Consultant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Beirut (Lebanon)) in April 2017.

Interview

Everything started out smoothly. A few days after applying I was given a few online tests to complete. These were the typical logical reasoning tests most large companies use today. After completing them successfully I was invited to an HR phone interview which lasted about 15-20 minutes. The questions asked here ranged from "How do you qualify?" to strengths and weaknesses to "why PwC?". The next step was the assessment centre which they held a few weeks later on campus. It's split into two parts: a writing assessment to see how proficient you are at reading and understanding text before writing a report about it and a group exercise where you discuss a sample case study with a few other candidates. After completing it we were told that a reply would be sent (A yes or a no) by the end of the next week. That's where things got mixed up. Almost a month passed without receiving any news from them. A few of the other candidates had received yes's and no's by that time so I decided to email the recruiters to ask if anything was wrong. Still two weeks later and there was no reply. A friend of mine who had the same happen to him did receive a reply which was "we lost your application. Would you like to apply again?" Overall everything went well up until they lost my application.

    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.
