    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Client Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for this position after an employee recommended me for the role. The process initially was fairly straightforward. I had a telephone interview with a HR rep, submitted further writing samples, then participated in a telephone interview with the supervisor. They brought me in for a face-to-face interview within two weeks of the initial resume submission.
    The actual live interview was quite intense. Over the period of an entire afternoon, I individually met with seven people from all levels of the team from the VP to managing partners to managers to senior associates. Time was limited to only 30 minutes with each person, scheduled back-to-back with no break. With each interviewer, they spent more than half the time talking about themselves, their role and their experience with PwC. They explained more about the Client Driver position and its significance within the team. I asked varying questions of each of them related to the position itself: What are the day-to-day responsibilities in the role? What is the ramp-up period for new employees? Why did the previous staff member leave the role? What is the greatest challenge? Why do you like working here? How have you advanced in PwC?, etc....
    The final person I met with was the supervisor who conducted the previous phone interview. We chatted casually about the role, my experience and the expectations of the position.
    All in all, I felt it went very well, and looking back, there is nothing I would've changed about my answers, behaviors or impression. They promised to get back to me within the week, but of course, I did not hear from anyone during that time. I reached out to the HR person, who called a week later and told me that "they decided to go in a different direction". I asked for feedback, and they said that I did not ask enough questions. Frankly, in the interview format and the time allowed, I asked as many questions as I could!
