    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Overall, the experience you get with PwC is going to be very professional, which reflects upon their culture. Nice people, but not particularly warm. I interned there over the summer, and did not enjoy my engagement team. I am actually very torn between Deloitte and PwC as one has better culture and the later has a larger client base in New York (and the Mid town location is not bad either) They definitely ask you a lot of questions that are related to the current economic trends just to see if you have been keeping up. Comparing to other firms, their interview questions focused less on the behavioral questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC in July 2009.

    Interview

    I felt the interview process was very unfair. I wasn't given the opportunity to discuss my experience and suitability for the role in any great detail. The interviewer had made up his mind early in the interview that I wasn't going to be hired and I don't think I could have done anything to change his mind.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2008.

    Interview

    Quick process in my experience. People were likeable and generally an accurate reflection of the actual culture of the firm. Had two rounds. First was an ice-breaker cultural fit interview with a manager. Second was an assessment centre comprising numerical, logic and verbal tests, group exercise and partner interview. Partner interview involved going through a case study and was quite tough.

The seconfd part consisted of situation related questions were I was asked wheather I had dealt with certain situations and how i dealt with them using for example leadership skills.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC in June 2010.

    Interview

    Firstly a phone interview which was easily passed. Secondly group interviews to test your people skills, also easily passed thridly numerical/verbal reasoning tests online which were relativly strait forward maths and reading comprihension. Lastly was a one to tone interview with a manager which was somewhat less organised and structed than other areas of employment allowing candidates to speak freely about a range of issues.
