    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at PwC (Sydney) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Participated in Tech Academy and then being invited to an interview by one of the Partner I met. It was the final interview with two managers. Most of the questions are behaviour questions, and there was a case study to show your analytical skills. Generally not very hard and I think they recruit a lot of graduates each year.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC (Perth, Western Australia).

    Interview

    The interview process was very positive. The interviewers were very understanding of the challenges the interviewee faces in these situations. I recommend doing practice questions online and researching the PwC interview processes to help prepare for it.

    Interview Questions

    • The short case study was unexpected, as I was advised by Human Capital/Recruitment that there would be no case study. However, the exercise was fairly straightforward.   Answer Question

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC (Melbourne) in May 2014.

    Interview

    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

    Skype interview first followed by face to face. Very unprofessional staff doing face to face interview. I knew more about the project than they did. Didn't get the role as they "age discriminated". Shame on you PWC.
