    I have been working at PwC full-time (More than a year)


    Great upward mobility for entry level positions. Lots of opportunity to move to various groups within company to learn different specialities (advisory, audit, tax, or different industry focuses). Company has invested money in good training programs to not only learn your industry, but to also learn about emerging technology.


    Expect extremely long hours.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PwC in June 2018.


    After talking with a recruiter I was set up with an over the phone technical screening the next day. The technical screening lasted about 30 minutes and was centered around questions about my experience, but was pretty conversational.

    After the technical interview I received an email scheduling me for two in person interviews a couple of days later. These interviews were with managers and were also pretty conversational. Mainly chatting about what projects I had worked on and how I handle difficult situations. Then we went on to discussed the role.

    Overall they were relaxed, conversational interviews compared to some others I've had
