I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – Went through the On Campus Recruiting process and was selected for the 1st round. This round consists of two one on one fit interviews on campus. The interviews were very straight forward. Be prepared to talk about your experiences in detail. One of the interviewers was part of a recent acquisition. He did not seem to be happy about the new culture. So he had a couple of questions on dealing with new culture, acquisitions etc. Mostly usual questions - Why consulting, Why PwC etc.
Interview Question – One question that I struggled with was - "Tell me three good reasons why I should not hire you. And don't try to give me weaknesses that can be turned into strengths". Answer Question

What are your favorite courses? why?
What kind of projects have you worked on? What products/programming languages did you use?
They don't go deep into the technical details, just want to gauge your confidence and skills.

Tax Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – There were three interviews scheduled. The environment was very relaxed. Everyone was very friendly. It was slightly busy because they were preparing for tax season. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes. The interviewers mostly discussed different projects that were planned and the roles that I would play. I was taken out to lunch with some of the interviewers, which was the most difficult for me. It was difficult because the restaurant was loud and most of the topics discussed at the table were centered around how many houses everyone had, the amount of travel points everyone had, and issues that they had at work. It was difficult to relate to them.
Interview Question – Questions were easy, but I did not expect to interview with someone extremely technical especially since I am a recent college graduate. Answer Question

Senior Associate - Advisory Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in July 2012.
Interview Details – I networked a lot with my college alumni who are working in PwC. One of my college alumni referred me in their internal referral system. A recruiter contacted me after more than a month asking me to apply for an open position. I had a phone interview with the recruiter. The interview was to know about my work experience and interests. After the interview i did not hear anything from them until 3 more weeks. After 3 weeks i got contacted by a recruiter on a Friday telling me that i'll have a phone interview with a Partner on Monday morning. The phone interview was again based on my work experience. Nothing difficult. One hour after the phone interview, the recruiter called me and invited me to onsite interviews for the following Friday. I had 3 interviews. First 2 are with managers and the third one is with a partner. The interviews are all behavioral and revolved around my work experience. They basically liked my work profile and wanted to see if i could fit into the PwC culture. They encouraged me to ask more questions. My advice is to be yourself and show a lot of interest in knowing about the company culture and the kind of work they do. Be confident and presentable. You are invited for the final rounds because they like your work experience. The final hurdle is to show them that you fit into the culture very well. Overall the interview process has been really smooth. The recruiters and the interviewers were very nice and approachable. I got the offer next monday but it took one more week to get the final approvals. PwC is undoubtedly one of the best companies i've interviewed with and i am looking forward to having a long career with them.
Interview Question – No difficult questions Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did not try to negotiate. This was my first offer after graduation and the offer was very good.
