    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through my campus career site. I went to a meet and greet where none of the employers seems interested to be there. Very bad vibe. My interview was with a partner who had been there for 27 years and seemed to write me off the second he saw me. Horrible experience.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruitment and had a 30 min phone interview with an employee. After the phone interview, I was invited to the super day in Chicago office. A few days before the super day (about 48 hours) I was emailed material for a case study. You could get familiarized with the case but wouldn't receive questions until the super day. The super day started with about an hour to prep a presentation to answer the questions that they give you. Then, current employees walk you around from interviewer to interviewer. I had 3 one-on-one interviews, and presented my case presentation to the last interviewer (other candidates presented to the first interview, some to the second). Mostly behavioral, situational questions aside from the case. I got a call a few days later with a rejection.
