    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Spent less than 4 weeks in the interview process and spoke with 4 individuals (managers) -one after another. Two provided positive feedback and hence I moved on to the next round with the final two individuals clearly disinterested in the whole process - one was yawning while I spoke.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through campus job board for entry level position. Had 2 rounds of interview: first round was on campus with line of service's director and second round with 2 managers and a partner at company's office in Chicago. The interviews were mainly about me, my experience and my interest in the company. Couple technical questions and behavioral questions. No case interviews. Very relaxed atmosphere, easy going people.

    Hiring process took long. After first round of interview I was invited for a second round in about a week. But after second round, the decision process took almost 6 weeks. As it turned out, my application was moved from entry level position to experienced position, and I ended up getting an offer for Senior Associate position.

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Very relaxed interviews in my experience. The firm wants to get a handle on your personality and whether you'll fit in. They seem to let your grades and involvement speak for themselves (based on a campus interview). Make sure you are well rounded with extracurriculars as the firm seems to like seeing that you can multitask which is very important on the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a situation where you had to deal with adversity and how you accomplished what you set out to do. Also, when working on a team, how did you deal with a team member who was unresponsive/poor/etc?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Little room for negotiation as a campus hire.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Quite intense interview process with use of day to day scenarios. Mostly competence based interview after the HR one. The partner review is more around how you fit into the team rather than competence.

    no real negotiation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Very straighforward interview. They are looking for specific experience at this level. I had two phone interviews (1 with HR, the next with an IT Audit Director), and then 3-4 interviews on site. They seem to move fast when they have an interest in you, but their response time seems alot slower if they decide to pass on your candidacy.
