    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruitment and had a 30 min phone interview with an employee. After the phone interview, I was invited to the super day in Chicago office. A few days before the super day (about 48 hours) I was emailed material for a case study. You could get familiarized with the case but wouldn't receive questions until the super day. The super day started with about an hour to prep a presentation to answer the questions that they give you. Then, current employees walk you around from interviewer to interviewer. I had 3 one-on-one interviews, and presented my case presentation to the last interviewer (other candidates presented to the first interview, some to the second). Mostly behavioral, situational questions aside from the case. I got a call a few days later with a rejection.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The phone interview lasts for around 25 mins. Some general questions are asked about your personality, your experience and your understanding of PwC.

    I feel like the interview questions are same for everyone as it is outsourced to another external party. The questions are not really difficult but more on your general ability.

    For example, there is some situational questions, about your team work, challenges faced and how you overcome it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Totally have 4 rounds of interviews. First was an interview with HR, the second round was interviewed by a senior manager, the third was a case interview, which you would be given the case 48 hours prior to the interview. 45 mins before the interview you would be provided with the questions. The first three rounds were all conducted via phone or google hangout. the final round was onsite and consisted of two back to back behavior interviews. One with a manager and another with a partner. The overall experience was not too bad, the case was pretty straightforward and behavior questions were just like those typical questions you could possibly find on the internet.
