    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    PwC's hiring is one of the best programmes, in relation to other companies.
    1st Stage Online Test; they give you a second attempt if your first attempt didn't meet their requirements.
    Assessment Day was smooth and although i thought i didn't do well in relation to other people i proceeded through. Here i would say you have to be greatly prepared for the skills test they give you; especially in terms of the numerical reasoning test as questions will be related to each other but do not come one after another in the test, so i would advise writing down key answers or formulas so you don't have to repeat steps again but be quick.
    With the final interview it's more about testing your knowledge of the company and seeing generally whether you can communicate with people and understand things well.
    I would say networking and communication is key so don't be shy. And be prepared in terms of commercial awareness and the company itself.
    Other then that everyone is really friendly throughout the entire process.

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Following the standard aptitude testing stage, was interviewed by phone by an HR person. It was a competency-based interview. Overall, the process is very standardised given the amount of applicants. Applicants are accessed against the PwC hiring framework and break down all questions into five categories. PwC outlines the selection process in great detail on its graduate hiring page.
