PwC Interview Questions

As part of the PwC application process, you have to complete at least one but usually various interviews. The initial interviews aim to establish if you are professionally equipped to handle the PwC job you are applying for. At later stages, the questions tackle if you match the company values and your specific team's work ethics. Overall the interviewer is interested in why you would like to work for them, in your career goals, and in your past experience. Make sure you prepare some insightful questions to ask. Below are some sample PwC Interview questions to give you an idea of what to expect.

  • Why PwC?
  • If you could change one thing in the world what would it be and why?
  • Describe the most difficult situation you have been in.

PwC Video Interview Questions

A good score on the online ability tests means that you are likely to receive an invitation to take part in a video interview. Unlike traditional interviews, this is conducted through a website where the computer prompts you with questions and records a video of your answers. The PwC video interview questions are mainly behavioural questions in which you are asked about how you would or have acted or reacted in certain workplace situations. The company is looking for ways in which you show the competencies featured in PwC’s professional framework

PwC Assessment Centre Preparation

If you dazzled the recruitment team enough with your video interview, the next and final stage of your application process is the assessment centre. There you can face a variety of challenging exercises, including a written exercise, a group exercise, and verification tests to validate your previous online test scores.

PwC Assessment Centre Group Excercise

In the group exercise, you should showcase your ability to solve a problem as part of a team. Your team is given a case which you should solve together. You should demonstrate that you are a good asset by contributing and underscoring your teams work: listen carefully to your teammates and brainstorm with them.

PwC Assessment Centre Tests

The verification tests employed at this stage of the PwC application process is typically, the most challenging exam in the entire process. Therefore, it is imperative you practise beforehand.

PwC Assessment Centre Interviews

There are also two types of interviews performed at the assessment center. The first is a traditional face-to-face interview and the second is a case study interview. In this alternate type of face-to-face interview, you are presented with a business problem that needs solving through a discussion with your interviewer.
