I had the PwC telephone interview last week and it was fairly similar to previous posts across wikijob. The questions that were asked are set out quite strictly in line with the core competencies mentioned on the grad website.
- Why do you want to work in Audit?
- What do you now about your selected qualification?
- What will you be doing day to day and how will you combine this with your study?
4.Can you tell me about PwC and its services?
- How does PwC add value?
- Can you tell me about a recent event in the business world and the services PwC could offer to help the situation?
7.Can you tell me abou a time wjhen you worked alongside someone with a different working style to yourself? How did you cope?
- Tell me about a time when you had to achieve excellence?
9.Tell me about a time you havent achieved a goal and why not?
- Tell me about a time when you have received positive and negative feedback and how did you react?
- Can you tell me a time when you have provided exceptional client service?
These were all of the questions I was asked, yet when answering the interviewer often threw in questions about how i reacted to the situation and what I learnt. My advice would be to look at the core competencies and work around these when thinking of examples. One strange element was that I was never asked why I wanted to work for PwC.
Given that the PwC interview is probably the most rigorous of all the big 4 it is possible to feel that your interview doesn’t go as well as you hope. Following my interview I felt that I had done terrible yet I was invited to an assessment centre the following day. The best bit of advice I can give is be enthusiastic about everything. This seems pretty obvious but its good to keep n mind
