    Application Details

    interviewed at PwC in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Horrible Experience. Stay away from interviews of such companies. They will call you , shortlist you for 2nd round and tell that they will call next week. They will not call you back and suddenly revert saying the position is closed.Better utilize the precious time in some other important work.
    They clearly said congrats you are shortlisted for 2nd round and it will happen next week.
    How can they back out after shortlisting you?
    Think 100 times before joining this unprofessional company.

    Interview Details

    I got call from placement agency that if you are ready then on saturday you can go for the f2f interview. I went from hyderabad to banglore and reached 10 min late.
    After waiting for 3 hours they called me for first round which was technical mostly java and OIM and ended in 1 hours.
    They asked me to wait. Then after 10 min they called me for 2nd round which was mostly focused on my projects i worked.It last for 50 min.after 10 min they again called me for manager round and one manager was there in interview panel he was very friendly and mostly asked the requirment gathering,project implementation,design document etc. It last for 35 min. The HR has came and she took the personal info and asked for the salary . She also asked is it negotiable i told yes.Then she told me they will revert back through call or email, But it has been around 1 and half month but didn't got any response from them.When i called to placement agency which offered me this interview they told that PWC put my offer on hold. Don't know whats the reason but its really awkward that you take interview for whole day and one who clear all round you never replied to him.

    It was a ridiculous process. Absolutely horrible. At the same time, it was an amazing experience. You have to say that they have very good interview process system. Also, i don't remember anything of that. I do not know what all things were useful or not. I don't remember who took the interview.

    I had cleared all rounds of interview but they rejected me just because it was my 4th change in 4 yrs ,
    i gave the genuine reasons but the HR remained unsatisfied ,

    What PWC is going to achieve by rejecting a candidate who has cleared all rounds of Interview and just he/she doesnt fit in PWC just becasue they have changed too many companies?
    there can many reason why they have changed the comapanies, please consider the candidates who can justify this with genuine reasons!

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with an aptitude test followed by personal interview rounds- Technical and Partner round.
    Interviewers make you feel totally relaxed by asking you basic questions, before they start the actual interview. The partner round was a great experience, just a regular conversation on a range of topics, there are no 'right' answers, just your overall personality and if you fit in their scheme of things.
    Interview invite at very short notice, less than 24 hours.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is extremely slow and unorganized.I was called at Pwc Gurgoan office for F2F for the first round,i reached on time and there interview was done on phone (i can't understand why they call me if they have to do with phone :) ).Well , question asked was good and tricky.After one month they declared me pass in first round and said second round will be scheduled soon.I see on their candidate portal my status.But i did not get any call until one month.I cleared 1st round on 28 feb 2014 and get call on 28th march for second round but second round was scheduled on 25th april 2014 (more than 2.5 month passed since 1st round).
    Second round was again telephonic, the question asked was very tough , and tricky.Much knowledgeable person was asking the question and i am able to answer 70-75% questions.The interviewer was satisfied with my answers.
    Within 2 day i got a call that i am selected for VC round with Partner/Director.
    VC round was scheduled at 8:30 am , very formal question were asked, may be my second round was good enough that's why this was only formal.question like why you want to change job etc.
    At noon, same day the called me and asked to submit documents and informed me that i had cleared VC round.
    After 3-4 days they call me and ask for CTC negotiations and told me the position will be of retainer profile (all process was done for permanent position), i said ok.
    On candidate portal , i saw my status as "offer Approved".
    But after 2-3 day i got a call again fro pwc gurgoan , for interview. The question was very non-reasonable.
    no response for next 1 week , i send mails to the HR. Then again they schedule interview (Telephonic). This time it is from PWC banglore. Simple question were asked by three persons, i answered almost correctly to all.
    Again no response for 1 week, then i send mail to HR, she told me that they drop that position as there is no project :)
    So they took more than 3 months for all these drama !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now on candidate portal , my status is set as "Candidate not interested" ....
