    Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Only one interview after series of online tests. Partner & manager. Very friendly environment. Nothing to worry about really. Did group case study activity first, then separated into three streams: office tour, grad panel and interview.

    Vacation Work Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, did the testing, a video interview then attended the Assessment Center/Partner Interview. The assessment center was pretty laid back with a case study (group activity and individual email activity). I felt like the interviewers didn't value honesty and they weren't super friendly. Was asked why PwC about 4 times during the process...

    Interview Questions
    • Used a case study about a Frozen Yogurt company and had to talk about opportunities and risks. It was a group activity, what you said had value but it was the group work they were largely looking at.   Answer Question

    Intern Advisory Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Application process submitted online. Some simple questions about why you're applying to the particular department, what you offer and so on. This followed by online taleo testing, which if you progress is followed by recorded interview. This basically just asks some questions about PWC which you record answers to.

    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I found all well and easy until the partner interview. All though the partner interview seemed very relaxed and I felt I nailed it they said I didn't really sell myself enough. I feel really stupid when I do it but I guess it needs to be done. Other than that everything was great and everybody is really friendly. The pool of candidates is always strong so I guess you need to be very upfront.

    Interview Questions
    • I got asked about my internship. To be honest I felt I oversold it but they thought I went way under. If you have any experience make it sound like you saved the company from bankruptcy and everything you learned will help you at PWC.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at PwC in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a position under their graduate recruitment program (Sydney). Online application form starts off the recruitment process, followed by an invitation to an invite-only pre-interview networking event. A phone interview follows that, the one I received was conducting by a HR person who asked questions relevant to the position but seemed unqualified to have a intelligent discussion. An example was when the HR person asked for my opinions on a recent business/financial news event. She was unfamiliar with the topic herself and was frantically trying to scribble notes down instead of engaging in a two-way conversation. Finally, the HR person admitted that she was mainly trying to decide what role would suit me rather than respecting my ability to decide if I had the skills and qualifications to be competent in a role. The company took 2 weeks to get back with rejection email, offering to provide feedback via a telephone callback. After scheduling a time with their automated system, I was surprised that the call never came at all. Very unprofessional conduct for a prestigious firm.
