Hello!

So the application process is, as I have heard, quiet hard.

Does anyone have gone through it and can share some experiences? thanks!

Hello! 

In Belgium, for graduates hires, the application process is quite similar between all Big 4 and between positions, whether it be advisory or audit. The first step is a phone interview which is very general and quite short compared to other countries. The next step consists of online assessments. Depending on the company you apply you can have different types of tests, some prefer logical tests whereas another will also include numerical or personality tests. A lot of material is available online to prepare these. 

After this stage comes the interview, typically in a selection day. Most of the time, they try to give an answer on the day of the selection or the day after which is really convenient. These selection days often start with a group case where you must show how well you perform in a group. You also have an individual case, requiring logic and not so much job-specific knowledge. 

The last step is the interview. You start with the HR interview, go over your CV together etc. And then, the most serious part, the partner or director interview. A friend of mine went through the process at PwC and another Big 4 and admitted that the interviews at PwC were harder and quite technical. But then there is always a luck factor. 

Hope this helps!
