Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

Interview

I made it to the second round after an on campus interview. For the second round, I was invited to do an office visit. I was extremely disappointed by the visit. I did not like the culture at all. My interviews were very strict interviews, no conversation at all.

    On-campus interview for the first round, no unexpected questions. All questions are about the projects and teamwork.

Another one was the manager of the Data Assurance group, he gave me a test about writing a query in SQL.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PwC in June 2012.

    Interview

    First step: Online tests
    > Basic SHL tests for numeracy, logic and reasoning. As well as a very long, dull personality test.
    Second step: Assessment centre
    > Confirmation tests, written assessment and group exercise.
    > Confirmation tests were the same as the online tests only written, numeracy pushed for time
    > Written assessment needed logical structure and approach
    > Group exercise was standard case study with a "change in circumstances" halfway through
