I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in November 2009.
Interview Details – Interview was great...more of a conversation than Q&A. No case study. The office building was very nice-- nice facilities and close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. Only problem came when it got to the negotiation phase. The recruiter was pushy and I did not like her approach.
Negotiation Details – Appartently this firm does not pay as well as the others (e.g., Deloitte). The recruiter not willing to negotiate is a big red flag for me...but I'm willing to see how things go in the first 6 months. My circumstances may not be the same as yours, so it never hurts to try.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in January 2012.
Interview Details – I had two 1:1 interviews, each lasting about a half an hour. The first guy seemed pretty uninterested in what I had to say. I was basically just answering his questions, and then he would write something down and ask me a different question. There wasn't much reciprocation. The second guy was much more interesting. He would ask me follow-up questions to my responses, and he genuinely seemed interested in our interview (which was actually more like a conversation).

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in April 2010.
Interview Details – The initial communication started at a Big Four career fair where I got to meet with some of the recruiters. I got to talk with PWC the most in-depth and liked the people I spoke with so applied. For the first round interview, it was through on-campus recruiting and was a good experience. For PWC, it was behavioral for both the first and second round interviews. They hold a pre-interview outing/dinner for each round and in terms of professionalism and opportunity to get to know the firm and its culture, I would say PWC did a great job. They have a great structure for their second round interviews and was able to get to meet with a lot of people from the firm. Everyone was very willing to speak with the potential candidates and was quite a good experience.

Interview Details –
The first round consisted of 2 sessions (30 min). I did not get through to the second round, but it is case interview.
PwC asked questions like: Where do you see PwC in five years? How do you deal with "free riders" in a group? I also got questions about the company`s values. I would recommend other candidates to study the web page so you have knowledge about Pwc and the core values. The values are important to PwC, so you might get questions about them.
