Had a virtual interview. I was asked a few general questions and behavioral questions. The interviewer was very friendly, and the process was not intensive at all. One of the questions was related to work environment ethics.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    1st round was on campus, was asked many behavioral interview questions. The main purpose is simply to get to know the candidate and see whether the candidate will be easy to work with. Sometimes the interview would just turn into a casual conversation if there are mutual interests.
    2nd round was in the office. Similar behavioral questions. Some interviewers followed a script of questions, other was more conversational.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC (College Park, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very short and interesting; I was surprised because there were no behavioral questions. The interviewer mostly asked questions from my resume. For instance, what skills did you acquire from your previous jobs that are easily transferable to the position you are applying for?

    Interview

    On Campus Interviews are very structured.

    Before you even apply, you start networking at a career expo where you drop off your resume to the recruiter. After the expo, they will invite you to a social where you mingle with the staff before applying for the position.

    When you apply for the position, apply both via the school portal AND PWC's internal webpage.

    If you are selected for a campus interview, they will invite you to a social before the interviews to familiarize you with who you will be interviewing with and what to expect from the interviews.

    After the campus interviews, you will get notice of an office visit - aka final round. This is a 1.5 day event. The evening before the office visit, you are whisked to a fancy restaurant with staff and a manager. That night you stay in the adjoining hotel, for conveniency. The next day is a full-day of Interviews, office tour, and lunch.

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Applied through online portal and was emailed to set up a virtual interview. On interview day talked with a campus recruiter, he asked three questions and then told me I'd hear back in a week. Questions were simple, yet I received a rejection email 5 days later. I don't understand how a company can rule you out by asking questions that require one sentence answers.
