Application Details

The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC in November 2009.

Interview Details

It was very unfriendly. They did not try to make me feel comfortable and just asked questions off a sheet. They were writing my answers down which made it very awkward and the interview did not flow.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for a group interview. At this stage we had some team excerises and some debate. After this stage we were tested on different skills, such as English, economics and thinking outside the box. There were a lot of situations given and each one had a set of questions, usually with double or triple negations, aimed to see how well you understood the issues. After this, was called in again for an interview face to face with a hiring manager.

    Interview Details

    I got in contact with a recruiter. We did a preliminary interview before I interviewed with a partner. Then on the Super Day I interviewed with several partners. The whole interview process was long but very easy going in the beginning. Towards the end the interviews got to be a little more nerve racking.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by PwC after I submitted my resume to them at a career fair. At the career fair, I was asked simple questions like "What office will you like to intern in? Will you be able to travel? What are some of your plans after you graduate?" They wrote my answers on the back of my resume, and seemed pleased with the answers as well. Two weeks passed and I was contacted via email for a pre night social dinner and a interview. I attended the social and conversed with interns who are from my school. I also got to see my interviewer. I would suggest connecting with the people at the social. No matter if they are fellow interviewees, past interns, associates, or interviewers. Even making eye contact and passing a smile can go a long way. Just be polite and aware of your manners. Also try to be enjoyable and relatable. No one wants to work with a crab. :) The interview was strictly behavioral and was 40-45 mins. The interviewer really worked with me, and was patient and kind. I asked a lot of questions and was intrigued by his answers and advice. I did not perform perfectly in the interview, but I think he sensed my genuine interest to learn and excel. I was honestly surprised to learn that he passed me on to the my office, which is the NY office! The initial contact after this for the final interview was about 3-4 weeks. They paid for all of the expenses including a really nice hotel, taxi fare, food etc. At the time of my final interview I had finals and projects due for school, so instead of studying and practicing for the interview I studied my school work. Even though I did not practice the typical "when have you ever done this? or what are your future goals?" questions I found that I did not need to. When you go in for your final interview you already meet all of the needed critieria. Now all they want to see if if your personality fits the office and its members. So relax and be your genuine true self. Anyone, especially the interviewers, will be able to see through a fake person. The final interview consisted of three interviews with a manager, director, and partner. All of the interviews was basically conversational and relaxed. No really hard questions. They just asked me about my experience and what was on my resume. So my advice is to know your resume and have stories and examples of the experience you have listed on your resume. Also if you have any other offers or interviews with other companies you can throw that in the interview too ;) this kind of makes you a hot commodity because PwC wants to out compete all other firms with the best of the best people working for them. I would also suggest practicing the basic interview questions and knowing what your future goals are and where you see yourself in the company in the future. But the most important thing is to be yourself and know yourself. If you do this you will ace the interview, and land the job or internship! Good Luck.
