I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC in November 2012.
Interview Details – Got an interview call from HR manager only because of a referral from my school senior who happened to be a manager in PwC now. Started with 1 HR interview (very simple and direct questions related to visa status and previous work experience), followed by 2 Telephone interviews (one by a director and one by a tech manager). Position was related to Insurance industry. I did not have any experience in Guidewire and PwC is specifically looking for candidates with Guidewire experience (or may be an indepth P&C insurance knowledge candidate). I did fine/well in the phone interviews and questions were in general (about prior work experience and some insurance related questions) . This whole process of 1 HR interview and 2 Telephone interviews took over a month and a half. Then a final in-person interview was scheduled a month and half later (after the 2nd telephone interview was done). In-person interview with 3 Directors and 1 Partner. Discussions sounded very casual (again related to the position/work experience) except for with one director who asked the typical behavioral type of questions like why PwC, why should PwC hire you..and also some questions related to a particular scenario in policy issuance. I thought i did fine(not extraordinary) but was positive & expecting an offer. After two and half weeks the HR manager replied that i did not get the offer :( .. The overall process was good, though veryyy slow. The HR manager responded well for any email/call, though a little late sometimes (lot better than other companies I interviewed with) .
