    Hiring was ok, no face to face interview but over the phone, the hiring manager doesn't demand much but all questions that he needs to hear. Then you wait for their call and they'll decide to take you or not

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got a initial call from the HR regarding the technical telephonic interview with the Project manager. The project manager asked some basic IT technical questions ( SDLC, SQL , Dodd Frank).The next day i got a call from the HR saying that i am moving on to the 2nd round where i will be meeting 2 project managers in person.I had a similar technical interview with the project managers . Asked me technical + behvioural questions e.g. why should we hire you , why pwc etc..

    Moved to the 3rd and the final interview round with the Partner. Partner kept me waiting for 1.5 hr before the interview ( not professional) . Pretty short introductuctory interview which lasted about 10 min.2 days after the partner interview , i recieved a call from the HR and she offered a position verbally. Did not get a written offer letter for a long time. HR wouldn't let me know the status.. Kept following up and i let it go !!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was an experienced hire from an employee referral. I had original phone interview with HR. They are basically the gatekeeper. They don't like you, you don't get in. Later had phone interviews with Manager, and two Directors. Lastly, had Interview Day at the office with two Managers, Director, and Partner. No case, all behavioral/technical stuff. Want to see if you're a good fit.

    IT Strategy Experienced Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    A. Contacted by Recruiter on Linked In B. Submitted an application online C. Interviewed by phone with HR D. Interviewed by phone with Director. The recruiters and HR were very on top of things and were very friendly. The directors I interviewed were much less so. They always called late which cut our interview short, and spent a lot more time talking about themselves and their practice than asking me questions and allowing me to showcase my accomplisments. I was appying from a competitor BIg 4 consulting commpany- and the directors were much more interested in asking me about the competitor IT Strategy shop I worked at. They wanted to know in painstaking detail the business goals and strategies, and customers. To which I basically explained them the generalities but told that if they wanted to know specifics, they'd have to bring me into the company and hire me. I was annoyed that they didnt let me talk about my accomplihments and skills and only wanted to know about the business intel, which i wasnt about to give them for free. It looked to me that they were not really interested in hiring anyone but were much more intent on fishshing for free competitor business intelligence. The position I interviewed for has been open for more than 6 months in my city,- so I think they are trying to get as many people to apply as they can to milk for intelligence. If they were really interested to fill the position, someone would have been hired by now.

    Interview Questions
