The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (San Francisco, CA) in November 2010.

The interview was quite basic. it consisted with an informal meet and greet with a "buddy" for the day and then it was a series of four, more or less, behaviorally based interviews: two partner interviews and two manager / director interviews

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC in January 2009.

    Interview

    Initial Interview was two half-hour interviews with two different managers. One was behavioral, the other was case-based. The case was from a book of a dozen or so cases and the interviewer tried to pick a case that matched with my background. Second interview was more involved. It started with coffee with 2 1-3 year consultants. There was 3 interviewees there. We talked for 45 minutes or so with them predominantly answering our questions. Then, we had 3, 1/2 hour interviews with various senior consultants/managers that were behavioral based. Some were well prepared, one I think hadn't even looked at my resume yet. The last part involved a 30-minute presentation by the HR person and then 2 other junior consultants answered more questions.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Seattle, WA) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of four one on one interviews with each level of the department, each interview lasted for half an hour. I interviewed with a staff, senior, manager, and director. Questions during each of the interviews were focused on understanding my experience, work habits, and problem solving skills. In addition to making sure you have experience that fits with their practice they also want to know that you are ready to work long hours with a good attitude and that you are ready to deal with some potentially demanding clients.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online after week I got email inviting to complete online assessment numerical and verbal reasoning within 5 working days, Its fairly routine if you done any online assessment. Once I completed the online test I had email confirming I have successfully passed and I will be invited to interview and expect a call to go through the process. everything was going well until I told them I’m dyslexic, after emailing them 4 time I had a call at night day before the interview. Everything felt like they were ticking boxes to cover them self’s. they arranged feedback call week after but no call. so much for diversity and inclusion nonsense.

    Interview Questions

    • Case study scenario, I had to go through case study read and analysis all the details, make recommendations based on findings. I would recommend looking at the balance sheet and company’s financials.   Answer Question
