Interview Details

Very relaxed interviews in my experience. The firm wants to get a handle on your personality and whether you'll fit in. They seem to let your grades and involvement speak for themselves (based on a campus interview). Make sure you are well rounded with extracurriculars as the firm seems to like seeing that you can multitask which is very important on the job.

Interview Questions
  • Explain a situation where you had to deal with adversity and how you accomplished what you set out to do. Also, when working on a team, how did you deal with a team member who was unresponsive/poor/etc?   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Little room for negotiation as a campus hire.

    The first thing to do is an internet test for English and logics, the it goes to interview. We call it group assessment. A lot of people are divided in groups to do discussion. After this, a face to face interview with manager is required. If you pass,you will meet partner. The partner will make the final decision.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at PwC in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and Interview Process includes a detailed analysis of your CV, followed by some skill evaluating written tests (not difficult) and group tests (some kind of simple case study or dilemma).
    After that there is a quick interview with senior management.
    The last step is an interview with a partner which is all but technical. It is a kind of stress test and they ask you questions that make you unease to see what your reaction is (in none of the questions the line is crossed - at all!)

    Interview Questions
    • The last interview is a bit tricky as your stress skills will be tested.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. They have standard salaries for standard job positions.
