    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PwC (New York, NY).

    Went through multiple rounds of phone and in person interviews (wasn't compensated for travel costs), asked the same questions by multiple people, was told things looked good for a job offer, then had one final interview after which they did not respond or attempt to contact me for 6 weeks, finally rejecting me. Very unprofessional experience and did not leave a good impression.
