Interview Details

It was an on campus interview. I applied online through my campus website. The interview llasted 30 mins and it was more of a conversation than a formal interview. It seemed they were just trying to get to know you more than anything else. Just be yourself and make sure to ask questions at the end.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume to career center and applied online at the firm's website. Heard back within a day that i was selected for the on campus interview. The interview process was very straight forward- first half was situational questions and second half was asking questions/chatting with interviewer. The most important part is to ask questions and show that your interested about the firm. Seems like the interview process was similar to an internship interview. Most of my chat with the recruiter was questions related to working in the firm and career path type questions.
    Overall, be yourself and hold the conversation until the lat minute of the interview. Got an e mail a week later saying I'm invited to the program!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of a basic application and a behavioral interview. The interviewer was very friendly and enthusiastic about both PwC and the interview. A very relaxed and low stress interview atmosphere. The questions focused on different team experiences and leadership roles within those teams. I got an offer about two weeks after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    There were two rounds of interviews, first on campus and then at a PwC office. The on campus interviews consisted of two 30 minute interviews, both behavioral and extremely conversational. Make sure to bring your resume, but don't be too stressed about this one. The interview at the office consisted of two behavioral interviews and one case study. The case study was a little nerve wracking since it was my first time doing one but the interviewer is helpful and asks questions along the way. The behavioral interviews are also very laid back and conversational.

    Interview Questions
    • The business case was difficult in that I had no industry knowledge and was expected to make a presentation out of it. However they seem to be looking more for whether or not you can articulate your thoughts and give a well structured presentation rather than how good of a solution you can think of.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    80-90 students from my school applied, around 40 got the interview, and finally about 10 students got into the program. Half an hour, one-on-one interview with a partner from PwC. Make sure you know EVERYTHING on your resume; you never know which one your interviewer will be interested in. Did not really ask much behavior questions. Mostly it was like a "get-to-know-you" conversations.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds, one on-campus and a superday in NY. First round was very relaxed and purely behavioral; the partner I spoke to was easygoing. The second round consisted of a behavioral interview, a case interview, and another behavioral interview. The behavioral interviews were pretty standard and not difficult. I was taken aback by the fact that applicants were supposed to prepare for the case interview ahead of time, although we were given 45 minutes of in-office prep time.
