Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2016.

Interview

MBA Summer Internship - 2 interviews back to back - all behavioral questions. One was incredibly cold & all but told me I wasn't good enough. It was very confusing as to why I was even asked to interview if I was just going to be treated so badly. All the employees seemed very pleased with themselves but I couldn't discern what made them so spectacular. After interviewing with all of the Big 3 and the Big 4, PwC was 100% the most negative and pointless interview process I'd been through. If this is how they treat candidates, where we're interviewing them and they should be putting their best face forward, it makes me question how they treat their employees.

    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

    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.
