Application

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PwC.

Interview

The first round was a telephonic round where you are asked a lot of questions about your current job role, responsibilities and interesting assignments.
The second was a f2f round where again, you would be asked specifics of some interesting/relevant projects. Its here that you are asked a lot of questions about your CV and real-life examples/situations.
You are also given a "feel" of the next round, which in most likelihood is a technical round.

I am still in the process but must admit, the process is agonizingly slow.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    PwC has come to our campus for recruiting. The actually interview process was different from what was mentioned in the placement website. The first round was a GD round. Here, it is important that one participates and makes contribution in terms of a new perspective or elaborates/ analyses someone else's perspective. The next round was a telephonic interview. My experience of the telephonic interview was not very good. I almost understood the result after that round. To my surprise, the company waitlisted my application though.

    Interview Questions

    • Contray to what was expected (based on what other people had mentioned about their experience), there were a few actual technical questions based on programming languages and technology strategy for banking sector etc.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Manager interview, followed by Associate Director/ Executive Director, and then HR. It is better to have your CV forwarded through an internal reference.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate, but you should - there are salary disparities at the same experience and rank.

    Interview

    1st round was Telephonic . As I am into SAP , questions were asked on both technical and functional, also from projects I worked. It was for 35-40 minutes by a Principal Consultant..2nd round was Managerial round . It was F2F at Bangalore taken by the Director and Partner. Few managerial questions like leadership,motivation were asked. Why PwC?
    What U know about PwC? Favorite MBA Subject--Few questions on that..Final HR round was telephonic. They asked only about salary expectations,reason 4 change, how soon I can join,etc....My hobbies, engineering rank, significant achievement..etc..Overall it was very good...Interviewers were very friendly, cordial, didn't put into pressure or stress...very much professional..

    Negotiation
