    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Athens, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's job site. Scheduled an interview with the career center. First interview was easy, mainly behavioral questions. They made the second round decision later that day for most people, but I got mine the day after. Scheduled a google handout interview with three directors. They were all different; the first one was really friendly, second was more professional, and the third one was a mix of both.

    The next day, I got a call from them, however it was not an offer. They thought I would fit another position better, and is considering me for that other position. In general, I have no idea what is going on right now. Feeling a bit lost...

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Athens, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus site. I heard back very quickly and had an on campus interview 5 days later. The interview was 45 minutes long. My interviewer starting by talking about the company and the position I was applying for. He then asked me three behavioral questions. All of my answers were pulled from my resume and we talked about them very deeply. The interviewer asked me a lot of side questions and really wanted to understand how I grew from my past experience. He then left time for questions at the end.

    Two weeks later I heard back that I was selected for final round interviews. This interview was a 30 minute virtual interview. Same kind of thing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    Amazing! One on campus interview, three individual office interviews with two partners and a manager, and one team based interview during two-day office visit. The atmosphere was friendly and somewhat casual, yet professional. People seemed to really enjoy what they do as well as working within their teams. Employees loved fielding questions about their work and learning more about the candidates. Of all the public accounting firms I interviewed with, PwC had the friendliest and most accessible people.
