    Manager - Advisory Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC in April 2017.

    Interview

    Zwei sehr angenehme Gespräche mit Führungskräften (Senior Manager) an unterschiedlichen Standorten und ein abschließendes Telefonat mit einem Partner.
    Es gab letztlich keine Einigung beim Gehalt, da meine (branchenübliche!) Forderung als deutlich zu hoch abgelehnt wurde. Somit ist es nicht zu einem konkreten Vertragsangebot gekommen.

    Manager - Advisory Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone screen - general overview of my CV, talking about my background and what I want to do next. It was very basic. They told me what the next steps would be for the face-to-face interviews.

    I have yet to hear of when these will be scheduled for. I am not sure where the delay is really in this process. I am not sure if the recruiting team is simply understaffed or if the hiring managers within the department are not responsive. It has been almost two months of odd updates telling me that they do want to proceed but no dates as of yet.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Mostly conversational. No cases. They focused on fit and understanding previous experience and relevance. Interviewed with partners and directors. Not the worst process I have seen except that they asked me for referral letters at the end of the process and I did not have anyone lined up although I thought everything had been completed by then. There is a wide variety of partners in that office so your experience will be different depending on who you interview with. The office is becoming more mature so the process changes every year and your experience may be different then most people who have applied so far.

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A well Organized interview process to start with, but fizzled towards the end.
    I applied through a recruiter and was calling in for a round 1 face to face interview with a Director which went well. General CV based and competency based interview.
    Was informed of the decision to progress to second round in a couple of weeks, which would be with a partner and a senior manager and would be a case study.
    This went well and I was fairly confident of receiving an offer.

    It's been more than 2 months now and despite several follow ups, the firm still hasn't been able to make a decision on whether they want to progress ahead or not.

    Advisory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process felt more like a conversation than anything else, with the partner at times even being apologetic that he has to tick off some questions that HR had prepared for him. The interview was relatively short - we had an hour booked for it but took around 25 minutes - however, this was possibly a deliberate tactic as we continued conversing for another 15 minutes. I did feel it lacked some intellectual rigour.
