    The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in March 2012.

    Interview

    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!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was phone screened by PWC for the summer intern position. Spent a while researching PWC and talking to my career center on campus to prep for the interview. They were looking for a candidate with more applicable skills than a liberal arts degree, but very helpful in directing me in steps to further my career.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC (Wrocław (Poland)) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Firstly, there was an online test which was repeated in the office. Then English test, which was basically about understanding business texts and an ability to shorten them in other words and find the essence of the given texts. Then an assessment center, which consists of group task (how to invest an additional profit gained?), interview with one oft he managers and presentation in front of the manager with additional questions ( about pharmaceutical branch).

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was recruited through an inhouse day organised by my study association. Afther this inhouse day, I had one other for only a few selected people. I decided to apply for an internship which allowed me to write my thesis and follow some projects on the side. The contact with the PwC employees was very fast and friendly. After taking some intelligence tests and personality tests, the first interview with a manager and a senior manager was scheduled. This is the most important round, and if this round is passed, high chances you will get an offer in the final round after.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online and did some personality and numerical tests. Got through to second round of phone interview. Interviewer asked questions very specific to the competencies listed on the website, e.g. leadership, team working skills, conflicts. Almost like checking off a list of them. Also asked about current affairs which you think may affect the industry you're applying for that expect a more in depth discussion. Lasted close to an hour, friendly overall.
