    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and after two days I received an email and a phone call congratulating me on obtaining a phone interview as well as multiple tips for doing well. I sent a thank-you email but didn't receive a response.

    The interviewer began by describing the seasonal job in NYC which is 4 months starting from June 23rd to October 15th. Then I was only asked three questions. While I was responding, the interviewer would agree and talk casually with me. I then had time at the end to ask questions.

    Ten days after the interview, I got an email and a phone call from Olivia Sinclair congratulating me on being accepted for the position.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Geneseo, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I met with three recent graduates who told me about their daily work life before the actual interview. I had my interview with a partner in the company, and it was mostly conversational. I only remember being asked two questions with others happening naturally in the conversation. There were no behavioral questions. The interviewer was very nice and pleasant to talk to. I applied to the NYC Elevate program which was very competitive and didn't end up getting in. They were very friendly and I appreciated that they called to let me know I didn't get. Overall, it was a good experience.
