    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Asked 5 questions that are competency based. It could be quite intense. Think clearly of your examples and analyse it inside your brain before you answer. Keep calm, think of questions to ask at the end, show your professional experiences if you have. Just show off all you can do and all you have, don't limit yourself/be shy.

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I had a telephone interview and they asked me questions surrounding the five competencies. They will explain to you each competency first and remind you to bear each competency in mind when you answer their questions. It is quite straightfoward, mine was a bit casual at first and the interviewer made some some talk and it was enjoyable, before going straight into the competencies. He was very clear with the structure of the interview.

    It was exactly as described on wikijobs so thanks for everyone who did those. What i would emphasise is the importance of writing a conclusion in the writing test AND the pass mark is really pretty low for the numerical test. I think I did half of the questions (maybe even less) and a scraped in so dont worry too much!

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    First round interview with two directors in the legal function, one hour long. Very detailed inquisition into previous work history - both interviewers were skilled in soliciting information from me without being aggressive. Went into great depth, including asking me to recall the four major negotiation points on a major deal I worked on almost two years previously, plus specific examples of bespoke drafting I had done. As well as discussing my prior work experience I was asked what I knew about the role, the team and PwC more generally. Also delved into my motivations for wanting to join their organisation.

    Interview Questions
