    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barcelona (Spain)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (Barcelona (Spain)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round of IQ tests and English tests online. Then you do a group interview and you have to present yourself, what are you doing, why PwC and the position you are applying. Then a group exercise in which you have to discuss a topis that they choose. Then I did a HR interview about my skills and education.

    They never contacted me again, I called several times and they only said that the HR person who conducted the interview left the company after I was interviewed and that they didn't know anything about my candidacy, even if it was something good or bad.. If they treat candidates like that, I dont' want to imagine how they treat employees.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (Kolkata (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was aptitude test consisting of quant,LR and verbal.The questions were not very difficult. Much lower than CAT level.There were 40 mcq questions each containing 1 marks.The time given was of 40 minutes. There was no negative marking. About 200 applied ,70 people got through this round..The next round was a technical round where the interviewer asked me about my summer project. My role in it. Fortunately, I did my project in networking,he seemed pretty impressed by it.Then he asked me about leadership skills. Any new software which I learned by my own that is not written on the CV. After this , 26 got to the final round . Some of us were sent to a final face to face with the HR and others had their telephonic interview as their final selection round.It was entirely upon them who would go to telephone and who to F2F. I had telephonic round as my last round. The HR asked some basic questions.I explained myself clearly and loudly as the telephone network was very poor. I kept my fingers crossed after this round as I was not sure whether he was able to get my point clearly or not. But when the results were out at midnight 12.15 am(the process took the entire day) I was delighted.
