    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    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.

    • 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 Details

    Followed the instructions on the website. Fairly straight forward and you are required to complete verbal and numerical reasoning tests.

    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Vacation Work Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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...
