    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial interview with Recruiter - she sent email about the position - then I sent her my most recent resume. She asked why I was looking for new employment - informed her that my contract had just ended.
    Next - she passed my resume on to the senior recruiter and that recruiter went through my resume and asked about my experience, what can I contribute to the position.
    Next - the Senior Recruiter passed my resume and information on to the Project Manager and that interview was great, she asked about my IT background, how the team would be structured and also what I could contribute as the Team lead.
    Finally was the face to face at the local office with a PWC Director and the PM. It went well and I had an offer within 4 days.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. I really connected with all of my interviewers. PwC is really a people oriented work place. If they like you, you will get the job. The interview process took about 4 weeks. First was the an on campus interview with a director. The interview was mainly focused on leadership. I ended up talking about sports with my interview. I received an email the next week after to confirm an office interview. The office interview lasted from 8am -2pm. It had 2 behavioral interviews and one case interviews. My advice is to just really be yourself. You have plenty of time to prep for your case interview. Don't stress to much on the case interview but make sure you ask questions and have an idea of the questions you will be asked. The behavioral interviews were more conversations than interviews. PwC wants to see if they will enjoy working with you. I received an offer exactly a week after my office interviews.

    No negotiations - I accepted terms as is which were within personal expectations. PwC's health plan is terrible - had I known I would have factored those extra expenses into salary consideration

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter for a prescreening interview. During the prescreening interview, I was asked general background questions about my experience in the field. The recruiting also asked questions regarding my current salary and whether I was interviewing with other companies and whether I was further along in their interviewing process. She laughed when I told her my current salary and told me that I wouldn't get that at PwC. Found the laughter a bit odd, but I digress. At the end of the interview, she told me that they were going to decline moving forward.
