    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC in January 2008.

    Interview

    As an experienced candidate being interviewed for a lateral posting after completing my MBA, the interview consisted initially of a 1:1 interview, Group interview and a phone interview in that order. The 1:1 consisted of general questions on background, previous job etc to gauge the fit of the candidate for the job. The group interview consisted of a case study (mine was on an auto giant and the problems they may hypothetically face). The last round of interview was with the partner over the phone.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC in January 2009.

    Interview

    They actually are interested in your extra-curricular activities...sporting etc. Recruitment based on qualifications, grades and experience. I believe my previous relevant work experience (which other candidates did not have) put me ahead. HR was useful in giving hints on how to prepare for panel interview. Was impressed with HR.
