I recently received an offer to join PwC in November and I want to share my experiences with you since I’ve used this forum to help me.
Since I applied for the November intake I didn’t have a telephone interview. Just application- tests - Ac - final interview
Here is my experiences from the Ac and final interview:
As I’m sure you’re aware this is split into 3 sections. Testing, written exercise and group exercise
Testing is just numerical and logical. Don’t be disheartened if you don’t finish your tests in time, especially numerical as it’s tough to complete in time. Also remember to skip any difficult questions and come back to them instead of spending too much time on them,
Group exercise is fairly standard, the important thing here is how you communicate to the group, make sure you contribute and don’t keep repeating what others are saying. Also it’s very important to reach a conclusion.
The written exercise is by far that hardest. To say you are under immense time pressure is an understatement, you can’t afford to read everything so you have to skim.
Since I didn’t have a telephone interview there were some competency questions as well as your standard interview questions.
Make sure you have a news story where you can talk about how it could impact PwC and know about the audit reforms.
If you have any questions feel free to post/message me and I’ll get back to you
