    • Pretty standard interview. Recruiter was just doing a run though the resume.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Went through university recruiting. Dinner beforehand, interview the next day. Questions were mostly standard with a few that I hadn't considered. I interviewed specifically within CIPS/TICE. Even though I reviewed before the interview I completely blanked on which was which during the interview. It didn't come up, but I would have liked to have touched on it. One interview was completely behaviorials, the other was personality/fit, however my interviewer asked one question and then talked at me the following 45 mins.

    • Behavioral questions. PwC has a new hiring spectrum so they ask a variety of behavioral questions to see if you're a good fit for the company.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Interns don't get negotiations but they pay really good in my opinion so I don't think a negotiation is required.
