    Interview Details

    Application online for an internship.
    First contact per mail asking about interest in a internship position within the department (Mergers & Acquisitions).
    Then one hour phone interview.
    First part (about 30 min) consisted of typical interview questions (personal / cv) as well as a bit behavioral ones. The other half of the interview was about solving a case (M&A topic).

    Interview Questions
    • Name three (!) biggest challenges in your life.
      Giving case studies within a phone interview is quite unusual (therefore unexpected).

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

    Interview Details

    Very easy process, I was needed to stand in for another employee who was leaving. One partner was very easy going, the other was mostly silent throughout the interview. We later toured the office which led me to believe I would be accepted. I felt that there was some kind of problem at the company whilst touring the office.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing, was asked at the end about treatment of pensions as I had asked about my own salary but this was not difficult to answer as I had prepared for the interview by reading intensively.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was accepted on the same day of the interview as they desperately needed a replacement for an employee who was leaving.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Ich wollte nach meinem ersten Bachelor-Jahr ein Praktikum bei PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, Deutschland, absolvieren. Nachdem einer meiner Professoren meine Bewerbung an die Personalabteilung weitergeleitet hatte, erhielt ich ein E-Mail mit möglichen Terminen für ein erstes Telefoninterview.
    Das Telefoninterview fand mit dem Partner des Teams, bei dem ich mein Praktikum machen wollte, statt. Es betraf hauptsächlich Personal Fit und die Gründe, aus denen ich dieses Praktikum bei dieser Firma machen wollte. Beinahe keine fachlichen Fragen.
    Danach wurde ich in das Frankfurter Büro eingeladen und absolvierte ein zweites Interview mit dem Partner und einem Manager seiner Gruppe. Sie stellen vor allem fachliche Fragen, ich konnte sie jedoch nach meinem ersten Studienjahr an der Universität beantworten, d.h. dass sie meiner tatsächlichen Meinung nach ziemlich einfach waren.
    Zwei Tage nach dem Interview erhielt ich einen Telefonanruf und ein Angebot für ein Praktikum bei PwC. Sie waren ziemlich flexibel in Bezug auf Beginn- und Enddatum und auch die Gesamtdauer.

    I wanted to do an intern at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, Germany after my first Bachelor year. After one of my professors forwarded my application to the HR department I received an email concerning possible dates for an first telephone interview.

    The telephone interview was with the Partner of the team I wanted to do my intern. It was more about the personal fit and why I wanted to do this intern in this firm. Nearly no techniqual questions.

    Afterwards I was invited to the Frankfurt office and had a second interview with the partner and a Manager from his group. They questioned primarily techniqual questions, however I was able to answer them after my first year of university so from my actual point of view it was pretty basic.

    Two days after he interview I got a phone call and an offer for an internship within PwC. They were pretty flexible concerning beginning and end as well about the overall length.
