    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Birmingham, England (UK)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and was interviewed to an assessment center. Performed numerical and logical tests followed by a group discussion based on a case study. There were very few positions so any mistake meant we would not go through to the final round. Overall time was a huge constraint for the tests so ensure to work quickly and don't panic during the group stage and try cooperate with team members during the group task which will set a better tone for the recruiters.
