    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.

    Nothing special or tricky. Actually, it was pretty relaxed if not boring. Talked with 3 Partners. But then I was an experienced hire. They recruited me. So that sets a different tone.

    The process was well organized. Not to difficult to get an offer coming from a good state university. GPA is key to getting interview. Behavioral questions are common during interview. Attended a 2 day leadership event which was helpful in getting an offer. Did not apply to any other accounting firms.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting: consisted of pre-interview dinner reception which is a good place to meet employees in the division you're applying to, then on-campus interview the next day. Online campus interview was about 30 minutes long, which consisted of basic introductions, tell me about yourself a little bit, basic questions like why accounting/why tax, and can you tell me about X experience on your resume. Make sure to have questions prepared or ask questions during the interview. Then office visit included 3 interviews, one with a partner.

    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.

    There was a pre interview dinner first. Then, there was the on-campus interview the next morning. All in all, the whole process was nothing too special. As for the interview itself, it was pretty conversational and relaxed. They didn't grill me with weird behavioral questions.
