    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied through college's career website. First round was behavioral on campus, and the final round was at their office and included 1 interview with partner, 1 interview with director and 1 interview with manager. They assigned a buddy to help you go through the process. The final rounds were on a Friday and I received the offer via phone on Monday. Overall process went really well. Everybody at PwC is genuinely nice, and they are more than willing to help. Know your resume very well.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Two behavior internviews with campus recruiters, one manager, and a partner. The individuals who interviewed me were very easy to get along with and I actually ended up talking about our common interests. This made it seem like i was actually not being interviewed, making time go by fast.

    Was first contacted to have a dinner meet and greet with the people that would interview me and other candidates. The dinner was very relaxed and helped me feel at ease for the interview.

    Interview

    Had a very unprofessional exchange with the recruiter who contacted me out of the blue, set up and blew off TWO phone screenings with me in a row coming up with a last minute weird excuse at the last moment, and then ultimately, after I reached out to him to follow up, he told me that I was not qualified for the job. It's like OK... Well then why did you reach out to me in the first place??? They seem pretty disorganized and also rude.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of a phone screening then invitation to an on site "super day". This day had 3 different interviews as well as a corporate presentation. Overall, you will interview with typically a manager, managing director, and partner, but it could differ depending on staffing. Really pleasant people-- both the interviewers and your fellow interviewees. Had a great experience.
