    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I initially was recognized at a career fair where they marked my resume as one for consideration. My first interview was on campus and was strictly behavioral where all they wanted to know was about my history and what I was looking for at PwC. The second interview was at PwC and they had me meet with an associate, a manager, and a partner. Each interview was behavioral. All they wanted to know was if my personality fit with the company and the people working there. I was contacted shortly after the interview and they let me know they wanted me as an intern.
