    Senior Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The Interview process is too slow . They take 1 round in 3 weeks and further update you the feedback after 10 days and that too when you follow-up with them. I gave 2 rounds of interview after the second round I was told after multiple follow-ups that they can't proceed further . I don't mind a negative feedback but atleast negative/positive they should care to provide feedback after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The Interview questions were not related to my resume. The interviewer knew nothing about my skill which he himself told during the interview but he picked something he had knowledge of . I told him whatever I knew , but I was not selected. I think they should get the interview scheduled with the interviewer who is knowledgeable of the skill set of the candidate , not the one who is free to take an interview.   2 Answers

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral and fit based questions. Nothing related directly to accounting. Walk through resume, future career ambitions, feelings about the firm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very rigorous interview, you would think I was interviewing for an Executive level. All behavioral questions (15), I believe they wanted me to fail, however, I answered all to the best of my ability. I sensed from the start of the interview, they had already selected the candidate and this interview was a formality.

    • All behavioral questions (15) related to the framework, and one normal question at the end. Why PWC?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    My first interview was on campus. I talked to an Manager. It was very conversational. Then I got invited for a Super day in NYC. I was put in a hotel overnight. It was three interviews and a presentation on the company. MAKE sure you pay attention in the presentation because a Partner will ask you a question on the 5 sections of an PwC professional. One interview was with a Senior Associate and the other two was with Partners. One Partner plays bad cop. I received an offer 2 hours later via phone.
