Advisory Technology Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2010.
Interview Details – The hiring process happened in 3 steps:
1) Campus interview - mostly to understand my resume and establish a good fit for the position
2) Phone interview with national recruiter - more technical questions, grilled about resume, behavioral based questions (e.g., "Tell me about a time when you failed" or "How did you resolve a conflict with a team member?")
3) On site interview (3 phases) - this was mainly to assess at a peer level, a management level, and a partner level if I'd be a good cultural fit for the specific team I'd be working for.
Interview Question – 1) Tell me about a time when you failed? How did you proceed after that? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Since I was a campus hire, I didn't have much leverage at all during the negotiation phase. I asked a few questions about bonus structure and market value, but it didn't really do much good.
Summer Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2014.
Interview Details – PwC was great about the interview process. I turned in my application through a campus recruiter, and heard back in around 3 weeks about a first round interview. A few days before the interview, we were given information about a reception that was optional- attend these! It's a great way to learn about the company and the culture and projects. Associates were incredibly welcoming and insightful. I appreciated their honest and enthusiasm.
First round was one behavioral interview- nothing crazy- mostly talking about my experiences, what i liked and disliked about consulting.
On Monday I was given offer for second interview that Friday. Was given a case for 48 hours and I would suggest reviewing that extensively. Have your notes and thoughts prepared for a presentation. Second round included 45 minutes to prepare for case interview, and then a combination of two behavioral and one case interview. Behavioral were situational based and asking how my experiences related to consulting. They were very conversational and interviewers were interested in your experience and friendly.
Heard back about a week later.
Interview Question – What was a time that you mentored someone and that someone mentored you. Answer Question

Risk Assurance Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through school and PwC for full time.
Pre-interview dinner with candidates and professionals from all practices.
First round interview was 45 minutes with a director-- behavioral and resume questions.
Got a call back three business days later for a second round invitation.
Thursday night dinner, each table consisted of three candidates and three professionals.
Three interviews on Friday morning consisted of a senior, a director, and a partner.
Breakfast, lunch, and office tour with a personal host.
Additional events in the afternoon to get to know PwC better.
Make sure to give the best impression to everyone you meet from the day you first express interest. Keep your campus recruiter updated with your continuing interest in PwC. Every person who says one good thing about you is another step closer. Try to connect with professionals in your field past just a 'thank you' email.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
Risk Assurance Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2011.
Interview Details – On campus, the review process begins at the career fair, so first impressions matter. GPA and relevant experience are very important factors. We are also looking at personality and whether or not you know what Risk Assurance actually does (we like people who know what they want to do in their life). After the career fair, there are on the on-campus behavioral interview, followed by offer to on-site interview. If you do the on-site interview, know that you will be judged during your pre-interview dinner and by your host when you arrive - so always remain focused. The on-site interview is behavioral with managers, directors and a partner. Know that if you make it that far, they know your smart - they want to test your character and behavior.
Interview Question – During these interviews, I never saw any questions about technical skills or knowledge. If you make it to the interview, they know you meet the technical qualification. What distinguishes one big four company to another is its people. So in addition to being smart, you need to be personable and able to communicate comfortably in stressful moments. Some of the partners like to ask random questions about failures or difficulties you encountered to gauge how you work under pressure. Aside from that, its fairly routine. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Risk Assurance is accept/reject. At the time there was no negotiation phase.
