    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. I really connected with all of my interviewers. PwC is really a people oriented work place. If they like you, you will get the job. The interview process took about 4 weeks. First was the an on campus interview with a director. The interview was mainly focused on leadership. I ended up talking about sports with my interview. I received an email the next week after to confirm an office interview. The office interview lasted from 8am -2pm. It had 2 behavioral interviews and one case interviews. My advice is to just really be yourself. You have plenty of time to prep for your case interview. Don't stress to much on the case interview but make sure you ask questions and have an idea of the questions you will be asked. The behavioral interviews were more conversations than interviews. PwC wants to see if they will enjoy working with you. I received an offer exactly a week after my office interviews.

    Interview

    Applied through my university. We were scheduled for 30 minute interviews. I spent the first few minutes talking about myself before the interviewers asked any questions. It was a pretty easy and low-key interview. The interview went smoothly and it was very conversational and we spent several minutes discussing the office dynamics and my role within the firm.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university and through PwC's website for the internship in December. I was offered an on-campus interview in January, and then a final round interview in February. From the time of the first interview on campus to the time of the offer, the process was 28 days long. The final round interview was the best experience I have ever had interviewing. They were extremely organized and made you feel comfortable between the personal host, the personable interviewers, and the enthusiastic HR team.

    In the final round interview called an office visit, there were two behavioral interviews and one case interview (each 45 minutes long). They give you the case 48 hours in advance and give you the official questions on-site. You have 45 minutes to draw up slides before you present. All three felt very conversational, which was something I really liked about the company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had 1 on campus interview (30 min) with the manager, and 3 interviews (20 min each) in the office. All of interviewers were very friendly and helpful. There were no technical questions about PwC or position that I applied for, only questions from resume or behavioral questions. Overall it was quite easy, as log as you know how to prove that you have necessary skills for the position, and that why you are interested in the job.

    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.
