    Straightforward. Questions you would expect at a big four interview. Only thing to look out for would be case studies, which can nab people. You can find very similar practice case studies online.

    I've sent my cv and cover letter and they called me 4 weeks later for an interview. It was a personal interview with a director and consultant, asking me personal questions. Later on, I had to fill in a lot of papers with my personal data.

    2 weeks later I received my offer. I had to state when I could begin and what the period was that I wanted to work at the Sao Paulo office

    Later I had to go to the lawyer office to get my paper work in order.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting and attended pre-interview night. The environment is friendly in general and could meet your interviewer for the next day. Met an unexpected small case in my interview, basically some market/revenue analysis with several graphs and numbers, not that difficult compared to MBA cases.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Application process took several stages. Firstly - screening, then - Numerical Reasoning Test ( similar to SHL test) and Verbal Reasoning Test (putting in a missing element in the logical puzzle), then - onsite english knowledge test ( 'True-False-Not Given' questions, 'choose the right headline' questions, grammar etc.). If you are successful so far, you get an invitation for two or three interviews with Senior Consultant(s) and (Senior) Manager(s), where you can be asked about your education, motivation, previous work experience, knowledge of the industry etc.
    After that you get warmed up with several brain teasers. Try to listen carefully and feel free to take some time to think about the answer.
    In the end, they give you a business-related case. Again don't hesitate to ask for more information and do your best to persuade the interviewers that you are a very positive and proactive person.
    If you are good and crack the case, you get a job offer by email.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Zürich (Switzerland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    From the time the job was posted to the signing, no more than two weeks passed. I applied online and was invited for a half-day interview session. This consisted of two 30min interviews with two different partners, two 30min technical interviews with team-members/superiors, a 1h structured interview with 2 people from HR, a 45min computer aided personality test and a 60min computer aided skill test.
    The interviews with the partners were a mix of technical questions and personality questions, the interviews with the coworkers consisted of short case studies related to my field of work. With HR we talked about my CV, my goals and how I would react in various situations.
    The personality tests were rather standard (you encounter a situation, rank these possible ways to react from best to worst) and the skill test consisted of English, math and logical thinking.

    Interview Questions
    • All in all the entire process was rather straightforward, with no apparent trick questions or difficult questions.To me personally it was most confusing when I was asked to give feedback on the interview process.(My answer was that I see this as a trick question and therefore will not answer)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As this was my first job and the salary seemed rather fixed on an entry level position I did not negotiate.
