    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PwC in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    2010 - I had an initial phone interview and was called in for in-person interviews. I interviewed with three people - an HR manager, a director, and a partner. They were all from the same department I would be working in. The process consisted of back to back interviews after which my host then showed me around the office. Overall, everyone was laid back and friendly.
