Undisclosed Interview

Undisclosed

I applied online and 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I had a panel interview, then got a call 4 days later that I was the chosen candidate Two hours later the offer was withdrawn (no fault of my own really, they just decided to go with someone "internal").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.

Interview Question – I expected all the questions I was asked.   Answer Question
