    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC (Tysons Corner, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I went through two interview processes. One was a phone interview and then I was brought in for a face-to-face interview. The face-to-face interview included 3 behavioral interviews and a case interview. I thought that I nailed the entire thing, but I was not offered the position because they did not have a client for me to work on. I was sent an impersonal email from a "do not reply" email account rather than an email from the recruiter who I was corresponding with through the entire process.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all behavioral, and annoyingly repetitive.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Campus Interview, nothing special. Just bahavior based interview overall. The interviewer was very nice ask a lots of inrelevent questions such as where you came from, how do you like your school etc. Then I heard back from them after two weeks. Then invited to the office. Their office looks really nice, I meet with two partners and a manager. The second round interview questions is similar to first round, except more questions on how you will fit into the company's culature.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    The night before the first interview there was a dinner to get to know other interviewees and all interviewers. It wasnt mandatory but its definitely a good opportunity to get familiar with the person who will be interviewing you. First interview was on campus by a partner. Fairly easy interview, spoke about why you would be a good fit and past experiences. The second interview was at the desired office. I was interviewed by 3 different people, the first was similar to the interview with the partner, we spoke about past experience, why that office etc. The second interview was more of a informatory session, where the individual spoke of the department, responsibilities etc. The third was a technical interview since I applied for an ITPA position.
