    Management Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    I had one case interview over the phone (was supposed to be a video conference but the interviewer was on site w/o computer access) and one behavioral phone interview. Then I had two behavioral interviews at one of the PwC offices in NYC. You're given the case in advance so make sure you study it and anticipate questions they could ask. Overall everyone was very friendly and it was a rather standard interview process. The behavioral interviews were largely centered on the five dimensions of the "PwC Professional". I would look into each of these dimensions and prepare examples of how you have exemplified these characteristics in your work/school experiences.

    Associate Tester Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process took a month. I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter. I initially was going to have another phone interview with someone else but it did not happen and I went to an on-site interview. The person gave me a case study and I answered it. The second person asked me more technical questions and methodologies. The third person and another person on the phone asked me more questions about my experience.

    Each interview with each person felt very awkward and uncomfortable the entire time. I just could not wait to get out.

    In the end, I did not get an offer because I did not have experience with automated testing, which I initially stated at the first phone interview.

    Tax Associate Tax Core Services Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied on the website through campus, waited for 1 month to get the first interview. First interview was a 15’ phone interview ( mine was like 10’) since the interviewer was late). It is hard to judge a candidate through 15’ phone call and decide whether to move forward. I got an email 2 weeks later stated that they can’t move me forward.
    Pretty disappointing because I really like the company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    It is a little tough. Everytime, the interviewer ask me question, I answered. I felt like she was unsatified with my answers. And it was a short process, only like 17 mins.
