    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round is phone interview, asking about technical questions based on your internship or whatever professional experience. For me, all the questions is in data management area.
    After 3 days, I got the second round on-site interview, it was a whole day office visit. Three one-on-one interviews, all about conversations, just random chat your educational background, your professional experience, your strength, your interests, why you pick PWC, what do you expect PWC provide you... and they gave you opportunities to ask a lot of questions. All the people there are very nice and professional!

    Risk Assurance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First started out with getting through the screening and getting a first round interview on campus. The day before the interview they have a pre-night session which in my opinion is better than the pre-night of other Big 4's. The first round interview was very basic and conversational (go through resume, basic behavioral questions). Heard back 4 business days later to invite me to office visit. Took 3 business days after office visit to get offer.
