    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Miami, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview process with PWC was very pleasant. I went to a university career fair and got an on-campus interview the next week. There was a pre-interview get together the night before, which was a great way to learn more about the firm in a less formal environment. Everyone I met throughout the process was very kind and easygoing. A little over two weeks after the on-campus interview, I found out I was selected for an office interview. The office interview was scheduled for a few weeks later. It consisted of 3 separate 30-minute interviews, which included one with a partner. There was also a case study involved since it was for an advisory position. They emailed the case study about 3 days before so you have some time to prepare. The morning of the interview they give you some questions to answer about the case study and you have an hour to prepare some handwritten powerpoint-like slides. You have to present your slides to one of your 3 interviewers. They take you out to lunch afterwards.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process included two parts:

    1: Two behavioral interviews on campus
    2: Case Interview and behavioral interviews on site (Chicago)

    The first part included back to back interviews with current managers. The second part included a case study with a partner and another behavioral interview with a partner.

    I heard back the same day as the second round interview in Chicago.

    They paid for everything for the interview in Chicago

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was really helpful, straighforward and too the point. They ask you questions that they would like to see in individuals they would have to work with. A good thing to think about is the airport test, which is commonly used in these kinds of interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    My process went really fast. I had the telephone interview on a Wednesday of the week of 2/9/15. I had my in person interview with 2 directors and a manager that following friday and then the partner interview on a Wednesday evening the following week. All interview were 2-3 business days a part.

    I haven't yet had a response and its been exactly one week since my partner interview. Has anyone received an offer after a week or so? Or how soon did you receive your offer? I heard I did very well and was one of 2 final candidates.
