    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PwC (Paris (France)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online application and got a phone call the next day. Invited to do an online verbal+numerical+logic test. Easier than investment banking ones. HR interview afterwards, mostly behavioral and motivation. A week after invited to an interview with a partner. Description of missions and required skills in accounting. more like a discussion than a torturing interrogation. It was a pleasant interview experience.
