    Difficult Interview

    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.

    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.
