    The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruitment.I had an initial interview on campus with a senior associate and was then invited to the NYC for super day.At super day, there was a briefing with the recruiting managers who were really nice and we were provided breakfast.We were paired with a "buddy" (associates who showed us around and took us to our interviews ) and I interviewed with 2 senior associates and a partner.All the interviewees went out to lunch with the buddies after the interviews and it was just a really good experience.I got a call on the evening of the interview from the partner I interviewed with telling me I got the offer and an official offer letter was sent a couple days after.

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting: consisted of pre-interview dinner reception which is a good place to meet employees in the division you're applying to, then on-campus interview the next day. Online campus interview was about 30 minutes long, which consisted of basic introductions, tell me about yourself a little bit, basic questions like why accounting/why tax, and can you tell me about X experience on your resume. Make sure to have questions prepared or ask questions during the interview. Then office visit included 3 interviews, one with a partner.

    People are weird at this firm. They only care about themselves and that's sad. I will never advise someone to work for a Big 4 if they want to enjoy a positive worklife.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The first step to the interview process is to apply to the university's recruiting network. Then from there you would have to do a supplemental application with the PwC's domain website. Afterwards you would be called back for a campus interview, which should take about 1-2 weeks after you submit your application and whether or not you applied at the beginning or the end of the period. When you pass the campus interview you would be asked to come and visit New York City which is a process that takes roughly 1-2 weeks as well! PwC is very timely when it comes to giving students responses on your interview steps. When you enter the office for the NYC interview your would be grouped together in small groups of like 3-4 and from there you would head out to a series of 3 interviews. One interview would be with a Partner, Sr. Manager and a Sr. Associate. This part was really fun it allowed you to get a glimpse into PwC's culture where you could evaluate the company and see if this is the right fit for you. Overall my experience was absolutely amazing and I truly enjoyed the experience.

    Interview Details

    There was a pre interview dinner first. Then, there was the on-campus interview the next morning. All in all, the whole process was nothing too special. As for the interview itself, it was pretty conversational and relaxed. They didn't grill me with weird behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Just know the usual "why accounting?" and "why audit/tax/risk assurance?"   Answer Question

    The on campus interview wasn't terrible, just behavioral questions. I heard about a week after that I was chosen to come in the office for an final round of interviews. When I came in NYC, it was an all day event and I interviewed with 3 people. It was a great experience and everyone was very nice.

    First round interview was just behavioral - 30 minutes. Difficult questions. Interviewer seemed like he did not care what I was talking about. This was from the Chicago office. Student from Northwestern. They took 20 for first round interviews out of 230 resumes.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the internship after a recruit visited my college. After receiving an invitation to interview, I attended the Pre-Night which really helped me to get to know the company and my interviewer. The next day, I attended my interview. It was very successful because I had already had the opportunity to meet with my interviewer the night before.
