I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PwC.
Interview Details – Hiring process is pretty efficient. Generally starts with a short screening call to make sure you've got the right temperament to work at PwC (upbeat, positive, intelligent, works well with others), then moves on to a live interview with about 3 different people on the same day, just to get a better feel for what you bring to the table. Those 3 interviewers compare notes on all applicants and make recommendations. Final step is a quick call with a partner, but this is just a formality if you've reached this far.
