    Undisclosed Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    I'm trying to remain as anonymous as I possibly can, but I should share my experience as a heads up for others.
    I had a panel interview, then got a call 4 days later that I was the chosen candidate Two hours later the offer was withdrawn (no fault of my own really, they just decided to go with someone "internal"). I did not do anything crazy, like quit my current job or anything, and I was not upset that I did not get the job, I just thought that the way they handled it was extremely unprofessional.
