Senior Associate - Advisory Interview

Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

Interview

The behavioral questions were not unexpected. It was good experience because the entire hour was conversational. The interviewers were very nice. For the case interview (I delivered a presentation), I saw the amount of questions asked is inversely proportionate to the level of depth and breadth I incorporated in my presentation.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied PWC through online by seeing job posting in glassdoor website .The whole process took more then 2 months.First round was initial screen by 2 persons over the phone in 2 weeks followed by F2F with 3 interviews at there office (Chicago location) with Partner and two Directors.

    The overall Interview process was very well till the final F2F round.After that I keep following my HR person to know the result,but never got any concrete answer.They said interview went well but never heard back from HR which looks bit awkward from such a big name.If they don't want to hire you then they should tell clearly.There is no harm to inform the candidate rather then not saying anything to them.

    I was lucky I had another offer and joined the different company rather then joining company who don't disclose anything with the candidate/employee.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Focused on "fit" mostly, some review of resume, but overall its about your fit with the firm culture & people. Key question is: "Why PwC?" so make sure you have an answer! 3 rounds of interviews (phone screen, phone interview, then multiple interviews during final rounds)

    Behavioral Interview with extremely nice group of people. Be personable and make sure PwC is a good fit for you before accepting. There is not a whole lot you can do to prepare other than being confident in your abilities and confident that PwC is a good place with you for a good reason. Beyond that, be comfortable with travellng and open to learning.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    MBA on campus recruiting - 2 first round interviews that were just behavioral. Then 2nd round was in Chicago for CIPS - Customers. Interviewed with head of CIPS customer, a director and a manager. The case was emailed out 23 hours ahead of interview, could research on internet and more or less guess the slides you would need to make. You only had to answer 1 or more of the questions they gave you on the day (choose the most important factors and at least some quant analysis if possible).

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was fast and smooth. I applied to a role, had completed all of my interviews within the same week, and had an offer letter the next week. The recruiter was fairly responsive and helpful, but wasn't crystal clear on exactly where I would be based. The directors/partners I interviewed with were able to answer any and all of my questions, and accurately described the role I now have.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Denver, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process involved three phone interviews and 2 in-person interviews. I was well received in all but one interview and really enjoyed most of the people I met. I think my interview with the manager was agenda driven and competitive. I received a lot of unsolicited background information on her career that was not requested. I'm not sure if our personality would have meshed well.
