    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was relatively friendly, and relaxed. The interviewers seemed to want to see if you were someone they would want to work with. This is probably due to the fact that someone was going to have to spend their 24/7 next to you for limited pay.

    Applied via a university recruiter, interned (great) and accepted full time offer (all associates I've met were/are eager to leave). The interview process is standard. Interview with HR, then a second round, then super day (have a round table then 3 back-to-back interviews). Everyone was nice and helpful!

      Name a time you worked in a time
      What is a difficulty you overcame
      Name an accomplishment you are proud of

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The interview lasted for about half an hour and was followed by a 45-minutes long English test. It was an overall pleasant experience. I thought I was prepared for the difficult questions, but my nerves got the best of me, so the most helpful advice I can give anyone is to be calm. Don't hesitated to admit you don't know something you're asked.
