FAS Advisory Interview

FAS Advisory
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – On campus interview with a mix of behavior and technical questions. The interviewer asked about the part I wanted to discussed the most on the resume without asking to introduce myself. He asked some behavior questions about my experiences and built technical questions on top of that.

Interview Question – Technical questions are basic finance questions, but they can be tricky.   Answer Question

Client Strategist Senior Associate Interview

Client Strategist Senior Associate
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC in April 2014.

Interview Details – A recruiter reached out to me via email for an updated resume and then called me within a few hours. He asked what I did on a day to day basis and how I came across the position. Two days after this phone call, he emailed me to schedule an on-site interview with 2 of the leadership positions on site. I met with them and we talked about my resume and what I liked about the job. They asked a lot of questions about my current position and a lot of hypothetical questions and how you would solve problems such as "what would you do if the account team isn't responding to you?" I was a little frustrated because they would ask questions and if they didn't like my answer, they would ask the question again. I felt a little bit like they have answers that they want to hear and if they don't hear it right away they stop listening. The culture is WAY different than what my recruiter said on the phone.

Also, they looked at my LinkedIn and took what was on it very seriously so make sure your LinkedIn is polished.

Interview Question – Alot of questions about technical writing experience, why I like relationships and sales. Lots of "how would you handle x" questions as well   Answer Question

Elevate Interview

Elevate
Irvine, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2014.

Interview Details – Both interviews were very relaxed. A bunch of behavioral questions, then you go out to eat in the second round. I had bad luck and got a bad interviewer for the second round who asked a bunch of hard questions, but other people said that it was supposed to be a conversational type of interview so don't sweat too much.

Interview Question – Asked me consulting questions (even though I'm not going to consulting), so logic questions.   Answer Question

Art Director Interview

Art Director

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – How is it possible that a person with over 15 years of Art Direction experience receive a letter stating, "after reviewing your qualifications and experience against the requirements of the Art Director position, we can not progress your candidacy to the next stage."

Interview Question – I question this because there must be others receiving interesting responses.   Answer Question
