    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Met with a partner in the office that I selected in my preferred location. The firm had many associates there as greeters to help ease the nerves as much as possible. It was really just a conversation for the second half of the interview, with the first half including a resume walk through, and certain behavioral questions. So far I was extended a final round interview!

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Horrible, partner was not engaged. The whole interview process took around 30 minutes. The partners seem very cocky. The firm did not seem welcoming at all. It seemed like they were picky with their people.
