Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Copenhagen (Denmark)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Copenhagen (Denmark)
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in May 2014.

Interview Details

I answered a job add on LinkedIn, after which I was contacted for the 1st interview (this was about 2 weeks after sending in my cover letter and CV). Before the 1st interview, I had to take three online aptitude tests: one consisting of numerical, logical and verbal reasoning, and two focused on personality type (PAPI tests- one ipsative, one normative). At the first interview I was given feedback on the first test (verbal/logical/numerical reasoning), whereas, regarding the PAPI test, I was told they would not give me feedback, but rather compare their experience of me to the results that were still unknown to me. 1st interview was generally experiential, and to see if the chemistry was there. 2nd interview was a business case/presentation I had to prepare a few days in advance, and present to a partner, HR manager and a subject matter expert.

Interview Questions
  • I prepared very thoroughly for the experiential part (use the STAR format and focus on concrete examples of your achievements!) as well as the business case, so nothing unexpected as such came up. The subject matter expert did ask me some questions on my thoughts on certain potential issues related to the context the case took place in, but I simply and confidently admitted that my knowledge of the field/concept did not extend that far (they seemed to respect that).   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
There was no negotiation as such. I was offered a salary a little lower than what I had proposed, due to the fact that they are paying for a business graduate diploma worth over DKK 110,000.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial Communication: I sent a message to one of the managers through Linkedin to get an Interview. He replied and suggested an interview with him and the general manager. I also made someone from PwC USA to send a good reference.

    First Interview: I talked to these 2 managers to see where I could fit best in the company and they decided that I should get a second interview with another Manager

    Second Interview: I talked to the operations Manager and it went really good, so he sent me to the psychological Test

    Third interview: An interview with the psychologist... No numerical test as I expected, just typical personality tests
