    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    I applied through their website, went through a phone interview, then got asked to come into the office. The office visit went pretty well. There were two rounds of interviews one was with a partner in the firm and the second was with a senior associate. The questions asked were behavioral questions and then the interviewers opened up the floor for you to ask them questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Two behavior internviews with campus recruiters, one manager, and a partner. The individuals who interviewed me were very easy to get along with and I actually ended up talking about our common interests. This made it seem like i was actually not being interviewed, making time go by fast.

    Typical campus interview then second round interview with an office visit. Interviewed with a manager, senior manager, and a partner revolving around their three pillars. Pretty much all behavioural and very little about my background.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then was contacted by a recruiter (in a different location, my school did not have a recruiting program). For some reasons, I could not contact the recruiter after the process (invalid email address and non-working phone number) and I just never heard back from her/the company.

    Risk Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through employee referral. Went into the Boston office for an interview with a partner, manager, and senior associate. The interview experience was about a half day from 9:00 to 2:00. Breakfast and a presentation in the morning, short tour, and then 3 half hour interviews. After that all of the candidates went to lunch with the hosts. Over all not a bad experience. I still haven't received an offer though and my interview was yesterday. So my hope is fading.

    Risk Assurance Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    One phone or on-campus interview with a recruiter, and then a chance at an office visit to interview with various partners and directors. The office visit questions were conversational in nature and designed to fuel a discussion, not a Q&A series. All of my interviewers were incredibly friendly despite some of them even being partners and national leaders doing interviews for internships! They really want you to receive as much information as you can about the company in order to make an informed decision should you receive an offer. Great experience and can't wait to work there.
