    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview which led to an In-person team interview. Everyone was very personable, knowledgeable, and friendly, from the phone screen to the Director. Location was very easy to get to, and they reimburse you for parking if you use that. The team was diverse and honest about challenges, goals, and workload upfront.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied PWC through online by seeing job posting in glassdoor website .The whole process took more then 2 months.First round was initial screen by 2 persons over the phone in 2 weeks followed by F2F with 3 interviews at there office (Chicago location) with Partner and two Directors.

    The overall Interview process was very well till the final F2F round.After that I keep following my HR person to know the result,but never got any concrete answer.They said interview went well but never heard back from HR which looks bit awkward from such a big name.If they don't want to hire you then they should tell clearly.There is no harm to inform the candidate rather then not saying anything to them.

    I was lucky I had another offer and joined the different company rather then joining company who don't disclose anything with the candidate/employee.

    Interview Questions

    • 1)Background about yourself.
      2)Why PWC and Contracting job.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process began with phone screens with 2 leaders in the PwC digital group. After a 2 positive interviews, the partner suggested coming in to meet some people face to face. For some reason, they continued to schedule more phone screens for 20-30 mins.

    After 2 more phone interviews, it was communicated that they were interested in me in different level. This took 4-5 weeks.

    They are still trying to figure out digital within the larger PwC world, similar to other big 4 consulting firms that created digital groups. Most of the people there are from outside PwC through acquisition, will be a challenge for rest of PwC to get agency/digital world.
