    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Provo, UT) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 20 minute interview at my university. They came and did a dinner for all possible candidates. The interview was for 20 minutes and it was a good experience. They asked mostly behaviorally based questions, because the second interview is a case interview. There were a lot of people interviewing, and I think they like to interview a lot to get just a few people. It was very professional, but also reasonable. I was informed a week later of the decision.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The first round was a telephonic round where you are asked a lot of questions about your current job role, responsibilities and interesting assignments.
    The second was a f2f round where again, you would be asked specifics of some interesting/relevant projects. Its here that you are asked a lot of questions about your CV and real-life examples/situations.
    You are also given a "feel" of the next round, which in most likelihood is a technical round.

    I am still in the process but must admit, the process is agonizingly slow.
