    Interview Details

    Each of us got a list of interviewers during the Superday. I had four interviewers. Each interviewed for half an hour. No technical questions, but there are lots of behavioral questions, especially on teamwork. So be prepared and ask wise questions. Most of us get our results in two days. All the interviewers are very friendly so there's no need to be nervous.

    Interview Questions
    • If a team member does not cooperate, what would you do? The interviewer asked lots of follow-up questions after i answered her, which made me feel very unexpected.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Very low stress interview with one individual (manager, director, or partner) on campus, followed by interview in office with (1) senior associate/manager, then (2) partner. Interviewers are well-trained in recognizing high-functioning team members with required skills. Interview questions will be conversational to get a sense of how a person may or may not fit in with PwC culture and the demands of working in a team environment most of the time.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiation on pay as PwC is able to hire the next person in line, but was able to state preference on office location and travel.
