    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online on Feb 2, 2018 and was contacted by HR within a week for a short screening round. Next round was with a hiring manager. After clearing this round, was called onsite at Chicago office for an interview with two directors. Got positive updates from directors and was scheduled for one last round that was a phone call with one of the partners (lasted for about 12-15 mins). Within 2-3 days, got a call from HR extending me a verbal offer and offer letter was sent a week after that.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Round 1 with HR: just a normal discussion regarding tell me about yourself, salary expectations, location preference, when do you graduate, etc.
      2) Round 2 with hiring manager: this round is purely based on resume, so know your resume well. It’s a technical round.
      3) Round 3 with 2 directors: behavioral and a bit of technical
      4) Round 4 with partner: complete behavioral, why pwc? Tell me about yourself? Etc
      Hope this helps, good luck people! I hope you all get through. :-)
