    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruitment process. Big 4 pre-interview socials the night before were standard. 1st on-campus interview with a partner who was very relaxed and friendly with a few behavioral questions. 2nd round office interviews similar but you are able to meet the lower level staff and are interviewed by managers as well as another partner.

    2nd round interview was an all morning ordeal and they will take you out to a very nice lunch and decide if you get the offer while you are gone with the lower lvl staff.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't think of a particular question that stands out as the most difficult because all of the big 4 are pretty laid back and seem like they simply want to get to know you.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, it seems like out of college all of the big four compete and settle around a set lvl for all of their new hires.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview was very calm and relaxed, just turned out to be a conversation. The super day was an all day event that contained interviews with employees of varying importance from new associate to partner. I ended up being called just a few hours after the super day was over with an offer for the position.

    Interview Details

    First had a campus interview. That was pretty easy, asked a few behavioral questions but was mainly conversational. Was invited to an office interview. Had three interviews: one HR rep, one manager, and one partner. Honestly the interviews really depended on who you met with, all three of mine were completely different in terms of questions and formality, but nonetheless they were pretty easy. Just go in with interesting things to talk about and ask really good questions

    The interview process was great. They have a new process where each of your interviews will test a certain part of the "PwC professional". They put on a fantastic reception after the Superday.

    The process was well organized. Not to difficult to get an offer coming from a good state university. GPA is key to getting interview. Behavioral questions are common during interview. Attended a 2 day leadership event which was helpful in getting an offer. Did not apply to any other accounting firms.

    Interview Details

    First interview was an on-campus interview. There was a pre-night event at Buffalo Wild Wings where all of the interview candidates were able to mingle with various PwC professionals. The campus interview was with an assurance manager and they called me the next day to tell me I made it to the office interviews. There was another pre-night event that included all the interview candidates from the local colleges and many more PwC professionals. This was great because I had an opportunity to get to know many of the professionals and determine if I was a fit within their firm culture. The office visit consisted of three 30 minute interviews with one partner and two managers. There was also a discussion panel with about four other candidates where you could ask recent interns and new associates any questions you would like. After that, we all went out to lunch to finish the visit.
