    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very rigorous interview, you would think I was interviewing for an Executive level. All behavioral questions (15), I believe they wanted me to fail, however, I answered all to the best of my ability. I sensed from the start of the interview, they had already selected the candidate and this interview was a formality.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (Uxbridge, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Did the Talent Academy which had an assessment centre and telephone interview.

    Fast tracked - had a partner interview in the office

    Interview for telephone was purely competency which was easy

    Face to face interview however was meant to be half/half - the man I interviewed with seemed rather disinterested and scary - really dug into any answers given competency or technical based

    Assistant Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Copenhagen (Denmark)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PwC (Copenhagen (Denmark)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was called in for an interview the next morning. I had a positive first-hand experience of the physical office environment and how well-dressed the employees were.
    The first part of the interview consisted of two senior analysts talking about PwC, how their corporate finance team functioned and why PwC Corporate Finance are the best. The second part of the interview consisted of the said two senior analysts asking out-of-line questions under the guise of wanting to learn "how I think". These questions ranged from accusing me of lying about everything from my grades to why I want to work at PwC. On top of all this, they even accused me of being desperate for a job (said the same people who called me in to interview a day after I applied).
    Overall, I had a very, very negative experience. If you're a self-respecting student with options, the Copenhagen office of PwC Corporate Finance should be beneath you. I do not regret withdrawing my candidacy shortly after the first interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: How would you sell some imaginary company?
      Q: Did you apply for this position because you were desperate for work?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PwC (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through my campus career site. I went to a meet and greet where none of the employers seems interested to be there. Very bad vibe. My interview was with a partner who had been there for 27 years and seemed to write me off the second he saw me. Horrible experience.
