    Advisory Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    1st round: On-campus interview with manager. Be prepared to clearly articulate why PwC, why consulting, and behavioral experiences in school/in your internships. Be confident and don't over embellish or exaggerate your answers - they are looking for genuine people who fit in to their culture.

    2nd round: One case interview (case sent 48 hours before), one interview assessing your global acumen and one interview assessing your teamwork and communication competencies. If you make it this far, its yours to lose. Again, be open, kind, and confident in yourself. They are trying to see if they can put you in front of a client.

    Received verbal offer one business day later.

    The whole process was smooth, everyone was down to earth and friendly, and I was very impressed with the caliber of the interviewees at the final rounds. PwC is a rapidly growing its advisory practice and is truly investing into its new hires, which factored in to my decision to accept.

    Interview Details

    I made it to the second round after an on campus interview. For the second round, I was invited to do an office visit. I was extremely disappointed by the visit. I did not like the culture at all. My interviews were very strict interviews, no conversation at all.

    START Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly simple. I attended the career conference at my school and talked with an associate. He referred me to the hiring manager and told me to email her. After talking with the hiring manager via email she set up a phone call between us discussing the Start Internship.

    Once I was done speaking to the recruiter over the phone, I was notified that I would have an on campus interview. This interview ended up being a phone interview instead. After the phone interview, on the same day I was notified I was selected for a firm visit with 3 interviews. The firm visit was fairly laid back and easy going. We started with a brief introduction to who PwC is and a lot of statistics about PwC (remember these!! easy talking points during the interview). After the introduction we were brought into our 3 different 30 min interviews. Most of the interviews just seemed to look for your personality and your relationship building skills.

    Interview Questions
    • What are specific ways that you build and maintain relationships.
      What is an example of a time when you had to deal with "new" technology in a work environment and what did you do with it and how did you adapt to the change.
