    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews, one on campus, the other in the office. The second round has two interviews and an office tour. The interview questions themselves were pretty typical - behavioral questions, elaborating on your resume, etc. On campus interviewer often has ties to the school, so he/she might ask specific school related questions.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Invited to an in-office "Super Day." Event was from 8am-2pm. Two interviews - one with a partner and one with a director. Both were in different departments. Standard behavioral questions, and friendly office. Went to lunch with a couple of associates. Nothing too difficult to handle, but one interview was with an economist, which did not go too well, so the rejection was not a surprise.

    Interview

    Informal. Mainly behavior related questions. Partner was super nice and basically discussed sports. I believe they were mainly trying to figure out my personality and whether I would fit into the public accounting culture versus how strong I was technically.

    Interview

    First on-campus interview, and the in-house interview for the second round. My interviewer was really nice and the conversation was quite casual. Make sure that you are well-prepared, but at the same time it wouldn't hurt to know things outside of the field such as current news, your hobby, etc.
