    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed on campus. There are all behavior questions. I was interviewed by two recruiter. And they asked similar questions. And let me to ask a lot questions. I think they may want the person to have more background about this position which called cybersecurity advisory. However, I did not have a lot background. So at the end, we did not have too many words. I do think the preparation of the behavior questions are pretty important and show the knowledge which is related to the job description!

    Interview

    I applied in late september and was notified about a week later that I had an on campus interview. There was a pre-interview dinner, which was very laid back and was meant for us to get to know our interviewers. The next day was the interview, which went over a couple questions about the pwc professional and just generic behavioral questions. About a week later I was notified I advanced to the office visit. The office visit was very nice and comprised of three thirty minute interviews back to back. Overall, those interviews were very easy and I got a call two business days later notifying me that I got the position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic behavioral question interview on campus with an alumnus. Was invited for a superday of 3 interviews, one with a partner and 2 with managers. Thought interviews went well, however my interview with the partner interrupted a phone call with a client. The partner ran to the restroom after the interview as well. Partners have the most say and was surprised when I was not given an offer at first but looking back the partner rushed my interview.
