    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Three rounds consisting of one behavioral phone interview with a director, one virtual case interview with a senior advisor, and two behavioral interviews with partners/directors in NYC. The case was emailed to me 48 hours before my scheduled presentation time, so there was plenty of time for preparation.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Friendly and Inquisitive. I love the interviewers. Didn't use intimidation. Questions were about my personality, giving me an impression that they cared about the person. But that could have been because my skills matter less, given that I was applying for an intern.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had an interview with PwC for an advisory role. There were 3 phone rounds. The superday was 4 back to back interviews. The interviews were very professionally done. All the interviews were pretty standard although preparation is a key element to answering most of the questions. They called the next day after Superday saying that an offer would be extended soon. I received an offer but finally ended up going with another Big 4 due a better offer. I guess you should let them know your expectation earlier in the process rather than waiting after superday as this became an issue for me. I enjoyed interviewing with them nevertheless!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview done on campus. The interviewer asked mostly standard behavioral questions and questions about my resume. He also was not scared to go in depth and ask me about my GPA (saying it was lower than most of the other applicants) and asking me to explain it. Was a bit tricky and threw me off guard
