I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2014.
Interview Details – It was two rounds interview. The first one was on campus, completely behavioral questions, with a director from SP&R team. I got an email three days later saying that my second would be in two weeks on Friday.
Before the second interviews about 2 days, the recruiter would send out a case and I was supposed to read to prepare for the interview. During the interview day, they gave me 45 minutes to prepare slides for presentation. The interviews went well with one partner and two managers. I presented the case to one of the two managers.
The partner called on Monday to extend internship offer.
Negotiation Details – Not negotiable
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – Was introduced to Capital Projects by a partner. From there, the process was pretty rigorous. Be prepared for no less than 4 interviews. I had 6 in total, from HR Manager through Principal. Interviews were great and team seems strong. Biggest concern was HR switched managers during final hiring so salary negotiations became a bit more difficult. In the end got a solid offer though.
Interview Question – How much do you currently make? Don't believe what you read on the internet! It was a relief stating my salary. Why would I want to go through a 4 month hiring process only to find out that the expectations were way off? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The compensation is good to start: 3 weeks off, shut down during Christmas. Tough to change. I did ask for a sign-on bonus though and got it.

Interview Details – Overall, great experience. I had two interviews.
1st round - on campus
2nd round - in their office which consisted of three interviews (2 associate and 1 partner)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in February 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through campus career website, within 3 weeks got a call to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was very simple probably lasted 20 minutes basic fit questions, walk me through your resume and asked about classes I've taken. About 2 weeks after that got a call asking from me to come into the office for an Interview day. 2 weeks later they fly me out and put me up in a hotel the night before. The day consisted of 3 1:1 interviews back to back with a partner, manager, and sr. associate. The one with the partner was the the least stressful, very straight forward questions about my background and resume, he only asked a few questions, I had to ask several to keep the conversation going. The other two were harder, mostly behavioral and about 5 or 6 technical. the technical questions were not that hard basic corporate finance and valuation models. After the interviews I was taken out to lunch by my host and a couple first year associates. Got the call the next morning from the partner extending me the offer.
I would say the most important thing is to really research everything about the position (specifically the industry sector and line of service) and the company and come prepared with 5-10 intelligent questions about them. A good portion of each interview comes from your questions, they have you dictate the conversation. Overall a good experience, everyone in the san fran office was very nice and accommodating.
Interview Question – Walk me through the DCF model. How would you determine a valuation factor to compare one company to its industry? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Internship, would not recommend negotiating, there are plenty of other qualified students who would do it for less.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.
Interview Details – There were two part of interviews -- on campus interview and on site interview. and before interview there was a pre-interview dinner to meet the staffs. The recruiters are really nice so you don't need to get too nervous. in the dinner and interviews you would get a lot of chance to ask them anything you want to know about the company. Don't wast your chance, prepare well and ask as many questions as you can and want.
Interview Question – In the interview I mentioned a project I've done and then the interviewer was interested in it and asked the detail. So to impress the interviewer, I suggest to prepare well for all the details of each project you did and don't mention anything you are not well prepared of. Answer Question
