    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Got through the first round on campus interview, then they invited me for an office visit, aka "Superday". Start the day around 8:30am, you meet all the interviewees that day, follow by a presentation and a panel discussion (try to ask at least one GOOD question). Then you get assigned to a first year associate that will take you to all your interviews. I interviewed with a manager, a director, and a partner. Everyone was extremely friendly, it was more of a conversation rather than an interview. They want to see if you can hold a decent conversation. Lastly, the first year associate will take you to a group lunch with the other interviewees. I got a call from the partner I interviewed a couple hours later offering me the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    On-campus interview. Invited to an office interview. There was a prenight social the night before the interview to get to know the other applicants and employees. It was very relaxed and fun. The next day was the office visit/interview. It consisted of an office tour, presentation, three 1:1 interviews (Director, Manager, and Partner), lunch, and a panel discussion. It was relaxed yet serious. It was about getting to know the person across from you though. After the interviews we went to lunch with all of the other applicants and some employees and partners. I was contacted the following monday by a partner congratulating me and he extended an internship offer. HR followed up a few days later with the details. Advice: be yourself, relax, and have fun (interviews should be a great/enjoyable experience for both the interviewer and interviewee) (generally speaking, interviews are not as bad as people make them out to be, you have to come prepared though) (remember: a good resume will get you an interview, but you have to get the job)

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Tulsa, OK) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for an internship with PwC through my schools career services. They contacted me via email saying them would like to do an interview on campus. Fairly easy, low pressure. Spoke with the tax partner who gave me an overview of what its like at their office, what their culture is like, etc. Asked basic questions about my availability, some questions about my resume. After that I was contacted via email asking for an office interview. The office interview involved mini-interviews with each member of the tax department, each having questions to ask you about your past or how you would handle a particular situation.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was offered a first round on campus interview with PwC after I applied through my campus career center. The interviewer was really nice and tried to make you feel comfortable. The interviewer initially gives you a brief intro about his/her background before asking you questions. My interview was only 20 minutes, and the only question he asked me was to tell him 3 things about myself. And I had a few minutes left to ask him questions. I didn't receive an offer for second rounds though. I could have failed the interview because I lacked interviewing experience...but the interviewer was definitely not intimidating.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    1st round interviews were held on campus. It consisted of one 30 minute interview in which a senior manager interviewed me. It was a pretty standard interview. Questions about my past/resume and behavioral questions were asked. 2nd round / in-house interviews were held 1-2 months later at the PwC office. It was a half day affair from 9a-2p. The recruiter gave a brief presentation followed by a talk and Q&A with a partner. Then we were introduced to our "office visit buddy." The buddy was basically a 1st year associate that basically guided us around the office to the different places we had to be. We had a little icebreaker with the other interviewees and buddies and then we were led to our interviews. The interviews were held in a vacant office and the interviewers came to that office to interview me. I had two 1-on-1 interviews by a senior manager and a partner, both for 30 minutes. Both were pretty standard but there was a lot of time left for me to ask questions in these interviews. All the interviewees then had lunch with their buddies. After lunch we had a tour of the MOCA/Disney building in downtown LA.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I first received a call from a manager prior to being formally invited to the office. He asked me a series of questions mostly related to my resume. After a few days I received an email invitation to visit the office and interview for the position. I interviewed with three individuals. The basic behavioral questions (worked on a team etc..) were asked. But overall the interviewers justed wanted to see if their personalities would be compatible with mine.
