    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Got an interview on campus. Dinner and an interview the next day. Interview was mostly informal. There was one or two behavioral questions but mostly just going over the resume and expanding on experience. Then had an in-house interview. There was a presentation about pwc and two interviews. Similar to the on campus interview but more behavioral questions. Pretty fun experience overall.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when someone was doing something unethical and you did something about it.   Answer Question

    Campus standard interview either by a partner or HR recruiter; second round is on site interview, consisting of three rounds, half day. One manager, one partner and senior associate. Interview with partner is the key. Once nail that down, pretty much you're set.

    People are weird at this firm. They only care about themselves and that's sad. I will never advise someone to work for a Big 4 if they want to enjoy a positive worklife.

    The interview process was great. They have a new process where each of your interviews will test a certain part of the "PwC professional". They put on a fantastic reception after the Superday.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the school's career service and got an on-campus first-round interview. Purely behavioral, pretty standard interview. Interview questions are like why consulting, why PwC, where do you see yourself in 5 years, and what specific consulting division you want to work in. So make sure that you research the company well and have a concrete career plan with the company.
