    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Standard procedures, phone interview with HR, then face-to-face with 2 managers, then final with a partner.
    It seems like they are more interested in hiring fresh grads. They challenge a lot on people who are from corporate environment, which I think it was a little uncomfortable since corporate also have smart professionals, but to me, they pre-judged you that you cannot do the job right. And towards the end, it just seems like the job itself is different from what's actually on the description.
    Just be yourself in the interviews and be confident.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was casual over the phone. Some technical questions in person. I was interviewed by an MD, a manager and 2 senior managers. Had lunch with a Senior Associate. The people were great. The they do work was unimpressive to me. They do not do any quantitative valuations. The skills developed most likely will not be transferable to outside Big 4 valuation work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Two behavioral interviews on campus with Managers, then final rounds at the New York office; one case and one behavioral interview with Managers, then one behavioral with a Partner.

    I believe they are switching the format so that cases will be in the first round, and final rounds will only be behavioral. Advice is to be friendly but do make sure you show your business acumen during the case interview.
