    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    8 in-person interviews with both behavioral and technical questions (5 directors and 3 partners). Each was 30 minute long. Take-home FDD case study was part of the interview process. The level of case study was mediocre as long as you have good understanding of FDD.

    Interview

    I interviewed at my university. It was nothing special. The interviewer spent more time yawning than talking to me. He did not want to be there. Typical why did you pick this field, what do you like about accounting questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC.

    Very straightforward. You will usually have an interview with a manager and a partner. Most of the questions are either personality based or about your experience (though they will usually not go line through line on the resume).

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your experience working on group projects.
      Describe your knowledge of an audit.

    Interview

    On Campus Interviews are very structured.

    Before you even apply, you start networking at a career expo where you drop off your resume to the recruiter. After the expo, they will invite you to a social where you mingle with the staff before applying for the position.

    When you apply for the position, apply both via the school portal AND PWC's internal webpage.

    If you are selected for a campus interview, they will invite you to a social before the interviews to familiarize you with who you will be interviewing with and what to expect from the interviews.

    After the campus interviews, you will get notice of an office visit - aka final round. This is a 1.5 day event. The evening before the office visit, you are whisked to a fancy restaurant with staff and a manager. That night you stay in the adjoining hotel, for conveniency. The next day is a full-day of Interviews, office tour, and lunch.
