I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2013.

Interview Details – 1st round was Telephonic . As I am into SAP , questions were asked on both technical and functional, also from projects I worked. It was for 35-40 minutes by a Principal Consultant..2nd round was Managerial round . It was F2F at Bangalore taken by the Director and Partner. Few managerial questions like leadership,motivation were asked. Why PwC?
What U know about PwC? Favorite MBA Subject--Few questions on that..Final HR round was telephonic. They asked only about salary expectations,reason 4 change, how soon I can join,etc....My hobbies, engineering rank, significant achievement..etc..Overall it was very good...Interviewers were very friendly, cordial, didn't put into pressure or stress...very much professional..

Negotiation Details – I told Best in Industry and got 70% hike from my previous company. PwC offers more than industry standard for talented guys...

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – There would be at-least 3 rounds of interviews. First one would be with someone in your function or could be from HR. Second round is usually a case round and is taken by someone senior such as an associate director or a partner depending upon the need. Firm tries to communicate fairly regarding the process.

Interview Question – Most difficult part would be technical stuff related with the work that is expected from you or if you are doing the same in your current job. This is basically asked during second or third round. Also it can be during case interview regarding handling difficult client situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation is usually done about base location, salary, % variable component. Although in my case there was a limited possibility of negotiation as the offer was universal in nature.

Technical Lead Interview

Technical Lead
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.

Interview Details – I had received call from consultant. Interview scheduled on weekday. Interview was simple. All in java. I could say that interviewer was confused guy! Its one hour and he is done with all theoretical collage level questions. I was sent back saying "we will get back to you". When i came out i decided i want to know what do they mean by "we will get back to you". So i called up HR again. & clarified. Now they had a new reason. we are looking for candidate with webservices experience. Now why did you short list me & take interview for one hour? So please decide on what skills you are looking and schedule interviews.

Interview Question – None were difficult   Answer Question
