The interview process was fast as it was close to the end of recruitment period. I did not have the chance for a 1:1 interview because of the time issue.

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for a group interview. At this stage we had some team excerises and some debate. After this stage we were tested on different skills, such as English, economics and thinking outside the box. There were a lot of situations given and each one had a set of questions, usually with double or triple negations, aimed to see how well you understood the issues. After this, was called in again for an interview face to face with a hiring manager.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at PwC in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was very unfriendly. They did not try to make me feel comfortable and just asked questions off a sheet. They were writing my answers down which made it very awkward and the interview did not flow.

    Reasons for Declining

    I wanted a summer internship, but they offered me a winter internship. I did not want to push my graduation date back so I declined.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got in contact with a recruiter. We did a preliminary interview before I interviewed with a partner. Then on the Super Day I interviewed with several partners. The whole interview process was long but very easy going in the beginning. Towards the end the interviews got to be a little more nerve racking.

    • "Tell me a situation in which you had to..." Scenario questions are the most difficult.   Answer Question

    The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round on campus, and second round in the office. First round was very comfortable. Consisted of 45-50 min resume based behavioral interview. Second round was three one on one behavioral based interviews with directors/partners of the firm. Mostly behavioral, a few easy/minor technical questions. Got a call from the director about the offer 3 hours after the interview process. Great experience!

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview then 3 1 on1 interviews. Staff was pretty friendly and made you feel welcome. Do not get discouraged if you don't get it because internship is generally harder to obtain than a full time position.
