    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Started of with an on campus interview with a partner who was an alum. It went very well. It was more of a discussion than an interview. Very pleasant. Got a call back for a second round interview at the NYC office. Met with three separate interviewers. They were all very cordial and easy to talk to. We went over my resume and had discussions about our goals, the company, and accounting in general. Got the call that day that I had been extended an offer.

    It was a good process. I applied through the Accounting department at my school. They had a pre-interview social where you had a chance to see the office and meet the people. Most of the interviewers were there too so you had a chance to talk to them before the interview. The interview was on campus. I heard back a week or two after the interview.
