    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Seattle, WA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Typical campus recruiting process: campus interview with a manager or partner then an office visit with 3 rounds of interviews and a social afterwards. Everyone is extremely nice and answers any and all questions you may have. After the process I was notified fairly quickly about their decision.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online but then reached out to folks on linkedin. Definitely wouldn't have moved forward without pestering people for a referral

    Phone interview -basic questions (strengths and weaknesses, etc),

    2nd phone interview- talked to a manager at PwC advisory, also standard questions about academic background, proudest moment, how you deal with multiple projects at one time, your analytical skills,

    then

    3 rounds on inperson interviews with advisory team members

    Standard questions about background, dealing with clients, my knowledge of the industry the advisory position was assigned to, Why PwC?

    Did not get offer, but I had to call and email about 10 times to find this out. It's a big company, so this is sadly usually the case- you have to run over many hurdles just to finally hear back from someone
