    The first round of interviews was done on campus as the St. Louis office came to our university. I wanted to get the conference at the Chicago office, so I informed them of that during the interview. My interview went well and they sent my profile to the Chicago office who then contacted me to attend a virtual interview in which I interviewed with two different employees for about an hour.

    Advisory Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    First round phone interview with recruiter. Second round with manager on phone (behavioral). Third round flown out for super day which was just one behavioral and one case. They sent the case 48 hours before the interview so you have time to study. Process was slightly unorganized and I was not impressed with my behavioral interviewer. He grilled me on my knowledge of the pharma industry (applied as generalist) and what my favorite podcasts were (he went to a rival LAC which i think might have been why).
