    The position was for M&A advisory. First round was on Campus, mostly behavioral.

    (2) Most satisfying project at work

    Final round was at their Chicago office. The case was sent 48 hours earlier. We were all huddled in to a room and asked to prepare presentations on hard copy paper slides based on a set of questions about the case they gave at that time.

    After that there were 3 rounds of interview. 2 behavioral and 1 for the case presentation.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    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.
    The hiring process was multi phased, first round of behavioral interview on college campus, once selected they will ask people to come to their office for further rounds of interview.

    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    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.

    Advisory Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straight forward. It took a few weeks for the whole process to complete but I applied on campus and had a final round. The people are really nice and that's the main thing they emphasize, the fit to the organization. However, be very explicit in what group you are interested in and articulate that clearly.

    Interview Questions
    • Actually, nothing here at all. The most difficult one was tell me about how you solve problems. There are more concerned with getting to know you.   Answer Question
