    Technology Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Delhi (India)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PwC (New Delhi (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Overall process- Written test (Quant, LR, Verbal), Technical Interview (Face to Face), Strategy Interview (Telephonic).

    Test: 40 questions in 60 minutes. Verbal section was pretty challenging, quantitative aptitude was moderately difficult. Logical Ability was something which could be pulled out. Advice would be not spending too much time on any question, just do as many as you can, then pay attention to the leftovers. No negative marking.

    Technical Interview: Though named technical, this was purely CV based, and a mix of HR interview as well. The interviewer asked about myself, and grilled my resume, asking everything. As I was telling about various areas, he went deeper into many, checking my nervousness in cross questioning and whether I have actually done that activity or not. Advice would be to prepare your résumé very well, and have crisp answers ready to the common HR questions. Be very fluent in English, as fumbling and thinking would give a bad impression.

    Strategy Interview: About 20/170+ made it to this round, in which a partner at PwC took our interview on call, the duration being 10-15 mins at max. This was also more or less a HR interview, with the candidates being checked on their voice modulation on call, convincing ability, English proficiency, and situation handling. The interviewer will nervous you on call while asking questions from your résumé, which you'll have to tackle. He will also lead the conversation to an absurd issue, to see how well u cope up. Advice would be to be respectful, keep your throat clear, never cut the other person, present criticism with appreciation.

    A combination of both the interviews will determine your success rate. Don't take telephonic interview lightly, it can be against you if you don't go well with it.
