    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    interviewed with 5 people, including 1 partner. Everyone was super nice and really helped me to calm down and feel comfortable. Even though I talked to 5 interviewers and it was pretty intense talking...it was a really casual setting and we had pleasant conversations. Overall a very positive experience.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

    Reasons for Declining

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I found all well and easy until the partner interview. All though the partner interview seemed very relaxed and I felt I nailed it they said I didn't really sell myself enough. I feel really stupid when I do it but I guess it needs to be done. Other than that everything was great and everybody is really friendly. The pool of candidates is always strong so I guess you need to be very upfront.

    Interview Questions
    • I got asked about my internship. To be honest I felt I oversold it but they thought I went way under. If you have any experience make it sound like you saved the company from bankruptcy and everything you learned will help you at PWC.   Answer Question
