Interview Details

It's pretty regular, no case interview, only fit questions. I get an phone interview, the interviewer I think just read the questions on her paper one by one. You just know your resume and follow the STAR to illustrate some basic question would be fine

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met recruiters at career fair and was called back for a first round interview after submitting a resume and cover letter. My first round interview was on campus and with a partner. We had a really good conversation - departed from typical interview Q's and focused on an area that I am interested in and how I think it will affect certain industries in the future. After the first round, I was invited for a "Super Day" in NYC. This round consisted of breakfast, three half hour behavioral interviews, and a presentation on the benefits offered at PwC. I was called the same day with a verbal job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    It was similar to the telephone interview and mainly competency based, they just wanted examples where you can refer back to consulting. They just want you to be able to tick all the boxes, so give as detailed of an answer as you can and be confident when doing so.

    Management Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    Application Details

    interviewed at PwC in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online - standard application form and a short text outlining your reasons for PwC and management consulting. Following the application form are the online tests, they are SHL so there is a lot of practice material online, and the benchmark is not as high as for example their Strategy practice (Strategy&). The phone interviewer was friendly and asked basic questions about my motivation and competencies - review the 10 PwC competencies and you'll be fine. Afterwards is the Assessment Centre, where you re-do the tests, do a group case and a written exercise. Make sure your answer for the written exercise is very structured and you work well in the group - the solution itself doesn't matter as much.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in June 2013.

    The interview is just based on competency questions.
    No questions about the CV have been asked. Most of the questions were based
    on situations where the candidate had to face difficult situations, take some responsabilities and communicate with seniors. They also asked me a question a recent business event on which I was interested.

    Interview Details

    Before the first round of interviews I had to do four computer based test on my own. One testing numerical skills, one verbal skills and two my personality and norms. You have to be really fast in order to complete the two skilled based tests one time, but do not worry to much about their importance. If you are running out of time, I thing juste reading the question fat and "guessing" is a better approach than not finnish.

    The interviews were based on the to non skilled based tests and really nothing to worry about!
