    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I had two rounds of interviews with PwC. The first-round was conducted on campus and was strictly conversational and going over my resume. My second-round was the office visit. We had a presentation about the firm then had three 30 minute interviews. The interviews were pretty much strictly behavioral - each of my interviewers read "tell me about a time when..." questions off of a piece of paper based on the PwC professional framework. Make sure you have lots (I'd say at least 8) of examples and experiences that you can use to fit the behavioral questions, as some of the questions got repetitive. The questions themselves were not difficult - it's just a matter of having experiences that you can relate back to them.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my University and was asked back for an on-campus interview. There was a Happy Hour social the night before, where the recruiters made it seem like we were all already "in" since they do the majority of their cuts based on the resume. Interview was simple behavioral questions and friendly conversation, but the recruiter and I did not click so I did not get asked back.

    Networking is EVERYTHING for PwC - network with them as soon as possible, even freshmen year. Even just emailing a recruiter back and forth a few times is valuable. They also take your attendance at events, so show up to the Career Fair, socials, etc.

    It was a relatively easy process. I was accepted for an on-campus interview that consisted of mainly questions regarding past experiences. The interviewer was easy to talk to and answered all my questions thoughtfully.

    Behavioral for first round - 3 questions on teamwork etc. This was also a way for them to bring you on board and introduce the firm values etc. You also get a chance to ask them questions and they're all pretty friendly in that regard

    Interview Details

    Started with an on campus interview and then was invited back to the second round for an office interview. The first interview I thought the first on campus interview was a lot harder than the office interview because the office interviews were more conversational.

    Interview Details

    This interview at PWC was a very simple interview process, The first interview was basically a conversation. Not many "Interview" questions, rather just trying to get to know me and what I do with my time. Asked me specifics about the company, and how I can see my self doing the job. Next step is an on site super day.
