experience. The interview schedule was uneasy for full credit student, especially if you have to fly over in a weekday.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    They grilled me about my grades. It was frustrating and insulting. Even if they love you at the interviews and events it's all about numbers to them at the end of the day.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was well-structured and they relayed information well. Applied through my university and got an invitation for an on-campus 1-on-1 interview, with a Top Golf Pre-Interview networking event the night before my Friday interview. Received an email the following Monday saying I got an office visit for that coming Friday. The interview consisted of 2 behaviorals and 1 case interview, for which you were given the case beforehand. Nothing too unexpected.

    I made it to the second round after an on campus interview. For the second round, I was invited to do an office visit. I was extremely disappointed by the visit. I did not like the culture at all. My interviews were very strict interviews, no conversation at all.
