    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position. I was invited for an interview within a week. I was an out of area candidate so my interviews were conducted via Google Hangout. I first interviewed with a Director. She was very friendly and the interview was very conversational. It lasted 50 minutes. A week later, I had an interview with a partner. As with the Director, I very much enjoyed my interview. She was friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. My partner interview lasted a little over 45 minutes. I was told I would hear back within a week but I still have not heard back (2 weeks later). I am guessing they went with another candidate which is a shame because this is my first choice. Overall, I had a positive experience with PwC and their interviewing process.

    Interview

    Contacted through on-campus recruiting. Had to schedule an interview through Skype since I wasn't in town that day. 45 min case prep, 30 min behavioral, 30 min case presentation. Different interviewers for behavioral and case presentation.

    Both interviewers were very nice, behavioral questions were as expected, describe this project, describe this experience working in a team, etc.
    Case background information was given 48 hours beforehand and then five questions were given 45 minutes before.

    Definitely prepare for the case extensively and figure out how you want to organize your slides.

    Heard back within one business day.
