    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    A campus contacts me for a phone interview after I applied online. We scheduled a 30 mins interview. It is all about behavioral based questions. For example, tell me a time when you have to deal with lots of staff and how you handle them. Tell me about your experience of working with difficult people and how did you persuade them.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college recruitment. GPA of 3.5+ was required in order to submit application. Was contacted by recruiter for interview at school. Somewhat informal interview probably due to the fact that it's only a student intern position. No news ever since the interview. Tried to follow up with recruiter but to no avil.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty standard interview. Recruiter was just doing a run though the resume.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview was fairly typical. They asked me about my background and internships and a couple behavioral questions ("Why consulting/PwC?", "Tell me about a time when...").

    They informed me a couple days later that I got a final round interview. 48 hours before it, they sent me a case study that I had to familiarize myself with. It was a few pages long, and decently complicated. When I arrived at the PwC office, they gave me and the other candidates an hour to create hard copy powerpoint slides based on questions they had on our cases. We then had three interviews in a row, each lasting half an hour. Two were behavioral interviews (they asked me about my traveling experiences, general resume questions, and again a lot of "tell me about a time when..." questions, but nothing too unexpected), and the third was the case. I had to present my presentation to the interviewer as if he was the client, which was the most nerve wracking of the three.

    They called me later that day with a verbal offer!

    Interview Questions
    • The case was the most difficult part. Make sure you have good presentation skills.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't able to negotiate. It's a national position, so negotiating would be a little more difficult.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed on campus but was not invited for the second round. I was interviewed by a tax partner. It was a comfortable atmosphere. No difficult questions but i fumbled a little. I was not as prepared as i thought i was (that is, i had no cover letter and no supporting documents e.g. previous projects). It was about 45 minutes but it went by so fast.
