    Oracle Applications Functional Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of technical interview , followed by 1 round of technical interview from onsite. One test related to English Proficiency followed by top management interview

    People who took first two rounds were very professional and polite. Also HR and onsite technical round went well and they were very professional.

    Interview Questions
    • The first two rounds were typical technical rounds and then I had an onsite technical round... I cleared all the technical rounds. Then there was a test on english Proficiency which I was able to clear as well.

      Then I had a discussion with director who does not know how to behave with people. He believes that interview is a one way process and things people who have come for interview are his slaves. He asked me to stand up and explain ...this shows his level of maturity..very very cheap and unprofessional... says you have not done any certification atleast for 5 times. ... Finally I though enough is enough after all the humilation that I faced and I walked out of the interview mid way.

      This is the worst experience in my life.... very very unprofessional behavior.

       This was for PWC SDC Bangalore unit for oracle apps SCM functional consultant role

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview took place in a hotel in hyderabad.The arrangements were very good.Interview was scheduled by a consultancy.The entire process had three rounds 1.Telephonic 2.F2F 3.HR
    In telephonic round they asked basic questions about oracle apps,just to check the foundation.In F2F round they had many panels.Around 15-20 candidates were present.Each candidate spent around 30-40 mins with the interviewer. In my interview ,they started with basic questions like experience in module,O2C flow,Bulk collect,SQL loader,control file,formula colums,MOAC.Then scenario based questions were asked like on inbound and outbound interfces,savepoint,subqueries,autonomous transaction,Reports triggers.

    I answered almost all questions related to OM SCM but due to lack of experience in other modules like AR,GL,INV,PO etc couldnt meet requirement of job profile.They were looking for a guy with more than 4 years of experience and comprehensive knowledge about all modules.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were expected.Scenario questions were bit tricky but the interviewer gave sufficient time to analyse and answer.   Answer Question

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    This position was based at Gurgaon for Partner - Market and Industry Development. The process followed was - selection of CV from job portal and then face to face interview with HR people. The interview was very badly conducted. The interviewer only asked 2-3 questions about present job and salary.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions as there weren't any asked by the interviewer. He was keen on doing up with the candidates that they have called perhaps. Or may be they had someone selected already and the interview was a mere eyewash.   View Answer

    Senior Associate Interview

    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.
