    Management Consulting Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the intern position of management consulting. Applied in Jan 2017 and initially received a reject for the same. But in March end I received a mail from the same recruiter asking me to apply to 2 links she had mentioned in the email, one of them being the management consulting intern link. I had 4 interviews in total, 3 behavioural and 1 case interview. First 3 interviews went swiftly, but my last behavioural interview was with a lady who's a principal at PwC Boston office via Google Hangouts. She was absolutely disinterested in what I had to tell and was having her lunch while she was interviewing me. Also, she was late by 5 mins to join the Hangout Call. For every answer I had to her question, she kept making a face and had something to oppose it with. Basically, she broke down my confidence totally. If this is the way her interviewer would have treated her back in the days when was interviewing for PwC, I wonder how she would have reacted.

    Interview Questions

    • Hypothetical case study given, but for practice the case studies on their website can be referred to.
      For behavioural, a little resume walk thru, and tell me a time kind of questions from office and personal life.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC in May 2017.

    Interview

    Phone, Phone then in person triple panel interview. Started out and applied to a job online, then got a call a month later. Simple chat to get to know me. later that day a second recruiter called me to schedule an in person interview. Also, during this time had to complete a simple Emotional IQ and Simple skills test. Arrived at my local PwC office and was given a presentation along with 6 other candidates. After the presentation we each were lead to our own conference room where department heads that were interested in each candidate were able to come and interview us in turn. All in all it was very interesting way to do an interview session. (I liked it)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Columbia, SC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After completing the application online, I was then given the opportunity for a brief phone screen with a recruiter. About one month later I was contacted for an in person interview that consisted of (3) thirty minute interviews with different people within the company. After the interview we were told we would hear something back from HR within one week. Unfortunately, three weeks have since passed and I have not heard anything back - positive or negative- despite my efforts to follow up. Pretty disappointing.
