Anyone has an idea what the current employment check entails? Joining on Aug 9 and got an email that my current employment check begins on Aug 5. I feel like they are cutting it close. What are the chances that delays my start date?

Also, I left my company last week because I wanted a week off before starting at Deloitte. Is this going to be a problem?

They will let you start on agreed date but the offer is conditional upon clearing background check. So if for any reason you cannot clear the background check the offer get rescinded.

It's ok to get your background check done. Max that takes 3-4 days. Then you can speak to your recruiter about your preferred joining date and an updated offer letter.

Hi, could someone please show or tell what PwC's cohort model for an entry level associate role? It's the Project Management Consulting Associate role in the Acceleration Center (remote) in case there's salary bands within that group. I'm in the interview stage and would like an idea of where I'll be within that range if I receive an offer. Recruiter gave typical 50-60s range for the role. Seemed kinda low to me...how open is PwC to negotiating? Cross posting. Thanks!

Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs.
