    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    In the campus hiring there was 1st a CV short listing from a pool of applicants, followed by a aptitude test containing - english, reasoning and maths ques. After this round there were two rounds of interviews - techinical (taken by a principal consultant - in my case it was telephonic) and HR (the person visiting the campus)

    Interview Questions
    • my interview was in 2007 as I completed my engineering. As far as I remember I was asked a business case question about a bank which wants to setup its services in a new city and various questions around it. e.g. what aspects would you consider? 3Cs etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As this was a campus selection, there was little to no scope for negotiating. Moreover, the detailed salary structure and other bits and pieces were known late after a final offer which arrived much later (3-4 months) just before the induction start date.
