    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I originally applied for an on campus interview through my schools career services website. The first interview was pretty casual, mostly behavioral based questions. The next interview round was conducted via google hangout, and included interviews with multiple PwC partners. Make sure you're showing your personality, and portraying what about you makes you fit for the position. It's a competitive position so make yourself stand out from the crowd.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional from HR to interview greeters and interviewer. The interviewer was very cold and clearly not interested in what I had to offer. But interviews are two way streets and this experience goes to show that not all firms are the same.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty informal. Had an initial phone screen with a HR recruiter and then an in person interview with two managers and a partner. The interview style was pretty casual. Asked about my background, experience, etc. and then they explained what the role would be like and what the job expectations were. After the interview, I believe I heard back within a few days that I had the role.
