    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC (Sydney) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Online application, testing, video interview. Followed by assessment centre. AC was four hours long. Began with a group task for an hour, this is to see how you work with others to come up with a solution. 20 minutes to read 16 pages document plus a unique brief and answer questions before deliberation. Make sure you come up with original and valid suggestions but don't cut out people. Afterwards had an interview for 30 minutes. Then a networking and business game scenario which apparently wasn't assessed, but they could have assessed.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR - they asked me standard questions like why PwC and what technical skills I have

    First round interview with Director/Manager - standard behavioural questions - really allowed me to ask a lot of questions

    Second round interview with Senior Manager/Manager - a little bit harder but similar to first round interview

    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.

    Interview

    Straightforward. Questions you would expect at a big four interview. Only thing to look out for would be case studies, which can nab people. You can find very similar practice case studies online.

    Interview went well with general questions around my experience. I was confident of securing the role but I was never contacted with an outcome of the interview.

    I find this very unprofessional.

    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
