    Management Consulting Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I interviewed for the intern position of management consulting. Applied in Jan 2017 and initially received a reject for the same. But in March end I received a mail from the same recruiter asking me to apply to 2 links she had mentioned in the email, one of them being the management consulting intern link. I had 4 interviews in total, 3 behavioural and 1 case interview. First 3 interviews went swiftly, but my last behavioural interview was with a lady who's a principal at PwC Boston office via Google Hangouts. She was absolutely disinterested in what I had to tell and was having her lunch while she was interviewing me. Also, she was late by 5 mins to join the Hangout Call. For every answer I had to her question, she kept making a face and had something to oppose it with. Basically, she broke down my confidence totally. If this is the way her interviewer would have treated her back in the days when was interviewing for PwC, I wonder how she would have reacted.

    Interview Questions

    • Hypothetical case study given, but for practice the case studies on their website can be referred to.
      For behavioural, a little resume walk thru, and tell me a time kind of questions from office and personal life.
