    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Two behavior internviews with campus recruiters, one manager, and a partner. The individuals who interviewed me were very easy to get along with and I actually ended up talking about our common interests. This made it seem like i was actually not being interviewed, making time go by fast.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I applied online and then was contacted by a recruiter (in a different location, my school did not have a recruiting program). For some reasons, I could not contact the recruiter after the process (invalid email address and non-working phone number) and I just never heard back from her/the company.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    First they asked you to walk through your resume. Just the basic stuffs, things that you have done, your achievements, etc. Next, they asked you specific questions relating to the PWC assessment framework. It is more of a situational-based type of question. Lastly, they will set aside some time for you to ask questions about the company or your interviewer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Phone interview--> on-site interview. It's a very comfortable interview and people are very nice. They want to learn more about you by asking the questions. Also, they have the list of questions and pick 4-5 questions per interview.It takes 30 min/interview and you will feel time flies, especially after 4-5 questions and only 5 mins left for asking my questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you manage your time if the deadline earlier than your expected?
      What's your favorite subject?
      How do you do a research?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter for a phone interview. Then invited for the office visit. Interviews are consist 80% behavior question 10% resume and 10% chit chat. They really want to know how you react by answering behavior question that put you in different situation. No difficult questions if you have prepare your story. In my opinions the communication in the process is lacking, their staff also skipped the office tour in the interview day (which is pretty lame since they are suppose to be responsible for that). Response was quick as receive a very general rejection letter few days after my interview, tried to follow up with my recruiter for the feedback, but like I said, communication is lacking in my opinion.

    Interview Questions

    • Before we start, tell me something you want me to know that is not on your resume.
      Tell me a time where you have to change your ways to communicate with the others.
      Tell me a time u receive developmental feedback.
      Tell me a time where your team had conflict due to different cultures and and background.
      Tell me a time where you're working under pressure but still ensure to deliver quality work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Everything about the process was very laid back and inviting. The recruiter (who was extremely friendly and kind) email me and texted me a few times and arranged everything. Then, on the actual interview date I was greeted by an associate, taken around to three different people to be interviewed (a senior associate, manager and partner) and then they took me to lunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was difficult or unexpected. They didn't ask me any technical questions, only questions about my involvement at university and questions about myself. There were a few behavioral based questions, but if you practice for your interview. it shouldn't be too difficult.   Answer Question

    Interview

    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

    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.
