    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Long and needlessly complicated process but they did get through it on their time table. Professional HR personnel but getting the interviews lined up proved to be difficult. They admitted that I was probable overqualified but that did not matter on the pay side of things.

    Interview Questions

    • They made an offer, expected no counter offer and wanted an exceptance within a 24 hour period. I told them I had other offers as well and was very open and honest.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PwC in June 2014.

    Interview

    Very long and laborous. Need to limit the amount of interviewers and time to interview. There were many people met with and they did not have a solid understanding of the position or what my skillset entailed. Need a deeper dive in to the interviewers qualifications.
