    Interview

    It was pretty standard campus recruiting, HR asked 6 questions, it's about half an hour. The HR was not very casual. I needed to bring up lots of points on the table by driving the conversation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the website. PwC doesn't have on-campus interviews at my school, so my first interview was with a recruiter on the phone. He focused on the whole leadership part of the PwC Professional. I really didn't think I did well, so I was surprised when I got invited to the Superday in NYC. PwC paid for everything, it was very nice. Stayed at a great hotel right next to their office. There's a pre-interview day dinner where you meet with your greeter and have dinner and play a game. This was a nice way to at least get a feel for the people who work there. The next day, you start with a breakfast and presentation on the NYC office and go over some of the benefits of working at PwC. Then you have three one-on-one interviews. My interviews were with a senior associate, manager, and partner. Everyone was nice, just try to make conversation and be yourself and you'll be fine. Once you get to this point, the job is yours to lose. They like your background enough to drop money on you coming to visit so just make sure you can speak to people and not be a weirdo.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had my first interview on campus. I met my interviewer the night before, and we got along quite well. The interview was very conversational. A couple of days later I was invited to the office for the SuperDay interviews. This consisted of a pre-night get together, a morning information session, three interviews (2 senior associates and 1 partner), and finally an office tour. They also assigned you an employee to take you around the office the day of the interview, and to talk to the night before the interview. Mine was a huge resource for information and insight into what life is like at PwC. I had also never interacted with employees from this office or the industry I am interested in before, so they were great to talk to. Some advice for the interviews: know, understand, and be prepared to apply the PwC Professional framework to past experiences. They are very straightforward with letting you know that their interviews are based off of this. Also ask questions that you sincerely want answered and that you are ready to discuss after the answer has been given. Finally, just use this opportunity to see if PwC is the right fit for you.
