    Interview Questions
    • All of it was behavioral. The part that tripped up most people was the meal. People didn't realize that was still part of the interview and they should behave. People would go crazy ordering a bunch of food cuz PWC was paying or they would lack all table manners.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at PwC in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met with recruiters throughout college and finally had an interview my first semester senior year. The first interview was very standard questions. Questions included group projects, leadership roles, and extracurricular activities. For the second round office interviews, it was more of a "getting to know you" interview. The interviewees wanted to know more about me as a person and why I wanted to work at PWC and not another Big Four Firm.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PwC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    PwC were very professional from the beginning of the process, and soon booked me in for an interview after the psychometric tests online. On the day, there was the primary interview with an HR representative and a director followed by an office tour and a more informal chat with a PwC partner. The firm took less than a week to offer me a place in their internship programme which was great considering other offers were on the table.
