Applied on campus via resume drop. Got an on campus interview which consisted of a 30-min behavioral and a 45-60 min case that you could prepare for at home. Case questions were given on the day of the interview and were specific to the type of Advisory role you applied to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC in November 2017.

    Interview

    Starts with a dinner social the night before to take advantage of networking (you're interviewer will most likely be there). Back to back interviews the next day, the first is behavioral and the second is a case interview. The case interview was actually harder than the case. The case interview was much more qualitative than quantitative, they want to see structured thinking, overall very positive experience

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Why PwC? Why consulting? Tell me about an interesting article you read recently. Tell me about a time when you had to give someone feedback or criticism. Tell me about a time when you were given vague instructions for a task and had to figure out what to do.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Champaign, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is very generic. First, you will get a behavioral interview to test your personality and culture fit. Then, you will have another case interview. If you perform well in the first two rounds, you will get the invitation to the final round.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Inspirations and Working Style. And more about your personality.   1 Answer

    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!
