Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at PwC.

Interview

PwC's hiring process is comparable to other consulting firms. I was invited in by a current employee who saw me as an "opportunity hire." This meant meeting senior management and potential coworkers, getting the thumbs up, sharing salary/bonus expectations and being hired. It was a positive experience overall and well done by the company leaders at the time.

    Application

    interviewed at PwC in August 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Mostly behavioral questions. I didn't get a call back and don't really know why, but I think they are definitely different from the other Big 4 firms in that the first interview wasn't technical at all. Only thing I did not like was that he asked about GPA and GMAT score. It's not on the resume for a reason- shouldn't have brought it up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied online, was then contacted by Recruiting manager who asked normal HR type questions (i.e. salary, work authorization, experience). After that I had 4 phone interviews with a Director, manager, senior manager and partner. The interviews were very friendly and cordial mostly wanted to talk through resume and experience. They also set expectations in regards to travel and working hours.

    • No real difficult questions, again mostly talk through resume and experience and why I wanted to work for PWC.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    got another offer from a different consulting firm that I felt more aligned with where I wanted to take my career. I would recomend PWC however.
