    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

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    PwC's hiring process is comparable to other consulting firms. I was invited in by a current employee who saw me as an "opportunity hire." This meant meeting senior management and potential coworkers, getting the thumbs up, sharing salary/bonus expectations and being hired. It was a positive experience overall and well done by the company leaders at the time.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty informal. Had an initial phone screen with a HR recruiter and then an in person interview with two managers and a partner. The interview style was pretty casual. Asked about my background, experience, etc. and then they explained what the role would be like and what the job expectations were. After the interview, I believe I heard back within a few days that I had the role.

    Application

    I interviewed at PwC in August 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Mostly behavioral questions. I didn't get a call back and don't really know why, but I think they are definitely different from the other Big 4 firms in that the first interview wasn't technical at all. Only thing I did not like was that he asked about GPA and GMAT score. It's not on the resume for a reason- shouldn't have brought it up.
