    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process from beginning to end was very well structured. The recruiter who contacted me was very responsive, answered all of my questions from beginning to end. The process from the first email to the offer took 30 days. I interviewed with a manager, a managing director, and a director. All three took place the same day back to back in what they called a "super day".

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Case interview, materials were provided in advance, you prep a deck before the interview and present to a director/partner
    Heard back within the same day!

    They fly you out and book a really nice hotel downtown - close to office.

    Post-interview was actually my favorite part. My interviewers were more than willing to schedule long calls to discuss what they enjoyed with the firm and their visions for their teams. Got a great book recommendation too. Had multiple offers from other consulting firms but felt most home at PwC

    I had different circumstances, applied through a specific program. Typically for campus hires there are multiple case interviews. I have done recruiting however, and PwC looks for a high GPA (typically above 3.5 at least) and demonstrated leadership.
