Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

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.

Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed 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.
