Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    After submitting the online application, I was invited to complete online tests. Received a report with the results from the tests, and then an invitation for a telephone interview. Only one date with several time slots were available. The interviewer went over all 5 core values of the company - you can find them in the report, and asked for an example where I demonstrated them. The connection dropped twice during the interview and the interviewer said "candidates are advised in advance to make sure their connections are stable before the interview". I checked my connection a couple of times before that and it was working perfectly fine.

    Give me an example of a situation when you received feedback and had to change your strategy because of the feedback.

    Give me an example of a situation when you had to work in a team in order to achieve a common goal.

    The feedback from the interview stated that the language I used for one of the questions (I assume the most difficult one) was too technical.

    Interview Questions
    • Discuss a recent business development. How can this be implemented in PwC? How can this be applied to the division you have applied for (IT Risk Assessment)? Why? Where did you read about this? How many articles/news/reports did you read on the topic?   Answer Question

    I made it to the telephone interview round. The online tests are challenging but enjoyable, the feedback might be helpful for the interview rounds. My interview was rescheduled twice. The interviewer is nice and her questions are all around 5 key competencies.

    Phone interview was mainly competency based, Compentencies they look for can be found on their website.
    Best advice is to prepare specific examples and be ready to go into more depth.
    Also a few questions to test commercial awareness. Have a recent business news story ready to talk about.
