I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2013.

Interview Details – 1st Stage - Campus interview (One 45 mins interview)
The first stage was a campus interview and a pre-night dinner.
2nd Stage - Office interview (Three 45mins 1:1 interviews)
The office visit starts with a pre night dinner. Next morning candidates have breakfast with the greeters and do the interview straight after breakfast.

Interview Question – The questions were mostly conversation based rather than behavioural questions. The interviewers were really nice and gave a lot of chances for interviewees to learn more about the company and position. I also had enough time to talk about my experience.   Answer Question

Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in September 2012.

Interview Details – I received the interview through campus recruiting, I submitted a resume and was preselected for an interview. During the pre-night, I spoke with multiple associates, including my interviewer (I didn't know it at the time). The interview wasn't too difficult. The first half consisted of standard behavioral questions and a few situational questions. Then about twenty minutes, the interviewer opened up a case discussion. He described a situation on the white board where a company with a standard heirarchy that was struggling with their sales positions at the bottom. He explained the entire chain of command and you had to talk out a solution.

Interview Details – Applied via the Career Center and talk to them at the Career Fair, got an interview somehow.

Interview was pretty informal, he rarely asked me any questions, he had me ask him questions the entire time. The only question he asked me was which sector of PwC's IT division could I see myself in?

Interview Question – "Where do you see yourself within the IT department?"   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – The process as a whole was relatively laid back and casual, although I was a campus recruit, which could be different than someone applying from the outside. The best advice I can pass along is to be as personable as possible. The HR department sees all kinds of qualified candidates, but the distinguishing factor can often be having an agreeable personality and positive attitude.

Interview Question – N/A - Overall the questions really were quite straightforward and conversational.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. The intern hourly rate was preset.

Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.

Interview Details – Got the interview through an on campus posting. Also I networked with various PwC associates during their networking event, so that definitely helped. It was a fairly simple interview. My interviewer just asked about resume and experience. There were no technical questions. However competition is tough since they recruit form multiple universities in the area.

Interview Question – Why do you want to go into this service line?   Answer Question
