    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Overall, the experience you get with PwC is going to be very professional, which reflects upon their culture. Nice people, but not particularly warm. I interned there over the summer, and did not enjoy my engagement team. I am actually very torn between Deloitte and PwC as one has better culture and the later has a larger client base in New York (and the Mid town location is not bad either)
    They definitely ask you a lot of questions that are related to the current economic trends just to see if you have been keeping up. Comparing to other firms, their interview questions focused less on the behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think caused today's economic meltdown? Do you think stricter regulation will prevent that?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    The interview was a pleasant experience. While there was "getting to know you" type questions in the beginning, the rest of the interview was mainly filled with behavioral questions. There was a phone interview with human resources, an interview with a manager and then a final interview with a partner.
