    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Behavioral Interview with extremely nice group of people. Be personable and make sure PwC is a good fit for you before accepting. There is not a whole lot you can do to prepare other than being confident in your abilities and confident that PwC is a good place with you for a good reason. Beyond that, be comfortable with travellng and open to learning.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Superday, with three-30 minute interviews with a Manager, Director and a Partner. All interviews were behavioral. Off the bat I made a strong connection with one of the interviewees, so that interview turned into a fluid, normal conversation rather than a formal meet and greet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was really helpful, straighforward and too the point. They ask you questions that they would like to see in individuals they would have to work with. A good thing to think about is the airport test, which is commonly used in these kinds of interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a senior associate role on the advisory team, which consisted for 3 rounds. Round 1: Phone screen with HR. They asked 3 basic questions: why do you want to leave, why do you want to work here and walk me through your resume. Round 2: This consisted of a technical phone screen with a manager and was presented hypothetical problems and how I would go about solving them. Round 3: Took place in the NYC office and met with a manager, director and partner. During this 3 hour interview session, I was asked the same questions that I received during rounds 1 and 2. The proceeding business day I got a phone call from my recruiter informing me that an offer was on the way, but it ended up taking two weeks to receive the official offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PwC (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    Phone screening interview, then in person super day with 3 people in that line of service ranging from senior associate to senior manager. I kept in constant contact with the recruiter which made the transition more more smooth. All questions were behavioral. The only thing technical is what I brought up to make myself stand out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    On campus interview was pretty standard, basic resume questions and why this job? why this city? type stuff. Got a call back to do an office visit 10 days later. Had honestly given up on the job by then. They flew me out to NYC, and put me up in a very nice hotel. The office visit began with an hour long presentation with light breakfast where they basically just tried to sell us on PWC. Interviewed with a few other students from my same school, so we were all together pretty much the whole day outside of the actual interviews. After the presentation there were 4 back to back 30 minute interviews with Directors. Mostly behavioral questions, nothing too tricky though. Then the interviewees had lunch with associates before we were on our way. Got an offer the next day.

    Phone interview followed by invitation to Superday. There were three interviews (one with a partner and two with senior associates). You need to know the PwC framework and they ask questions based on that. I heard back later that night that I had received an offer.
