    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was recruited at a career fair on campus, and was invited to enroll in the elevate program. Once registered there was a date set for an initial interview and a social event the night before the interview to break the ice and interact with some employees. The interviewer was very friendly and questions were laid out logically and in a manner that was easy to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't say that any question was overly difficult. The most challenging one for me was "how do you react when you feel that team members are relying on you to do their work for them? give examples of what you would do or have done in that situation"   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended to PwC and a campus recruiter contacted me. I had one behavioral interview with HR and one behavioral interview with a senior employee. After getting approved by both interviewers, I was flown to the PwC office to have two behavioral interviews and one case study interview. I enjoyed the overall process and everyone was extremely friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • My most difficult question was in the case study interview. I was asked about an industry that I am not planning on working in and I did not have an answer.   Answer Question

    Case 48 hours in advance. Take significant time to prep, you can generally guess what the case question will be. I would recommend prepping the agenda and slides for the presentation in advance.

    Management/Risk Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview was primarily behavioral questions. Some background on my coursework and the standard "walk me through your resume" question. There were several scenario questions: "tell me about a time you X." It seemed like the big driver here was fit: could the candidate both do the work and have the right attitude? Hit those key points and you should be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Straightfoward campus recruiting process, with networking via campus events, resume drop, and interviews. Made it to the first round, but didn't get a superday. In my opinion at least, I was qualified for the position and had a decent interview (take it with a grain of salt of course). My interview was in a noticeably foul mood from the very start, telling me at a couple points not to answer his questions a certain way before I began talking. Asked me questions on irrelevant things (questions about my internships that had nothing to do with what I did), but I was able to answer them.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were all completely straightforward and generic.   Answer Question
