    3 questions, pretty straight forward. Just practice the general job interview answers and you will be fine. No technical questions about the company or the job details. The interviewer was a senior partner, not a recruiter.

    Interview Details

    Have had just the first round. Secound round is on Friday. The Interview was pretty relaxed. Had a pre-interview reception the day before. Got to meet with the interviewers as well. So on the day of the interview I knew the interviewer, he knew me. He laid out the interview format which was to be of 30 minutes. Asked me two behavioral questions, career interests, of the resume questions. All in all a conversational interview.

    Interview Details

    Did it through on campus recruiting. One round on campus and second round they flew me onsite. Everyone I met was very nice and I can tell they care a lot about the candidates. Finally declined offer because I joined a different industry, but the overall impression throughout the process was extremely positive.

    Management Consultant/Risk Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I dropped my resume on my school website and applied on the PwC website in January. There was no cover letter required (although you were allowed to submit "additional documents"). I received a first-round interview, went to a pre-interview mixer to pick up some insider views on "why PwC" and stuff like that. Went through first rounds, sent a follow up RIGHT after (they deliberate on you the same day they choose you so make sure you send it RIGHT AWAY!), and didn't make round 2 for GPA reasons. :(

    Interview Questions
    • None; were quite typical, behavioral ones. Questions (not verbatim) below:

      - What is your favorite class and why?
      - Tell me about a time you to prioritize and how you handled the situation.
      - You think you overhear a colleague spill confidential information to an outside source. What do you do?
