I just got an offer from PwC and since the posts on the forum, here, have been very helpful, I thought I’d share my experience with people who’re in the process of getting the job. With respect to the first (telephone) interview, there is a set pattern. It is given on the PwC website:
The link mentioned above gives you an insight to all the possible competencies you might be asked. Also, I’d prepared a set of examples for them counter questioning me on the aforementioned competencies, which for all the possible reasons depend on the interviewer. You should be concise with your answers and should be straight forward. I don’t think you should try n beat around the bush, they will know if you’re over-exaggerating on some questions and might cross question you there. Also, I’d advice you to sound very confident and speak up.
As far as the first interview goes, that’s the best possible advice that can be given, and I gained from this advice a lot.
If anyone has any other questions, feel free to Pm me and I’d be happy to discuss, in further detail, my interview.
Good luck to all
