    Advisory Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had an interview with PwC for an advisory role. There were 3 phone rounds. The superday was 4 back to back interviews. The interviews were very professionally done. All the interviews were pretty standard although preparation is a key element to answering most of the questions. They called the next day after Superday saying that an offer would be extended soon. I received an offer but finally ended up going with another Big 4 due a better offer. I guess you should let them know your expectation earlier in the process rather than waiting after superday as this became an issue for me. I enjoyed interviewing with them nevertheless!
