I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in February 2013.

Senior Associate - Advisory Intern - Hourly Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – All behavioral interview until the second round where there was a case. Even then the case material was provided in advance so you can prepare. Very professional interview and recruitment process. Wined and dined candidates from top 15 MBA schools. The communication process could be sped up a bit. It took a week to hear back results.
Interview Question – The case was a stress test situation. How you answered appeared to be more important than what you answered. View Answer

Associate Intern - Advisory Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC in February 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed for an internship through my university’s on campus recruiting process. First step was a resume drop. Then first round interviews were conducted on campus: 30 min long, all fit, no cases. Interviewer was great, she was on her way from South Carolina to NYC and stopped in Philly to help interview for the day. After that came second round interviews: I was flown to Atlanta for a half day SuperDay. I was in the afternoon session. First, we had lunch, then half went to their interviews while the other half watched a PwC brand video and had a Q&A with current employees. Then, we switched. There were 3 interviews, each 30 minutes, and all with senior staff – one manager, one director, and one partner. After the interviews and Q&A we had a brief tour of the office before heading to the airport. Dress code was business casual – slacks, and button down, optional tie; or suit with no tie.
Interview Question – Not really anything too unexpected. Just make sure to establish rapport with the interviewer, and ask good questions about the firm - express your interest in them. Answer Question

HIA Associate Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – I found out of this position through a professor who was contacted by a recruiter for possible students that would be interested. I did not go through a phone screening or first-round campus interviews. I was invited to the Chicago office for a two day event which consisted of a dinner with the recruiter and some partners and associates on Day 1 and on Day 2, which started at 8:30am, we had a welcome introduction, 2 back-to-back behavioral interviews lasting about 45 mins each, a panel discussion time for Q&A, and then a lunch which concluded the event at 1pm.
Interview Question – If you were ever placed in a position or task that you felt uncomfortable doing or didn't have enough experience to perform it to expected ability, would would you do? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Salary negotiations for an internship aren't really necessary.
Audit Associate (Intern) Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in May 2010.
Interview Details – PricewaterhouseCoopers was a really good experience interview wise. I interviewed with 3 different people throughout the day. From a manager to a partner. Everyone I interviewed with allowed a flow of conversation and they gathered their information from that. There were no difficult questions to answer, but they did expect YOU to ask questions. So do so! My main suggestion is to not be shy, don't drink too much (the night before), and be genuinely interested in the conversations you're having.
Don't worry about technical questions (at an intern level) and make sure to socialize and thank everyone you meet.
Interview Question – Why does PwC appeal to you? Answer Question
Audit Associate (Intern) Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2008.
Interview Details – I had an on-campus interview and at that point requested to work in the NYC office, versus the local Denver office. The on-campus interview went well and the recruiter referred me to the NYC office. The company flew me out to NYC and I had an all-day interview process where I interviewed with a Managing Director, a Partner and an HR manager. I heard back that I was offered a position a few days later through a phone call.
