Madrid (Spain)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in September 2009.

Interview Details – I started in the firm in the audit group. The interview process
- consisted of a general entry exam (accounting and business focused) after which I was called for a group interview, where you had to demonstrate team working skills with a group of 5-10 people and finally present your results (from the team building exercise) individually to 2 people from HR and 1 partner from audit
- After passing the 2nd round I went into 2 interviews with partners, which were mainly personal based and going thrhough my CV. No technical questions, which were done in the previous rounds

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation. Was given a salary and a position and offered to take or decline.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process was relaxed. Consisted of initial recruiter interview, a skills interview and ultimately a partner interview. Overall relaxed conversations during each interview resulting on a more conversational tone.

Interview Question – Background questions, why consulting, skills questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, best offer presented first time. Do leverage other offers in the earlier discussion when you begin talking about "ideal" compensation, etc. Be realistic with your expectation.

Advisory Manager Interview

Advisory Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in December 2010.

Interview Details – Submitted resume, recruiter contacted me, asked a few basic questions, set up phone interview with partner. Interviewed with partner on phone, then flew to Chicago to interview with 2 partners, a senior manager/director, and a manager. Made offer a few days later. Overall, people seemed great to work with. Great company culture with lots of team building activities. But one of the partners seemed like a micro manager.

Interview Question – Give me an example of a time you came up with a creative solution.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Company focused on hub location and my current city was not a hub location
