The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

3 parts… 30 minute phone screen, 45 minute behavioral interview, and super day. The super day was made up of two 45 minute interviews - one was behavioral and the other was a case presentation. You were given 45 minutes at the start of the super day to go over the material for the car and draw slides for your presentation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted via email to schedule an interview. Was then invited to attend a networking event with several first, second and third-year associates as well as one current PwC partner. The people are very friendly and somewhat casual. Did not have a pretentious vibes as is felt at other firms. The office seems nice and the location is fantastic. However I do feel that the job offerings in the Boston office are somewhat limited when compared to other offices, this is to be expected though.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There were two behavioral interviews over the phone. One was about 30 minutes and the second was 45 minutes and more in depth. The final round involved a case and another 30 minute behavioral interview. The case was not too difficult and the behavioral interviews were pretty straight forward. They involved a few job fit questions too.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview after I applied online. Then I got an email invitation for Superday. Superday is two days long interview event. A group of the interns who passed the first round get to meet and greet on the first day and network. Second day is the actual interviews. Be prepared because the interviewers will ask about your experiences on your resume. Be able to connect the experiences to PwC's values. The recruiters will say you will be informed in two weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is an in depth process that involves multiple interviewers. They will ask questions not necessarily related to your curriculum, but rather based more on a personal basis. They ask questions about the five different dimensions to ensure that you will be a good fit in the company. The questions are not something you can necessarily prepare for.
