Interview Question – Pretty standard Consulting fit and case. Answer Question
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.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume through a current employee and heard back fairly quickly that they wanted to conduct a phone interview. All the questions were behavioral in nature (Name a time when...) and fairly easy. About a week later I received an invitation to fly up to Boston for an in-office interview. I was one of about 50 people there to interview that day, although I'm not sure how many of those candidates I was actually competing against. Some people were there for assurance positions, or internship positions. Everyone was really nice and welcoming that I met. My morning consisted of a tour of the office and three individual interviews with various managers. Within a week of this visit I received an email saying that they would not be extending me a job offer. I was a bit perplexed by this since they had taken the time to fly me up and pay for my hotel room. Upon some prodding, the only feedback I could get from an HR rep was that I didn't have the experience they were looking for.
