I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – I found out of this position through a professor who was contacted by a recruiter for possible students that would be interested. I did not go through a phone screening or first-round campus interviews. I was invited to the Chicago office for a two day event which consisted of a dinner with the recruiter and some partners and associates on Day 1 and on Day 2, which started at 8:30am, we had a welcome introduction, 2 back-to-back behavioral interviews lasting about 45 mins each, a panel discussion time for Q&A, and then a lunch which concluded the event at 1pm.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.
Interview Details – For as big as PwC is, I felt that they spent a very minimal amount of time with candidates. I think that is a mix of their ability to quickly judge fit and skills and because of how large the organization is. It was informative but was hard to get an idea of what I would be doing specifically.

Interview Details – It was very unfriendly. They did not try to make me feel comfortable and just asked questions off a sheet. They were writing my answers down which made it very awkward and the interview did not flow.

Reason for Declining – I wanted a summer internship, but they offered me a winter internship. I did not want to push my graduation date back so I declined.

Interview Details – The interview process was very casual. I am part of an Integrated Masters of Accountancy Program where an internship is built into the program. For over a year all members of the program had the opportunity to meet various public accounting firms and at the end of our junior year we interviewed for internship positions for the spring of our senior year. My interview was with a senior manager at PwC. She did not ask many technical questions, but rather it was more about getting to know me as a person and how I would fit into their company culture.

Interview Details –
I submitted my resume on the university career website and got an on campus interview. My interviewer was a HR person and the interview was pretty relaxing, with questions like, tell me a little bit about yourself, where do you see yourself in 10 years, why do you think you are the right fit for our firm, how do you divide your time between study and campus activities, etc...no surprises.
After about 2 weeks they contacted me through email for an office visit. The office visit consisted of a lunch with the current employees and other candidates, a manager interview, a HR interview, and a partner interview. It was kind of intense cause it was one right after another with no break. No technical questions...the most technical one I got was, tell me about the financial news you are following lately. Other than that, mostly personality and experience based questions.

Interview Details – The PWC interview process consisted of 2 phone screens (about an hour each) to understand and validate technology and work experience. I have a full-day interview that consisted of 1:1 interviews with 2 advisory managers and 2 partners. The interviewers asked detailed questions about work experience, and put me in situations and asked me to respond what I would do in those situations. Each session was very interactive where I was able to repond and ask questions as well. I also met with HR who gave me a great overview of the company, and details on the review process at PWC. Overall a pretty smooth interview process.

Interview Details –
The interview process was pretty much what other folks on glassdoor have described.
I was referred by a current employee and HR contact me right away (within 2 days) for a short telephonic interview (half hour). It took about 2-3 weeks to get a date fixed for a final round interview at the Chicago Office.
The final round at the Chicago office consisted of 4 iviews (1 partner + 1 director + 2 managers). No case interview. It was all behavioral rather conversational. They really want to get to know you as a person.
I really enjoyed my discussion with everyone.
I was told that I was not made an offer but after that I spoke with a partner who told me that they went with someone with more work experience. However, the partner took the time to provide feedback and it was positive.
Overall, a positive interview experience.
Interview Question – Typical questions like - Why consulting, why now etc Answer Question
