    Elevate Summer Leadership Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Detroit, MI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First interviewed with someone from the national recruitment department. A week later interviewed with a local partner. The second interview was much more official, and it came in two parts. The first half hour is spent chatting with a greeter and lasted a half-hour. The purpose of it was to get you used to the google chat style interview, which was a great help. I was skeptical at first, but I see in retrospect how it helped.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (San Diego, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a smooth process, almost too manufactured, really. For you to get a second interview, you must have had lots of face time with the people most involved in the hiring process. The recruiter, partners, anybody that's active during campus recruiting.

    Elevate Program Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (College Park, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university's career services website and was notified in late February that I was selected for an interview. My interview was during the first week of March on campus at University of Maryland, College Park. My interviewer was a partner which intimidated me at first, but after meeting him it was clear he was very friendly and supportive. He mainly asked behavioral questions and went through my resume and asked about specific items on there. About two weeks later, I was notified that I had been selected for a second (this time virtual) interview with a manager. This interview was pretty similar to the first one, very laid back, but more behavioral questions. The next day, I received my offer!
