    Graduate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at PwC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very good experience. Very relaxed. Not nerve-racking at all. I walked in nervous but by the time my interview started I felt extremely confident and welcome. This helped me perform well in the interview because I was able to concentrate and think clearly.

    Staff were friendly and approachable which sold me on the culture. It is one thing to advertise a culture and set of values, but it is another to align actions with intentions. PwC seems to manage this well.
