Interview

I did the summer leadership program, and put data assurance as my preference. They called me about a month later confirming my interest. Then they called me to schedule an interview. I had interviews with two partners and they gave me an offer the next day. The interview was about 3 hours long, including a lunch with associates.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Same process as for all other candidates, nothing specific until the last interview stage which was quite casual and relaxed to make you feel comfortable. Usual telephone interview, then assessment center process. Normally the same scenario based question is used for each intake year and selection process. Tests were taken online and then again in house to ensure a fair selection process.

    Interview Questions

    • Usual competency questions and a few basic data questions around excel.   2 Answers

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    It was quite understandable, and interview listens to you very carefully without interrupting. However, what I have heard from many of my friends was that they were interrupted several times to be asked follow up questions. Apart from that, I do advise to have headphone with you if your phone does not sound properly, as it is very important to hear question word by word, so you can prepare your answers appropriately.

    • Why PwC, Why Data Assurance, Recent news about technology.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Birmingham, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Firstly, I sent off the online application form and a review of all of my academic details, then I was invited to sit online tests, and after passing these, a telephone interview - I am awaiting feedback to proceed to assessment centre, hopefully I will succeed and proceed to the next step of the application process as the interview went relatively well.

    Interview Questions

    • A time I was given very little guidance, a time I actively sought feedback, why did I want the job, what did I think I would be doing on the job, what research have I done into PwC and the role, asked a lot of questions about recent events in the news   Answer Question
