    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    It was an all behaviour questions based interview. You have to think about what challenges you confronted with in the past, and how you dealt with them eventually. There weren't much time for you to think about it. Remember to give specific, positive and real examples and use the "STAR" model. ]

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    The process was in three stages; first round was with someone in upper management. Then you come in for the second round of interviews, where you meet with three different people (2 HR managers and 1 IT skills manager from what I recall). They then test your mathematics and reading comprehension skills. Once you pass those interviews, you meet with the "team" as they call it (the team is whom you will be working with, and they do what is called a "peer review"), then meet with the director of the Delivery Center.
