Graduate Interview

Graduate

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Name two of our core values. One that you believe is a strength of yours, and another that you feel you may struggle with. Discuss your selection.   View Answer
