I got interviewed at PwC for Associate role in Delivering Deal Value (DDV) practice. The interview was taken by a senior manager. It was a good experience (around 30 mins duration). He told me that the next round would be conducted by director. But it's been more than 15 days since the interview and there is no communication for further rounds. Does it confirm a rejection?? It would be great if someone could give some clarity in this as it was a dream role for me.

Had an interview scheduled for today. The recruiter pushed back the interview time twice because of the Director’s calendar conflicts. I joined the call and the Director never showed up. Recruiter’s cell went straight to VM and no reply to my email... 2nd interview scheduled for 10 min from now- stay tuned.
