    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I found the posting on LinkedIn, and when I applied it redirected me to their Career Website. I received a request for a phone interview 3 weeks after, I had the call with a Talent Acquisition Manager.

    I enjoyed the discussion with her and answered to all the questions. I can't say that it was easy or hard, but it was fair with direct questions concerning my previous relevant experiences, and how I differ from the people out there in the market.

    I received an e-mail a week after telling me that I was not considered for the role without any feedback (even a basic one). I don't really understand why as I believe I have all the skills they need, but it is what it is sometimes.

    Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to the position online and recruiter got in touch through email to set up interview a week later. Only made it to the first round of phone interview. 45 minutes felt a little bit long and majority of it involved interviewer asking behavioral questions...at the end I was somewhat exhausted and my voice started cracking up. Never heard back from them. So I am assuming I did not make it to the next round.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    THis was an application form, 2 phone interviews, an face to face interview and computer testing. This took a long time but I think that depends on who is in charge of recruitment for the job as the process doesn't seem as long for some jobs as for others.

    Management Consulting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email by the recruiter or HR representative and she gave me options for interviewing time. I found out the day of the interview that the recruiter/HR rep forgot to inform me with the change of time/date. I was a bit frustrated because I sat there waiting for 10 minutes and then had to call to ask about my interview, then they realized they made a mistake.

    The first round interview was all behavioural over the phone. The interviewer did not seem to know a lot about the recruitment process and rather he was asked to interview. He probed a lot into "Tell me about yourself". He basically took one information I said and probed about it for like 20 minutes.

    Since he did not know the process, I emailed the HR rep/recruiter and she never emailed me back. I followed up and no reply. 2 weeks after, I get this automated email saying they decided not to proceed with my application.

    I found the whole process upsetting given that I did do a first round interview and they did not have the decency to give me a phone call.

    I really liked the structure of the program but having gone through their interview stream, I don't think I would have advised my friends to apply.
