Application

I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

Interview

They found my resume online. There was a phone interview, then an online skills test, then I was called for an in person interview. All of these went well. I thought the in person interview was very professional and the 2 ladies interviewing me were very nice. I was surprised that I didn't hear anything after that for 6 weeks! Long after I had accepted another position.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I joined the Firm years ago, prior to the merger of PriceWaterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand. The hiring and interview process at both firms was fair and realistic, and I actually received offers from both of those earlier Firms. I could not realistically comment on the hiring and interview process for the current combined Firm.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall anything either difficult or unexpected at either PriceWaterhouse or Coopers & Lybrand, and again could not comment now on what is expected or asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I received what I asked for, so it was straightforward.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC (Hartford, CT) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I spoke applied to this job via there website. Recruiter called me and basically just asked salary expectation,, very very general of what I have done previously, why I left last company etc...
    Got face to face interview call back same day. Interview was with 2 people. Very friendly folks, the office is nice but a bit sterile. Very quiet. This is a financial firm so you have to expect that I suppose.
    Typical inerview , what I've done, why I left, what do I know about them, etc...
    Should know that there admins work all together and there is one person in charge of them who will distribute the work. No one person works just for one person except for the Executive assistants.

    Met with 2 people while I was there and was suppose to get call back if I made the cuts to meet with person I would have worked with but did'nt happen. Good luck to you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    This position was based at Gurgaon for Partner - Market and Industry Development. The process followed was - selection of CV from job portal and then face to face interview with HR people. The interview was very badly conducted. The interviewer only asked 2-3 questions about present job and salary.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions as there weren't any asked by the interviewer. He was keen on doing up with the candidates that they have called perhaps. Or may be they had someone selected already and the interview was a mere eyewash.   1 Answer
