    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I went to the Assessment Centre at London Bridge in November 2014. We have group exercise, psychometric tests, written exercise and a lunch with graduates. It was fun but challenging. All tests except the group exercise were time pressured. Pay special attention to the structure of your written report. In the group discussion, make sure you contributions but avoid speaking over others or giving random opinions. Try to build on others' ideas. Be attentive to figures.

    Interview Questions
    • Numerical Test was time pressured and the questions for each chart were scattered instead of being in sequence.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The process takes a long time starting with the application, then psychometric tests. You get two chances to do these tests should you fail the first set and then go onto interviews. The tests are a personality analysis which isn't timed along with numerical reasoning (use SHL to practice), followed with logical l reasoning. The interview is competency based and takes about 45 minutes.

    Look up the PwC Professional framework - this is what the questions are based around and will help you considerably. Business Acumen, technical capabilities, leadership, global acumen, and relationships. These 5 things are also the subject of the personality test

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected question: name a company you have looked up recently (to test business acumen) -   View Answer
