    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    After exchanging emails, I had a phone interview with a recruiter. The interview was framed as a brief chat but in reality it was a phone interview. The questions asked were mainly about why this position, why this location, career goals etc. The questions weren't difficult nor were there any curve balls. I did feel that I was misled by the recruiter as to the nature of the call as I had no indication beforehand that this phone call was to be an interview. Main takeaway is that any time you speak with a recruiter you should be prepared as if it is going to be an interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter- mainly behavioral questions. I was then contacted by a recruiter at the specific location. The recruiter scheduled an office interview. PwC paid for my flight to the interview, my overnight hotel stay, and reimbursements for taxi fares. The interview was much more casual than I had expected (take this with a grain of sand- I'm not saying your interview will be easy!). I interviewed with a senior manager and a partner. Both conversation were casual and I found myself asking most of the questions. Definitely emphasized my love of travel and love of the city in which the office was located. The interviews were about 30 minutes each. Then I was taken to lunch by 2 staff and 1 senior staff. The lunch was very casual with normal conversations. Overall, I had a great experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    two-day interview. There were about over twenty persons coming for this group interview. I was told that every week there are such one or two group interview going on in this building. And it was relaxing because there are some warm-up activities. But I think the most important part is the 1:1 interview.
