Easy Interview

Application

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.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very nice. She simply went through resume and asked few questions that she found interesting on the resume. It was really conversational. A lot of time to ask the interviewer questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I get the call directly from lady and it last about 20 minutes. All the questions are normal and not too difficult. It's all about behavior questions and no technical question. I would recommend to pick up phone through headset so HR can hear you clearly. I think I am too nervous so my voice is quavering.
