    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The total interview process was pretty nice and very respectful. It was a 30 mins interview, and most of the questions they asked were not very hard to answer. I did not really adjust the pace to answer those questions. I took too long time to answer one question, and it was getting a little bit hurry to go through all of the questions later.
    Good luck with everyone who is interested! Great company to work for.

    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.

    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.

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA).

    Accounting Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied online via careers website. Had phone interview with someone from Talent Acquisition, interview was for 45mins. A lot of behavioural questions, I think the interview could be cut shorter and questions asked were repetitive in nature.

     Was scheduled for in-person interview the following day, person from PWC Talent Acquisition was very responsive and accommodating to my schedule.

    Met with Hiring Manager the following week and interview was nothing formal more of a conversation, which made me very relaxed and provided a highly positive experience. I guess that is why telephone interview is so long, try to get the HR crap out of the way.
    I received a tour of the office and I was on my way.

    Talent person followed up the next day in regards to how the interview went and I am currently awaiting to hear back from them.
