    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through my campus career site. I went to a meet and greet where none of the employers seems interested to be there. Very bad vibe. My interview was with a partner who had been there for 27 years and seemed to write me off the second he saw me. Horrible experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Behavioral on campus interview with a onsite case/behavioral interview. Case was sent two days prior to interview which was much better than case interviews for other companies. Each interview was no longer than 40 minutes and was very positive/supportive/interested in hearing what you had to say. They focus a lot on the PwC Professional Framework.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted via email to schedule an interview. Was then invited to attend a networking event with several first, second and third-year associates as well as one current PwC partner. The people are very friendly and somewhat casual. Did not have a pretentious vibes as is felt at other firms. The office seems nice and the location is fantastic. However I do feel that the job offerings in the Boston office are somewhat limited when compared to other offices, this is to be expected though.

    Interview

    There were two behavioral interviews over the phone. One was about 30 minutes and the second was 45 minutes and more in depth. The final round involved a case and another 30 minute behavioral interview. The case was not too difficult and the behavioral interviews were pretty straight forward. They involved a few job fit questions too.
