Interview Questions

2016

"Why PwC? Do you know what the audit process involves? Can you describe a time when you showed leadership? What is your proudest achievement? Can you name some of PwC's key clients? Can you describe the key challenges for the insurance industry?"
Graduate, Dublin
"I was asked about my CV, specifically my work experience and charity work. In general it was just a relaxed chat and was one of the more enjoyable interviews I have done."
Intern, Dublin
"Both personal (but not intrusive) and professional questions designed to demonstrate my skills and other characteristics."
Graduate, Dublin
"Describe your studies to date. Why are you interested in working in this field/our firm? Name a firm whose business stories you've been following."
Intern, Dublin
"My questions were quite focused on teamwork, leadership and my previous work experience."
Graduate, Waterford
"What are your areas of interest? How do you approach your work? How would you describe yourself as a person? What has your past work experience been like? What kinds of things do you do outside of college (volunteering, hobbies etc)?"
Intern, Dublin
"A wide range. It varied from questions about college and previous work experience to highlighting different attributes that were needed for this job and what I would like to get out of it if I was successful in the interview process."
Dublin
"Questions about my life, my personality, general questions and questions about the firm. There were also a few questions about a short case study that was given to us before the interview."
Graduate, Dublin
"A client's business was described and I had to talk about challenges they might face and how PwC could sell services to them and help them."
Graduate, Dublin
"All questions were based around getting to know me as a person – my hobbies, my interests and my CV etc. I was also asked what I knew about PwC and the day-to-day job of an auditor."
