    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Did the interview through my University. Had a bowling social the night before the interviews, then had a single interview the next day. Interview wasn't too bad, we had it done inside the university at the career centers office. We had a little over 35 applicants and they said they were only accepting 2 or 3. Overall experience was good, everything was set up professionally and done professionally.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Tough one, a lot of behavioral questions. Many about teamwork. It is a senior manager who interviewed me. Nice guy but very serious. Keep asking about teamwork if he thinks you didn't prepare well for it.

    It was at the PwC main office headquarters. It was very relaxed, very calm, and very informative. We began with a nice breakfast and then an information session which spanned the first hour. Afterwards we were interviewed three times each interview approximately thirty minutes each.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round was on-campus. A graduate of my university interviewed me. It was relatively laid back and we made a decent connection. Second round was through Google Hangouts (virtual). I wasn't expecting most of the questions that were asked. The interviewer was nice but you could tell I hadn't done well by the end. I would have preferred an in-person interview but this was the procedure. Definitely a company I would have liked to work for.

    This was a great interview experience. PwC put on a great superday at their office in the seaport district of Boston. The day started off with an informative PowerPoint about the company.
