Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.
Interview Details – There were two part of interviews -- on campus interview and on site interview. and before interview there was a pre-interview dinner to meet the staffs. The recruiters are really nice so you don't need to get too nervous. in the dinner and interviews you would get a lot of chance to ask them anything you want to know about the company. Don't wast your chance, prepare well and ask as many questions as you can and want.
Interview Question – In the interview I mentioned a project I've done and then the interviewer was interested in it and asked the detail. So to impress the interviewer, I suggest to prepare well for all the details of each project you did and don't mention anything you are not well prepared of. Answer Question

Interview Details – The hiring process consists of 3 steps:
As a first step of application, you have to fill in an online questionnaire including 9-10 (more like personal) questions, such as: what is your greatest achievement so far? what do you do in your free time? What motivates you?...etc.
If it is ended up in a successful evaluation, you are invited to a one hour one-to-one HR interview, where you walk through on your CV and additional general questions may be arisen, too. It is a good point and 'required' to ask questions regarding the position you have applied.
As a next step, you get an Assessment Center invitation, which involves the followings: 3 tests (English test, Verbal and Numerical tests), one-to-one inetrviews with a Manager and a Partner (one in Hungarian, the other in English), situation practice with HR colleagues and a team situation with other candidates. Those candidates, who are successfully completed the above described 3 steps, get an offer :)
Personal recommendations during the interviews: Be honest, and be yourself! Not afraid of asking questions, you are interested in. They appreciate it.
