IT Consultant Interview

IT Consultant
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – First round was pretty straight forward - all behavioral questions about working in groups and how you handle situations and how you triumphed over them. Just bring everything back to you and how you went through something difficult but ended up working through it and improving the situation.

Second Round/FInal Round was a series of interviews (3 in total) with the partners of the firm. 2 of them were very relaxed and took the interview lightly and the last one was more of a strict/firm interview. They mostly stuck with their suggested interview question sheet and so there was a lot of repetition.

Interview Question – What was your least favorite course?   Answer Question
