    Met PwC first through on campus recruiting then had an on-campus interview. Was offered my in office interview during the initial interview. Went to the office for a dinner the night before interviews and then had interviews all day the next day. Easy, relaxed process.

    Met PwC at a career fair and was invited to interview a few days later. Process was very straightforward. Interviewer was very knowledgeable and did not ask any hard or challenging questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I started out by talking with the campus recruiter and attending a career fair. They called me the following day and said they were impressed with me. A few days later I got invited to a mixer on campus and an interview the following day. I talked with several people in the risk assurance department and both a manager and a partner. The following day the partner interviewed me however it was mostly just conversational, not traditional questioning. Later that day I got called to set up a second round interview/office visit at their office in Detroit. A week later I went there, had a great experience while they wined and dined us with a great tour of the city, its restaurants and an amazing hotel. The following day I interview with two partners, a manger and a panel of associates. The office visit ended with a lunch and guided tour of Ford Field. This process ended on a Friday and on the following Monday they called me and extended me an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    After completing the intitial phone interview they brought me in for the office visit. The office visit was a great experience. There were three interviews that I went through. The first one was with a partner, the second was a manager, and the thrid was with a newer associate. All of the interviews consisted of 2 or 3 behavioral questions and the rest of it was just general conversation about my resume and what i would be doing if I was hired. Overall it was one of the better interview experiences iv ever had.
