    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person for this position by leaving a copy of my CV and cover letter with the receptionist. I received a call the next day, inviting me for an aptitude test. I opted to go in the next day for the test, and I believe the next phone call inviting me for an interview the following day meant I passed the test.

    Interview went very well. Was not too rigorous as compared to what I was expecting. Everybody was very nice. From partner to the tea lady.

    Tax Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at PwC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I wanted to do an intern at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, Germany after my first Bachelor year. After one of my professors forwarded my application to the HR department I received an email concerning possible dates for an first telephone interview.

    The telephone interview was with the Partner of the team I wanted to do my intern. It was more about the personal fit and why I wanted to do this intern in this firm. Nearly no techniqual questions.

    Afterwards I was invited to the Frankfurt office and had a second interview with the partner and a Manager from his group. They questioned primarily techniqual questions, however I was able to answer them after my first year of university so from my actual point of view it was pretty basic.

    Two days after he interview I got a phone call and an offer for an internship within PwC. They were pretty flexible concerning beginning and end as well about the overall length.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PwC in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was telephone interview, communicated through my university , it was 1 1:1 interview. It was not with an HR, but with a senior manager from the team, who asked direct question related skills required. The manager was extremely nice and comforting. The interview was more like a chat rather an interview.
