Interview Details – Was selected through on-campus recruiting. PwC had a formal dinner the day before the interview where you could ask questions to current employees. Very professional.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – Office where there were alumni from my university where much more receptive to me, and vice versa. If you're not from one of their "core" schools then you can forget it.
Interview Question – The interviewer asked many questions about my resume, but the most unexpected was just about me. He asked, "what do you like to do?" which is a very simple question but it caught me off guard. I would just try to be personal and not so serious and rigid. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – I contacted my campus recruiter at our job fair about this Internship, and she in turn told me how to apply. After applying for this Internship, I had an initial interview on campus. I knew the recruiters on campus well so that Interview was more like a conversation and getting to know me, with only a couple questions asked. After this initial interview, I interviewed in the office of my preference. This interview was very difficult, with 3 back to back 45 minute interviews with a partner, a manager, and an associate.
Interview Question – How do you ask someone you don't know for help? Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied through my university and received documents to be filled out online two weeks later. I was then called for an initial phone screen one week after that. The questions were pretty general like when will I have completed 150 credits and if I plan to pursue a CPA license. A week later I scheduled a phone interviewed that lasted about thirty minutes.
Interview Question – Why do you prefer audit over tax? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2013.
Interview Details – First went through on campus recruiting. Met with a manager from PWC and was very conversational interview. Asked about teamwork examples (bad team players, how you handled situation, etc). Received a call for a second round interview about 4-5 days afterwards. The super day kept being pushed back because they wanted all the candidates to be in the office at the same time. Was pushed back about 3 weeks to late November.
Superday started with breakfast, a HR manager presentation and then a panel with 2 young associates. Make sure to ask a question ( I asked about opportunities for international travel). Next I had 3 consecutive interviews starting with the manager, then director and lastly managing director. The manager asked the most technical questions ( Why Pwc, why tax, how do you manage time, work late + manage course load, team work, etc). The director was very laid-back and talked about the social aspect, sports teams that PWC can offer. Maybe asked 1 question off my resume regarding previous internship. Lastly was the managing director. Asked several questions about why accounting, why my school and why tax. Make sure to speak about at least one relevant accounting issue related to your position with the partner. This will set you apart from other candidates and the partners will love it that you did some outside research. Overall process was simple. Interviewed wendesday and heard back Monday for an offer in NYC office.
Interview Question – Why accounting? Why Tax? Why Pwc? Give examples of how you managed extensive course load/job/ school at once. View Answer

Interview Question – Very laid back interviews (all behavioral), the only real question they asked was "Why PwC?" Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.
Interview Details – I got in contact with a recruiter. We did a preliminary interview before I interviewed with a partner. Then on the Super Day I interviewed with several partners. The whole interview process was long but very easy going in the beginning. Towards the end the interviews got to be a little more nerve racking.
Interview Question – "Tell me a situation in which you had to..." Scenario questions are the most difficult. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None for the start internship.
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – I was first invited to an on-campus interview. It consisted of many behavioral questions and as always, they will end with "do you have any questions for me?" After this, I was called in for an in-office interview. This process took half the day, 8am-3pm, which starts off with a presentation by the recruiters, 3 consecutive 30 minute interviews by higher ups (managers, senior managers, partners), and then lunch. The interviews also consisted of behavioral questions. Honestly, I think to get into the national leadership program, you needed the second round interview. If they were just thinking of accepting you for local, you would receive the offer right after the first round. This is just my speculation.
Interview Question – There really are none. All questions were just normal, behavioral questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Just given the offer.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.
Interview Details – Submitted resume through online system within my college, received an email indicating I was able to get to the first round interview. First round interview consisting of a pre-reception dinner at my school and the following morning was the 30-45 minute interview. It was a very accommodating process and it more of a conversation. Then, I was emailed saying that I received an onsite interview which consisted of lunch, one case interview, and two additional interviews. It was a long day, but all of the employees and recruiters were very welcoming. The case was a bit difficult, but they were very understanding with it. There was also 45 minutes allotted before the case interview to review questions PwC had for you to answer. Overall, nothing was too difficult and I thought it was a smooth process.
Interview Question – Nothing was too unexpected, just make sure to read the case overview before you get there and know a little something about the industry that it is discussing. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation for an internship
