    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of four one on one interviews with each level of the department, each interview lasted for half an hour. I interviewed with a staff, senior, manager, and director. Questions during each of the interviews were focused on understanding my experience, work habits, and problem solving skills. In addition to making sure you have experience that fits with their practice they also want to know that you are ready to work long hours with a good attitude and that you are ready to deal with some potentially demanding clients.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with HR - they asked me standard questions like why PwC and what technical skills I have

    First round interview with Director/Manager - standard behavioural questions - really allowed me to ask a lot of questions

    Second round interview with Senior Manager/Manager - a little bit harder but similar to first round interview

    Straightforward. Questions you would expect at a big four interview. Only thing to look out for would be case studies, which can nab people. You can find very similar practice case studies online.

    Interview Details

    I've sent my cv and cover letter and they called me 4 weeks later for an interview. It was a personal interview with a director and consultant, asking me personal questions. Later on, I had to fill in a lot of papers with my personal data.

    2 weeks later I received my offer. I had to state when I could begin and what the period was that I wanted to work at the Sao Paulo office

    Later I had to go to the lawyer office to get my paper work in order.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Application process took several stages. Firstly - screening, then - Numerical Reasoning Test ( similar to SHL test) and Verbal Reasoning Test (putting in a missing element in the logical puzzle), then - onsite english knowledge test ( 'True-False-Not Given' questions, 'choose the right headline' questions, grammar etc.). If you are successful so far, you get an invitation for two or three interviews with Senior Consultant(s) and (Senior) Manager(s), where you can be asked about your education, motivation, previous work experience, knowledge of the industry etc.
    After that you get warmed up with several brain teasers. Try to listen carefully and feel free to take some time to think about the answer.
    In the end, they give you a business-related case. Again don't hesitate to ask for more information and do your best to persuade the interviewers that you are a very positive and proactive person.
    If you are good and crack the case, you get a job offer by email.
