Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC in October 2009.

Interview

The interview process was simple. I applied through my college website, and was contacted the following week. I went on a 1:1 interview on my campus, and was called back for a second round. It was very low-key and not intimidating. The second round was held in the NYC HQ office, which consisted of a panel discussion and 3 1:1 interviews. Initially 2 weeks later I was told I hadn't received the position. However, 2 months later they contacted me with the possibility of taking on the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Negotiation

    Not much to speak of in the negotiation phase.
