    Interview Details

    The first round interview was very calm and relaxed, just turned out to be a conversation. The super day was an all day event that contained interviews with employees of varying importance from new associate to partner. I ended up being called just a few hours after the super day was over with an offer for the position.

    Interview Details

    First had a campus interview. That was pretty easy, asked a few behavioral questions but was mainly conversational. Was invited to an office interview. Had three interviews: one HR rep, one manager, and one partner. Honestly the interviews really depended on who you met with, all three of mine were completely different in terms of questions and formality, but nonetheless they were pretty easy. Just go in with interesting things to talk about and ask really good questions

    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.
