    Software Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at PwC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call after about 3 weeks from the recruiter. This was general screening and next round was scheduled with Director.
    Interview with Director lasted for almost an hour and next round was scheduled with team. They came in groups and complete interview lasted for almost 4.5 hours. Mostly concentrated on my previous experience and how to react in various situations. Interviewers seems pretty satisfied.
    At the end HR told me they will get back after a week.

    I followed up after 2 weeks and HR said they will let me know the next day. Nothing until 3 weeks, I followed again with the HR, who then said that they are still looking for a candidate with CLOSER experience to the requirements.

    I thought this could have been known by having a closer look at my resume. Again the interviewers seemed to be pretty good and friendly, but recruiter was immature and could not answer even the simple questions regarding the company policies.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at PwC in January 2012.

    Interview Process is ok. Not really tiresome. First HR will call to know you current job status, interest level and so on. Then there will be a telephonic interview. Then face to face interview with 4 or more ppl for 4 hrs. Process can be longer anything from 4 weeks - 8 weeks. Sometime they will not let you know abt ur result for 4 weeks. Depends on demand for resource.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The direct admit hiring process is laborious and tedious. I met with 18 individuals and had to fly all over the US to do so, but the process is meant to be just that - tedious. The recruiters and staff were fantastic and helped me navigate the process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Relatively inflexible and as one of the Big 4 they know what they are doing to try and "entice" through other perks.
