Summer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at PwC in February 2014.

Interview Details

The interview was simple and straightforward. Basic questions about past experiences/resume, etc. Some basic behavioral questions. No case questions or anything tricky. However, the interviewer really liked the candidate before me, and was quite rude to me. He messed up my name three times in the interview (I have a very common name, he just did not put in the effort to remember it) and was overall quite rude. This doesn't seem like a company where people are happy working.

    On campus interview and in office interview including lunch with lower level employees.

    Interview Questions
    • All of it was behavioral. The part that tripped up most people was the meal. People didn't realize that was still part of the interview and they should behave. People would go crazy ordering a bunch of food cuz PWC was paying or they would lack all table manners.   View Answer

    Met with PwC at two career fairs on campus before applying to the posting in our undergrad career services. I was invited to the first round interviews, held in the career services office.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met with recruiters throughout college and finally had an interview my first semester senior year. The first interview was very standard questions. Questions included group projects, leadership roles, and extracurricular activities. For the second round office interviews, it was more of a "getting to know you" interview. The interviewees wanted to know more about me as a person and why I wanted to work at PWC and not another Big Four Firm.
