    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Pre-interview process: Applied through university career site. Found out I got an interview about a week later. First round interview was about a week after that. 1st round interview: Had a networking session the night before the interview on campus. Met with several associates, managers, a director and a partner. I honestly think this was one of the reasons why I eventually got an offer - because I networked my @$$ off. Next day, I had a 30-minute interview with the partner who I had met the previous night. Asked really basic questions about my resume and experience. Found out the next day that I had been selected for super-day that would be 2 weeks later. Super-day interviews: Had a dinner with some of the staff the night before at a nice restaurant. Grabbed a glass of white wine and immediately found 2 partners to talk to (again, networking my @$$ off). Then ate dinner and chatted with one of the partners, an associate, and a couple of the other interviewees. The next day, we all got breakfast with a bunch of associates. After we walked to the office, sat through a 30-minute presentation, and immediately were put through 3 30-minute interviews, first with a director, and then with 2 managers. The interviews were all pretty basic, asking about my resume, experience, and then asking some behavioral questions "because they had to." Afterwards, I was brought to a room where they gave me sheets about all the details of working (health benefits, tech benefits, etc.). Then all of the interviewees and some associates walked to a nearby restaurant and got lunch at a nice restaurant. THEN we walked back to the office and sat through another 30-minute presentation. And THEN, FINALLY, the interview was over. I found out the next Monday that I had been extended an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC in May 2013.

    Interview

    It was incredibly casual. Most applicants shouldn't worry about the interview process. It was more of a conversation than an actual interview. A mock interview will have you well prepared for this kind of interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (McLean, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    On-campus recruiting for associate / entry-level position. One-on-one meeting with recruiter on campus, in which I expressed interest in working in the DC metro area. Then I got a call from the DC metro office inviting me for an in-person interview. They flew me out, and I had a series of three interviews - with a manager, director, and partner. There were 'get-to-know-you' interviews, wanting to know about my experience, interests, and hobbies. Mostly to feel out whether I was a fit for the office. The offer came the next week.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was the standard procedure as stated on the website. I was always well informed of the next step and the interviewers were very welcoming and that put me at ease. It was a smooth overall process. They asked about things on my CV and personal acheivements and then what I knew about the organisation and why I chose to be there. A lot of this information is available on their website, etc so it is worth doing that research
