    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.
      3)Are you ready to travel every week at client location.
      4)How will you handle tough situation in project if client is not satisfied by your work?
      5)How will you maintain good relationship with client?
      6)How long you are in your particular domain/industry?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with a partner I had already met a couple of times so it was very conversational. The second round interviews were through Google hangouts and we had technical difficulties but both people who interviewed me that day were very nice and it didn't even feel like an interview. They pretty much just want to see the kind of person you are and if you're someone they'd like to work with in the future.
