    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After the SHL numerical tests I got called it for the assessment centre. This lasted 4 hours and consisted of a written assignment in which we had to write a report on which of the three strategic options a pwc client should take. Then we had a group exercise (6 people) and each had a booklet and also an individual piece of paper which contained different pieces of information for each candidate. This lasted 30 minutes and in the last 10 min we were given a paper saying that climate change has led to some consequences which led us to rethink our option. The case study was about tea,coffee and cocoa and you had to decide on which country to pick out of the 6. Finally, I completed a numerical test (20 questions 20 minutes) and a diagrammatic test (40 questions 20 minutes) on paper.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PwC (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an external agency and asked to complete some online tests, numerical, verbal and accuracy. The numerical test was extremely difficult and actually completely irrelevant as the role has no mathematical element to it! I was then rejected after not performing well in the numerical test.

    Very odd equal opportunities questions also that were very unncessessary. For example, whether my parents went to university, whether my parents were professionals, whether i went to private school, did I receive any free school meals? Ridiculous.
