    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Followed the instructions on the website. Fairly straight forward and you are required to complete verbal and numerical reasoning tests. I would recommend that you prepare well for these are you are racing with time. Then if you get through, you have to go through phone screening and assessment centre

    Interview Details

    I had a very structured telephone interview. Most of the questions can be found online and have beed prepared beforehand. The telephone interview lasted only 20 minutes. And the HR mentioned my signal's not good. I thought I did poorly but I still passed this stage. So never give up no matter what happens.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected question. The difficulty of interview can be depending on the interviewer due to their personalities(my opinion), thus you need to be aware that they can be nice or very rude. Also you need to try to understand what the interviewer wants to hear 'exactly' as their questions can sometimes be unclear and vague then do not assume and ask them again.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Need very good grades to get interview, but once you've gotten that far it's all about your personality! They look for at least B+ average and A average in core accounting courses. Once they have narrowed it down to the high performers in school, everyone is on a level playing field meaning it is all about who you are as a person.

    Interview Questions
    • It was just conversational for me, no tough questions. They just want to know you are someone they want to work with.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation was not an option.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with a 30 minute phone conversation with a recruiter. I then interviewed in person. I met with 4 different people over the course of four hours. It was very casual and more of a discussion. There were some typical interview questions (strengths and weaknesses) but really it was just a conversation to see if I would be a fit with their culture.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected thing was a lack of a question. There was no case study (at least for undergraduates). Unlike other consulting firms, there was no case study, which made the interview process easy but was definitely unexpected.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Plan to have at least three interviews with managers/partners. Relaxed interview process focusing more on interpersonal interactions rather than technical skills. The interview flows like a conversation with no/limited technical questions. Things to talk about are life experiences, educational backgroud, hobbies, community involvement, etc. Each interview goes for about thirty minutes.
