I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in April 2014.

Contacted via job ad on their website, received a call after a week for group exercises, did HR interview on the same day (approached me as i left the group exercise), first partner interview one week later and second partner interview the day after that - job offer within the week.

Interview Questions
  • Not difficult as such, but the people in the group exercise were all top notch and it was quite a good session - i felt. All in all they like seeing that you're confident and able to negotiate.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial Communication: I sent a message to one of the managers through Linkedin to get an Interview. He replied and suggested an interview with him and the general manager. I also made someone from PwC USA to send a good reference.

    First Interview: I talked to these 2 managers to see where I could fit best in the company and they decided that I should get a second interview with another Manager

    Second Interview: I talked to the operations Manager and it went really good, so he sent me to the psychological Test

    Third interview: An interview with the psychologist... No numerical test as I expected, just typical personality tests

    Very friendly interview and telephone interview. Filled out the form online and then completed a numeracy and verbal test online which were quite straightforward. Then a 30 minute phone interview which i passed. The next stage is the assessment center where you might be asked to complete the online tests again followed by a face to face partner interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    PwC has come to our campus for recruiting. The actually interview process was different from what was mentioned in the placement website. The first round was a GD round. Here, it is important that one participates and makes contribution in terms of a new perspective or elaborates/ analyses someone else's perspective. The next round was a telephonic interview. My experience of the telephonic interview was not very good. I almost understood the result after that round. To my surprise, the company waitlisted my application though.

    Interview Questions
    • Contray to what was expected (based on what other people had mentioned about their experience), there were a few actual technical questions based on programming languages and technology strategy for banking sector etc.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Manager interview, followed by Associate Director/ Executive Director, and then HR. It is better to have your CV forwarded through an internal reference.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate, but you should - there are salary disparities at the same experience and rank.
