Advisory Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

Interview

Heavily recruits from my school so there were already many opportunities to network with the representatives. Everyone was incredibly nice and easy going. The first-round interview was just a conversation, with the occasional question about activities at school. Final round included the case presentation, however the questions asked were very predictable. The final interview was also incredibly focused on the conversations.

    Case 48 hours in advance. Take significant time to prep, you can generally guess what the case question will be. I would recommend prepping the agenda and slides for the presentation in advance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Selected for an on-campus interview and was invited to a meet and greet event the night before. There were a bunch of PwC employees there and we all mingled and ate, it was very laid back. The next day was my 1 on 1 interview with a manager, which was very relaxed. We basically had a conversation for an our, and I didn't feel like I was being grilled at all. I heard back a few days later with an invite to the on-site visit that Friday in McLean. Myself and about 15 other candidates were there. We met in the lobby, got a presentation with lunch, and then the interviews began. My first interview was with a manager and that consisted of a few behavioral questions. My second interview was with a partner and it was again behavioral. My last interview was with another manager, and this was the case interview. They gave us the case in advance but gave us the questions that day. The case was pretty complicated and the questions were specific to each candidate's line of service. This is the first time PwC is doing case studies for undergrad interns. Prepare well in advance and you will wow them.
