Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

Interview

Applied online, was then contacted by Recruiting manager who asked normal HR type questions (i.e. salary, work authorization, experience). After that I had 4 phone interviews with a Director, manager, senior manager and partner. The interviews were very friendly and cordial mostly wanted to talk through resume and experience. They also set expectations in regards to travel and working hours.

Interview Questions

  • No real difficult questions, again mostly talk through resume and experience and why I wanted to work for PWC.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

got another offer from a different consulting firm that I felt more aligned with where I wanted to take my career. I would recomend PWC however.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC (Boston, MA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Initially had 2 one-on-one interviews with Directors or Senior Directors. One was a behavior interview, the other was a "mini-case" which he described as just a conversation about the case. Typical stuff, nothing out of the ordinary.

    Second round was 3 one-on-one interviews with Partners in the service line. One was a case (again more of a conversation about a business problem and how I would respond to it), the other two were strictly behavioral.

    Unfortunately, the HR department choose Sunday night at 9PM to call me and let me know there would not be an offer. Separate emails for post-interview feedback were ignored. While the interviewing process was good, these incidents left a seriously foul taste in my mouth.

Pros: “Honestly, there are so many reasons why I love working for this firm, it's difficult to restrict myself to these short descriptions. One of the main strengths that PwC has, and shares...”“Honestly, there are so many reasons why I love working for this firm, it's difficult to restrict myself to these short descriptions. One of the main strengths that PwC has, and shares with its employees, is a very realistic and logical approach to the true nature of the relationship between PwC and the human beings we have working in the PwC family. Flexibility is paramount here so that the real lives we all live are taken into account. In addition, being that PwC is a firm whose global headquarters are in London England, we have more European view of both a healthy work/life balance and a decent amount of vacation so we can enjoy our lives outside of the office as well as from within. The opportunities for professional growth and development are greater that I have ever seen at any firm I've worked for in the past two decades and the massive range of clients we support span a wide range of industries. The positive support and encouragement PwC gives to us all on an individual basis is continuously astounding. I have never been so happy in the workplace and respected both my employer and my colleagues as much as I do in the PwC family.” – Full Review
