    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly simple, received a call from a recruiter a couple days before the interview. Process moves really quickly. On campus interview and follow up within one week. Applied through the campus job site. Managers were helpful, but interviewer seemed inexperienced.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First were the Elevate interviews. They were really basic and just tried to get to know you. I think it was mostly about your resume anyways. Once arriving at Elevate, it was mostly team-building games to evaluate your style and get to know you more. Then they made internship offers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very laid back, conversational. Don't worry, just relax and be yourself. Know how to talk about your resume and why you want to work for PwC. I did my first round on campus with a manager and then second round with a partner through webcam.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed for an advisory internship in another office but didn't get that for some odd reason. Asked if I'd like to be considered for the assurance position I said sure. Interviewed with a manager and it was mostly behavioral and asked questions related to my resume. Next it was a final round with a MD. Really simple process as they really needed somebody for the position. I had 3 other offers so they were really trying to get me to come. Offered to let me come to the office so I could meet the team and they could take me out to lunch. The MD, manager, and another associate all reached out to me separately while I was trying to make my decision. I appreciate the effort, but I think they should relax a little.

    Reasons for Declining

    I've always heard that PwC was stuck up and it proved to be true during these two interview processes I went thru (advisory first then assurance). Ultimately I decided to go with Accenture: much more competitive offer and a way better security role.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC in November 2016.

    Interview

    There were 2 rounds of interviews, one on campus with the manager and the 2nd one that's virtual. There was a dinner the night before the campus interview where you got a chance to meet the associates and manager. I heard back after 2-3 weeks that I advanced to final rounds (virtual). I received an offer the same week.

    Interview Questions

    • Regular behavioral questions in the first round. The virtual interview is much more conversation like.   Answer Question

    Interview was not bad at all. All behavioral questions. Lasted about 25 minutes or so and the interviewer was relaxed and personable. Use relevant examples that are similar to the position you are interviewing for.
