Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at PwC (Evanston, IL) in October 2014.

Interview

I applied online through my school's career website and I was invited to an on-campus interview. The interviewer was very nice and willing to answer any questions. The interview was a behavioral interview and it lasted about half an hour. The interviewer first explained to me the job I had applied for and what it entailed before he began the interview.

    Interview

    It was really helpful, straighforward and too the point. They ask you questions that they would like to see in individuals they would have to work with. A good thing to think about is the airport test, which is commonly used in these kinds of interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I participated in campus recruiting. Very friendly and approachable consultants came for an initial introduction of the company and role. Be sure to follow up with these people as they have a role in grading the candidates (or at least ensuring their resumes are screened more thoroughly). I had 1 in-person on campus interview and 3 final round interviews in their Chicago office (usually the nearest bug office near your campus)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Was called for an on campus interview. I was selected on the on campus interview. Then given a choice to fly to my choice office. Went to New York and had 3 back to back interviews. One with manager and 2 with senior partners. Got the offer but declined because I thought it paid low. However I feel its a great company to work for if you are patient and want to excel in the field of consulting.

    Interview Questions

    • All were behavioral questions and was not tough as I was from engineering background. They looked for positive attitude and wanted people who had technical skills with modesty.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PwC (Luxembourg (Luxembourg)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The Interview Process consisted of a telephone interview with personal (fit) questions and 2 rounds of interviews. The first round of interviews was 1 interview with a director, the next one with HR and the last one with a partner. Each interview during about an hour. The second round of interviews was a 1-hour-interview with 2 directors of the "target" department.

    Most of the questions were general questions about my background and why I chose this path or made this decision. There were nearly no technical questions except looking over a PP-presentation and giving some advice on how to do it better and a very small "brainteaser". The HR asked typical questions (What are your weaknesses, Why PwC, were do you see yourself in 5 years...) and was quite unfriendly.
