Interview

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.

    interviewed at PwC (Mumbai) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It is a fair process, everybody is given a fair chance to present their talents. PwC has a great way of taking interviews. The interviewee will always be made comfortable, and given ample time to prepare himself/herself before the interview. The interviewers will be very experienced professionals nad will make every efforts to make the interview a great experience for the interveiwee.

    Interview Questions

    • There are no unexpected questions,. An interviewee is expected to have some background of the job applied for. The interview will be more or less around the job profile, and certain technical skills that are needed to perform that role. Nothing is difficult if you know where your going.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC (Bangalore) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Usually a 3 stage interview process - 1st HR, 2nd a technical panel/ round and finally a partner round. However, as this was a PPI for me there was just 1 round with the HR Manager.
    The interview was more of a discussion on opportunities, job profile, role etc and an insight into the structure processes and people at PwC.

    Negotiation

    Not much of negotiation - salary is decided on the basis of internal and external parity (benchmarking), more so on the internal parity (and thereby was lower than expected). Still decided to go ahead because of the opportunity to grow in the offered role.
