    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.
