Interview

Great! The recruiter was really helpful in trying to set me up well for the first interview with the hiring manager. The interview with the hiring manager went well. Though I did not get an offer, they offered feedback for why I did not get the role.

Reached out by a recruiter, said that there would be an oa. I filled in the survey but I didn't get the oa. I think maybe they had a lot of candidates

Consulting

works at 

Deloitte

I'm very interested in PwC's Data, Analytics & AI consulting practice. I currently work at Deloitte in Audit and I am pursuing data analytics-related certificates on Coursera. Due to the type of work I do, I don't have project experiences, but I have trainings on Python, SQL, and PowerBI. Moreover, as I'm an audit senior, I have project management experience. I tried to apply to jobs at PwC but landing no results. I wonder if anyone at PwC is interested to connect/offer a referral? PwC

Interview

Overall it was good experience, interviews were based on case scenarios and going through different posibilites and solutions with the hiring manager. The only thing was that the process was a little confusing during the coordination of interviews, there was some miscommunication between the recruiting and hiring teams.

Comprehensive, talk to several different PMs and directors. Most interviews are a combination of behavioral and case based questions. Be ready to speak to product-market fit, how to scale products, working with customers and influencing cross functional stakeholders

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Coursera (Cumming, GA)

Interview

Talked to a recruiter first for technical background screen. Then a 1 hour “code up a solution to this problem” - passed that; then scheduled for 6 hours of back to back interviews with a 45 minute break in the middle. One of the interviews was another technical online coding problem but I wasn’t told that until we had talked for 20 minutes so I didn’t have enough time to solve the problem. After the last interview I was told that someone would be in touch for a follow up. Follow up call never came. No follow up email either. I emailed multiple times to find out a status and was completely ghosted.
