    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
