    Summer Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied via on campus recruiting and attended most if not all of the recruiting events. Never heard back and neither did anyone else that I know of who got a no. The only people who even merited an email were the select few who got an interview. Rather unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Changed the order/process a bit this year for advisory (or at least in my region). Applied through PwC's website and my campus career's website for an on-campus interview. I was notified shortly after that I was selected for an interview. First round was a 90 minute case interview with a director (45 mins to prepare slides, 45 mins for presentation/ interview). The case was sent to me over email 48 hours before the interview. The 45 mins to prepare slides goes by quickly, so make sure to read the case carefully beforehand and prepare notes to bring in with you.

    Notified a week later that I had moved on to final round of interviews. This time the interview was conducted over skype. Much more behavioral and some fit questions relating to the five pillars of the PwC professional.

    I applied though my university's campus recruiting website and was given an on campus interview. The interview was very basic and they asked mostly situational questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Athens, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's job site. Scheduled an interview with the career center. First interview was easy, mainly behavioral questions. They made the second round decision later that day for most people, but I got mine the day after. Scheduled a google handout interview with three directors. They were all different; the first one was really friendly, second was more professional, and the third one was a mix of both.

    The next day, I got a call from them, however it was not an offer. They thought I would fit another position better, and is considering me for that other position. In general, I have no idea what is going on right now. Feeling a bit lost...
