Senior Consultant Interview

Application Details

interviewed at PwC in August 2014.

Interview Details

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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initially had 2 one-on-one interviews with Directors or Senior Directors. One was a behavior interview, the other was a "mini-case" which he described as just a conversation about the case. Typical stuff, nothing out of the ordinary.

    Second round was 3 one-on-one interviews with Partners in the service line. One was a case (again more of a conversation about a business problem and how I would respond to it), the other two were strictly behavioral.

    Unfortunately, the HR department choose Sunday night at 9PM to call me and let me know there would not be an offer. Separate emails for post-interview feedback were ignored. While the interviewing process was good, these incidents left a seriously foul taste in my mouth.
