    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Florham Park, NJ).

    Interview

    I applied online via the PwC Careers page. A recruiter contacted me within a week for a phone interview, which lasted about 30 minutes.

    I was very quickly (within several days) contacted by the recruiter to set up an in-person interview.

    Two weeks later I was interviewed in the office individually by four different managers over two hours.

    Each manager had a specific set of questions to ask and sat with me for thirty minutes.

    1) The first asked me about myself very generally, why I was interested in working at PwC and a quick rundown of my past experiences,
    2) The next asked very specific details about my past and experiences, pinning down exactly what I would be doing in my current role and trying to understand if I was capable in those areas,
    3) The third talked about my career path and ability to bring innovation to the team, and
    4) The last one asked a few questions on why I was leaving my current job. This person was the most senior manager and appeared to just be there to sign off on me overall.

     I was offered the job within a week after that.

    Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Florham Park, NJ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my University. The night before the first round of interviews, PWC had a few representatives come and talk to us to make us feel comfortable. The interview on the next day were really conversational. We went over my resume and the skills I used for my jobs. The second round of interviews were a little more difficult. It was kind of intimidating going to their home office, but they try their best to make you feel comfortable. The questions they asked in the interviews were based on the "PWC Professional" chart. The interviewers were really nice, just make sure you have a lot of examples of how you showed leadership and performed in the workplace.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Florham Park, NJ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I first went through a phone interview and got invited to superday the next week. The phone interview was with the office recruiter. She just asked questions about my resume. I go to superday and go through three interviews. Interviewed with a manager, director, and partner. I did not expect it but the interviews were more conversational. I would suggest trying to show your qualifications through the conversation. The partner was the easiest interview. We talked about countries we visited and we talked about his kids.
